Brand: adidas

Model: Original Ultra Boost (Black/Purple)

Key Features: The prototypical sneaker comes in its original and iconic dark purple and black colorway. It retains the original's quintessential dark upper and substantial weight. The limited-edition silhouette is an exact replica of the very first Ultra Boost that re-defined the industry three years ago. Its BOOST sole is the leading technology in the running shoe space, offering runners ground-breaking energy return, superior cushioning and adaptability.

Release Date: December 1 to 7 only

Price: $180


Editor’s Notes: Today we’re welcoming the Original Ultra Boost Black/Purple colorway back into the footwear rotation, three years after introducing Boost technology that brought a lightweight flex to the running shoe.

Starting today, December 1, adidas will drop 11 Ultra Boost sneakers for a week straight until December 7. What better way to kick off Boost Week’s seven-day drop than with the colorway that started it all?
