Key Features: As per the image above, the Primeknit upper is covered in signature BAPE camo, while the lace cage and heel cup are black. The Three Stripes branding on the sides is a contrasting white, with the full-length Boost midsole and Continental outsoles cast in black. Gold detailing can be found on the adidas branding on the left tongue.
There were also rumors of a triple black version with a black BAPE camo Primeknit upper; black lace cage; Three Stripe branding and heel cup; and a black Boost midsole. However, this pair was not presented at the BAPE exhibition.
Release Date: TBC (rumored to be February 2, 2019)
Editor’s Notes: After the BAPE x adidas Originals NMD launched last year, BAPE and adidas fans wondered whether a collaborative Ultra Boost would be next. Rumors have been circulating online concerning the release for months, and they reached fever pitch when @py_rates and @yeezymafia posted mockups on Instagram.
Now, BAPE has unveiled its full collaborative collection with adidas at an exhibition in Japan. Highsnobiety was on location and got some detailed shots of what’s to come from BAPE x adidas.
The BAPE x adidas Ultra Boost will be available in the above green camo colorway, alongside a selection of on-field American football apparel and gear, which you can check out below.
Rumors that the collection will be released during Super Bowl on February 2, 2019 have not been confirmed, however, taking into account the theme of the collection, that could still ring true.
Without any official information from either BAPE or adidas, however, it’s hard to verify such rumors.
