While this certainly isn’t DOE’s first adidas Ultra Boost collaboration, it’s definitely one of their best to date. In celebration of its fifth anniversary, the Shanghai-based boutique has reunited with the Three Stripes for a silhouette that fuses the Ultra Boost 19 with the Micropacer, and it’s executed perfectly.
Inspired by the concept of “0 to 1”, the upper is crafted from a light grey Primeknit with neon blue highlights peeking through the knit for a pop of contrast. This is complemented by accents at the back, and contrasted with a bold red heel cup. Speaking of contrast, the Micropacer’s iconic shroud replaced the UB19’s usual caging system, resulting in the perfect balance between classic and contemporary.
Down below, you’ll find a full length Boost midsole, and to round it all off, the adidas Consortium handshake hits the right insole, while the left one is printed with the traditional Chinese hand salute that harkens back to the brand’s roots.
Hands down one of the best UB19 collabs of the year, the DOE x adidas Ultra Boost 19 will release exclusively in-store at atmos Sendagaya on November 8th. On the same day, DOE will be running a pop up where customers can enter a lottery to win a ‘Friends & Family’ pair. For those outside of Asia, you’ll have to wait until November 21st to cop, so make sure you stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated with more release info as it develops! While you’re here, you should also take a first look at the upcoming NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged!
