For many sneakerheads, it was the adidas Ultraboost that sparked their obsession with footwear. While Kanye West helped the silhouette rise to the top of the agenda when he wore a triple white pair during the Billboard Music Awards in 2015, collaborations with popular brands and sneaker boutiques since then have helped sustain the hype.
But given the fact that Ultraboost collaborations often sell out in the blink of an eye and resale prices explode after the fact, there are a lot of less-hyped Ultraboost iterations that deserve a spot in your rotation. That’s why we’ve compiled our own list of the best Ultraboost silhouettes still available to shop at their retail price right now.
Peep our selection of Ultraboost sneakers below.
Following on from the Ultraboost 21 which shifted the silhouette closer to performance ideals than the hallmarks of a lifestyle silhouette, the Ultraboost 22 offers supreme comfort and support. That's not to say it's not an everyday selection too, though. Just take a look at some of the fire colorways filtering in for summer for proof.
Ultraboost Web DNA
External collaborations on the Ultraboost silhouette have actually taken a backseat in recent months. To counteract that, adidas has put a big focus on developing the shoe in-house. New iterations like the Web DNA bring a refreshing new angle to the silhouette.
Climacool 2 DNA
Another of the highly successful new takes on the Ultraboost is the Climacool 2 which sees the signature components of the Climcool transplanted onto the Boost midsole and Primeknit upper of the Ultraboost.
Ultraboost 5.0 DNA
For all the adidas Ultraboost purists out there, this black edition of the 5.0 DNA keeps things at their beautiful basics. For those looking to make more of an impact, the camouflage version should do the job.
The adidas Ultraboost 21 ushered in a new era for the silhouette. Taking a much more performance-focused direction, it's a classic reworked. A chunky heel unit provides improved support for runners while extended perforation to the toebox and sidewall ensures you're cool from start to finish.
