adidas Consortium teams up with lifestyle publication HYPEBEAST on a custom pair of Ultra Boosts, which you can now see out of their box and tearing up the asphalt.

The sneaker comes equipped with a Primeknit toe box, an Ultra Boost sole with a silver heel insert on the inside, a leather insole adorned with both Ultra Boost and HYPEBEAST debossing, a white heel cup stabilizer, and even a NFC chip on the tongue that will give you access to an accompanying microsite.

The name itself, meanwhile, comes from the removal of the Three Stripes’ signature cage along the upper. The result is a collaborative sneaker which could almost pass as an entirely new silhouette.

Retailing for roughly $200, the adidas Consortium x HYPEBEAST Ultra Boost “Uncaged” will be available from Overkill in Berlin on December 18.
