From the ground up

Just four months after adidas finally unveiled its long-rumored collaboration with Alexander Wang, it seems the pair is already back together and creating new pieces. This brand new laceless BOOST sneaker has just been leaked, thanks to Reddit user fucknadav.

In contrast to the Creeper-style shoe offered up last September, this new silhouette boasts a laceless design similar to that of the NMD City Sock, with the usual Primeknit upper replaced with a lightweight mesh. The ankle also appears to have been overhauled, with a knitted construction offering a cozy and satisfying slip-on mechanism. The upside-down Trefoil logo (seen on almost every piece in the last collection) is placed at the heel counter.

Another image, taken at the after party to the Alexander Wang SS17 show, again back in September, appears to show a model wearing the shoe. Take a look below.


Stay tuned for more information.
