Editor’s Notes: The next chapter in adidas Consortium’s Ultra Boost Collective is a collaboration with Paris-based brand Études.
Following hot on the heels of the A Kind of Guise Ultra Boost, which dropped last week, Études gives the Ultra Boost a lace cage-less makeover, adding the brand's customary European Union star graphic across both forefeet. A black mid- and outsole combination complements the dark blue upper.
This latest Ultra Boost will be available first through the Études store in Paris on September 8, before a global release on September 15.
The sneakers will retail for €220, which is approximately $255. In addition to the Ultra Boost, Études and adidas have also teamed up on a pack-away raincoat that echoes the functional and minimal design of the sneaker.
