Featuring the classic caged construction, the High Snobiety x adidas Ultra Boost features a leather upper stripes cage in a tonal steel grey upper, black lining, and the HS logo on the insoles and the tongue of one of the shoes. Select retailers around the globe are releasing the Highsnobiety Ultra Boosts on April 9th, but there’s a shot that the shoes will drop earlier than that as part of an official lead release by the blog itself. Get a closer look here and keep April 9th marked on your calendars if these are a must-have for you.
The adidas NMD is perhaps the hottest sneaker on the market right now, selling out quickly whenever and wherever it’s released. That being said, if you’re still trying to get a pair, pay attention. Your next chance at the NMD will be the “Camo” pack of the Primeknit construction, dropping in the white and orange colorways on April 9th as well as blue and olive versions. Mark your calendars, because you know these aren’t going to last long either.
The adidas Climacool 1 comes equipped with a full Climacool breathable mesh construction, TPU overlays on the toe and quarter provide structural support, complemented by a perforated sockliner and outsole tooling for 360-degree breathability. As you can see above, the Climacool will be returning in four different tonal colorways that include red, black, green and white.
Are you excited about this release? If you are, you can pick up a pair at select adidas Originals retailers beginning on April 2nd.
The technology and materials used on the Climacool 1 make it look like a very comfortable shoe. I’ve never tried on a pair but I can definitely tell that a few silhouettes of today have taken some design inspiration from the CC1.

Derrick Roses Next adidas Signature Shoe Might Be His Best Yet
Despite staying relatively injury free this season, it hasn’t been that great of a season for Derrick Rose. Getting left off the all-star team; the Bulls possibly missing the playoffs; it hasn’t been an ideal comeback season for the former NBA MVP. However, Derrick has been showing signs of brilliance since the all-star break, with some analysts saying he’s playing his best ball since 2011. Will his sneaker for next season?the adidas D Rose 7, which we get a first look at here today?help him continue his return to NBA dominance? Here’s hoping that what looks like could be his best signature shoe yet will be matched next year by his best season yet. Enjoy this first look at the D Rose 7, and stay tuned for further details.
Sporting a shiny gold metallic gold heel counter, this adidas Ultra Boost sample once again breathes a fresh new look to an instantly classic silhouette. It’s amazing what a few changes like that will do to a sneaker that we already feel is one of the best to come out of the three stripes in a very long time.
But of course, there’s a catch to all of this and that’s in the form of the black Primeknit upper. It could just be a less than stellar image quality, but the upper appears to use the same wavy pattern as other general release Ultra Boosts and judging from past releases, that’s not a good sign.
Now it could just be us jumping the gun on this and it’s actually a pure black Primeknit upper, so stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for more information on this release.
Juan Martinez, Editor-In-Chief: Take my money already, adidas. The gold heel is a great new wrinkle to the Ultra Boost, although I hope it’s a solid counter that won’t scratch or fade right away after multiple wears. I need those to stay shiny for well, forever. Hope that’s not too much to ask.

First Look At The Porsche Design x adidas Ultra Boost
Is it just me, or has the Ultra Boost taken a back seat to the adidas NMD these last couple of months? Whether that is true or not, there’s not doubt that people will be paying closer attention to the model as its about to collaborate with Porsche Design. Today we get an official look at the Porsche Design x adidas Ultra Boost.
Collaborations between Porsche Design and adidas is nothing new, but this is the first time that it has been done on the beloved Ultra Boost.

New features on the shoe include the larger cage on the side panels that definitely give the shoe a sleeker and modern look.

Expect for these to release sometime during the Spring.
The adidas Yeezy Boost 550 is slated to be the newest model set to come out of the adidas x Yeezy line. Although much talk and rumors have been centered around the shoe and when it could possibly release, nothing has been confirmed when it comes to what the shoe actually looks like or when it will release.
With that being said, we’ve seen plenty of pictures over the last few months that show a model rumored to be the 550 that closely resembles the Yeezy Boost 350. We even say French Montana rock a pair not too long ago. Could the shoe you see above be the rumored adidas Yeezy Boost 550? The shoe does share some of the same characteristics as the 350, with minor alterations such as the higher cut/tongue and the slightly altered sole unit. If these are in fact the 550s, are you looking forward to this potential release? Let us know in the comment below.

The program concluded with a private concert headlined by Grammy nominated artist Miguel and featured DJ sets by Kilo Kush and Shlohmo.

?Our Los Angeles crew featuring Roy Choi, Atiba Jefferson, Nick Young and Miguel all bring a different flavor of creativity, style and authenticity that overlaps perfectly with our brand. Los Angeles is the perfect place to extend the NMD conversation and by allowing these ambassadors to share their idea of city exploration, we can bring the NMD story to life in a very unique and local way – that?s what our brand and this shoe is all about. This is only the beginning and we?re looking forward to the sharing and shaping the future with everyone.?
The finale event took placed in an unmarked warehouse in the Chinatown neighborhood of Downtown, Los Angeles.

Another adidas NMD Chukka Is Releasing This Time In Vintage White
The new adidas NMD doesn’t only exist in low-top form, adidas has created a Chukka boot version of the lifestyle runner to give the shoe turned boot a more sophisticated look.
Already having released in the Red Suede and Black Suede colorways, the adidas NMD Chukka will now be releasing in a pristine white colorway. This time around the upper is composed of Primeknit material. The BOOST midsole has been done in white while grey EVA inserts have been added for contrast along with a black heel tab and rubber outsole.
Take a look at the official images above and look for the adidas NMD Chukka Vintage White to release at select adidas retailers in the near future.
It’s cool to see the Chukka NMD utilize a Primeknit upper but I just don’t like the white colorway. Hopefully they release more colorways in the future.

Both of the colorways from the Geometric Camo Pack are pretty fresh that it’s hard to decide to which one I like better. The subtle camo print on the upper is a nice look.
The Nike Air Max Zero Ultra Tokyo Is For The #ChicksOnFire
Porsche Design got a chance to create their own installment of the adidas Ultra Boost, as the infamous sports car company revitalized the upper with unique black overlays that’s as far a departure from the usual Primeknit as possible. Unique waffle-iron like patterns hit throughout in a forward motion while nearly all three stripe branding is ditched for the ‘Porsche Design Sport’ callout.
