Model: Ultraboost 1.0
Release Date: June 25
Buy: In-store and online at Extra Butter
What We’re Saying: This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of Adam Sandler's most iconic films, Happy Gilmore. Extra Butter is celebrating the occasion by releasing a collaboration with adidas that draws inspiration from the coveted gold jacket that Gilmore and Shooter McGavin are vying for in the movie.
The colorway of the Ultraboost 1.0 is a direct nod to said gold jacket, with the upper being done up in gold-colored Primeknit with suede overlays at the toe and heel. Seemingly inspired by a golf ball, the white Three Stripes cage and matching Boost midsole serve to complement the base, while McGavin's signature finger gun sign is featured at the toe. Elsewhere, we find debossed Ultraboost branding at the heel, a white adidas logo on the tongue, and a graphic printed insole with iconography from the film. Golf enthusiasts can take advantage of a webbing incorporated across the striped cage of the shoe, where you can stash three golf tees.
Extra Butter's Happy Gilmore collection includes other items from adidas, as well as additional capsules made in collaboration with Seamus Golf, Phat Scooters, Vice Golf, and Asher Golf. The adidas portion features a version of the ZG21 spiked golf shoe inspired by Happy’s mentor, Chubbs Peterson, in addition to a pair of Adilette Boost Slides that draw from Adam Sandler's character, Happy Gilmore.
You can look forward to the entire assortment launching at both Extra Butter locations, online, and through the Extra Butter mobile app on Friday, June 25. In the meantime, here are some of the best Ultraboosts you can buy right now.
There's nothing left to do but cue up "Endless Love."
