adidas Yeezy Boost Wont Release In March
Thought the Yeezy Boost 750s were releasing on March 18th? According to High Snobiety and other confirmed sources, there will be no Yeezy release in March. In fact, the next Yeezy release isn’t scheduled until “early Summer”. Many believed that the Yeezy Boost 750 “Chocolate” would release on March 18th, but it looks like we’ll have to wait a little more. In the meantime, check out this exclusive look at the Chocolate Yeezy shoes and stay tuned for more updates on Yeezys.
With all these new colorways of the adidas Ultra Boost appearing, the popularity of this performance/lifestyle shoe has barely scratched the surface. Today we bring you a first look at the Ultra Boost “Triple Black” with a first-ever all-black Boost cushioning for this super-comfy slip-on running shoe (but still not the first all-black Boost sole we’ve seen). The entire upper is a matching murdered-out black as well, achieving that stoic and powerful tonal black appeal that has been an emphatic hit over the last year. Release info hasn’t been revealed just yet, so enjoy these photos for the time being and we’ll let you know when these arrive in stores.
adidas Releases News Colorways Of The Pure Boost X
All boost everything. adidas’ running and Originals imprints have fallen in love with the unique cushion system, and two of the brand’s most notorious models in the Ultra Boost and Yeezy 350 Boost featured the tech to help you fall in love with the advancement last year too. The latest silhouette to utilize the base is this women’s exclusive adidas Pure Boost X. The construction stands out from the norm thanks to a combination of mesh, neoprene, and a Primeknit mudguard. Translucent overlays of ventilated mesh help support while two colorways will definitely turn heads. A “Sun Glow” gradient of pink and purple features a pattern of stark contrasting black and white woven material. A triple black is also up for grabs. Both colorways are available today in a women’s exclusive size run for $120 at retailers like KITH.
This new hybrid version of the retro-inspired silhouette does away with the laces and utilizes a sock-fit Primeknit textile upper in a black and white color scheme. The BOOST midsole has been left in white while the EVA inserts are done in contrasting black. We have now learned that the adidas NMD City Sock will be releasing on March 17th in Europe and Asia with a US release occurring some time in the month of May. So we’ll have to wait a couple of months to get our pairs while those overseas get to enjoy theirs a bit early.
Kanye West Says adidas Is Producing A Million Yeezy Boosts In 2016
Kanye West is back at it again with the entertaining tweets – but this one’s got us particularly interested. It’s always worth noting when West talks specifically about his Yeezy shoes, so when he says that adidas is producing one million pairs of Yeezy Boosts this year, it means there’s hope for those who have still struck out on a pair (for retail). Is this Kanye’s way of responding to recent reports about how Pharrell is the more profitable pitchman? Or is Kanye just trying to fulfill his promise of Yeezys being available for anyone who wants them? Give us your thoughts in the comments below.
Were you a fan of the adidas NMD Yellow Camo that released earlier this year? If so, we’re pretty sure you’re also going to like this upcoming adidas NMD_R1 Primeknit Camo Pack.
This new adidas NMD_R1 pack will consist of two NMD models dressed in red and orange iterations to create the camo look. Upping the aeshetics of the shoe, is the Primeknit upper and the white Boost sole unit, it’s truly the best of both worlds. No word yet on the release date but be sure to be on the lookout as these would be great option for the spring.
Damian Lillard’s adidas D Lillard 2 comes in an all-red motif so that it can represent Portland’s famous rose gardens as well as its Rose Festival. The shoe comes in a woven upper covered in a rose patterns which is nicely contrasted by the hits of black placed throughout. Another feature worth mentioning is the metallic Oak print placed on the heels and lace lock that result in a bold and reflective finish.
The D Rose 6 is inspired by the Illinois state flower: violet. The violet flower is printed all over the upper in dark purple with black accents to create some nice contrast. The shoe also has hits of gold accents found on the lace loop, eyelets, webbing straps, signature branding and heel cap foil treatment. The shoe is completed by adding a translucent black outsole with gold flecks. Both models are set to release March 18th as the D Rose 6 will retail for $140 and the D Lillard 2 will retail for $105.
Dope concept that transcends really well on both shoes. Both pairs are really clean but if I had to choose a pair I’d go with the D Rose 6 only because I’ve seen more than enough red sneakers as of late.

adidas Celebrates Their Florist City Collection with D Lillard 2 & D Rose 6
adidas Hoops is back with their annual “Floral City” Collection, a duo that pays homage to spring’s blooming flowers in Portland and greater Illinois atop the likes of the adidas D Lillard 2 and adidas D Rose 6 Boost. Portland is known for their famous rose gardens and annual Rose Festival. adidas captures the magic through the use of a realistic red rose graphic throughout Dame’s second signature silhouette, this time featuring a woven upper with matte black to contrast for a perfect match to his Trailblazers uniform. The pair also utilizes a premium metallic Oak print on the heel with reflective accents throughout. The adidas D Rose 6 Boost “Florist City” is a bit more abstract, as Illinois’ state flower, the violet, is showcased by implementing a deep purple color throughout. Premium touches of gold land on the eyelets, lace loops, and webbing.

The adidas Tubular series has been holding down the Originals imprint for well over two years now, and the latest model known as the adidas Tubular Radial manages to mix OG sensibilities of the early 90s Tubular aesthetic with DNA from the luxurious Y-3 line. Habitual reading would lead you to believe the shade specified here is Midnight Navy, but the three stripes are settling for “Night Navy” instead, as a supple suede toecap and heel mixes perfectly with a stretchy neoprene base sure to form fit to your foot for a comfortable ride. The Long Island sneaker specialists known as Extra Butter previewed this shoe for us today, so if you’re a fan of the look head to their online shop to pick up your size.
In addition to the recently featured collaboration with Solebox, the adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged will receive more updates throughout this year, as the latest colorway is presented in Triple White.
Essentially sporting a clean white upper with subtle grey hits that consists of breathable Primeknit, the comfy material is reinforced with a tonal TPU heel cage, as it all rests atop a matching full-length sole unit. Once again, unlike its traditional counterpart, this model is free from its TPU system on the midfoot, which allows more movement and a sleeker profile.
Rounded out with matching laces, you can find this pair at select adidas retailers starting sometime during Spring 2016. Stay tuned to KicksOnFire for more.
Release Date: Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged
This forthcoming Solebox x adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged edition takes cues from the Berlin-based retailer’s district’s ‘Coat of Arms’ insignia, designed by Hikmet Sugoer.
Utilizing various shades of grey for its primary colorway across its intricately knitted upper of smooth wool and suede, the sneaker is treated with subtle touches of green on the tongue label, alongside bright red lace tips and its outsole. Further defined by being free from a TPU cage which allows extra freedom of movement for the foot as well as a clean aesthetic, the model is supplemented atop a crisp white midsole unit.
Rounded out with SB debossing on the shoe?s heel cup to identify the partnership, you can find this special edition pair at Solebox starting this Saturday, March 12th, while a wider release at other adidas Consortium retail stores will follow at a later date.
Damian Lillard And The adidas D Lillard 2 Are Clawing Their Way To The Top Of The Three Stripes
So the formula to get the best out of Damian Lillard is to ignore him. Taken with the sixth pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, which was also known as the Anthony Davis sweepstakes? Win Rookie of the Year and pull off a historic NBA All-Star Weekend performance where he participated in every event on Saturday Night. Known nationwide mostly as the second banana behind LaMarcus Aldridge? Roll off two straight All-Star appearances. Left to fend for himself after his follow Portland starters bolted for other teams, left off the 30-man Team USA pool, left behind this past February’s All-Star team? Put up mind-boggling numbers, lead the Trail Blazers to a potential playoff spot and get invited back to Team USA. If there’s one thing we’ve learned this NBA season that doesn’t involve Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors – whom Lillard beat and lit up for 51 points – it’s that Dame doesn’t take too kindly to slights.
And yet here we are ignoring him again. His second adidas signature shoe, the adidas D Lillard 2, is available now, but you can be forgiven if you forgot that it existed. After a solid first year with the adidas D Lillard 1, the Lillard 2 went for a more performance-based look that still managed to maintain a very fan-friendly price point. With John Wall out and Derrick Rose receding into the background, Lillard seemed poised for even bigger things. But in the signature shoe landscape, the Lillard 2 has been overshadowed by the Nike giants and now, he has to deal with growing Stephen Curry behemoth over at Under Armour. And then there’s the matter of when sneakerheads talk about adidas, they’re talking about Kanye West, the NMD, the ZX Flux and everything else under the Originals banner before they get to Dame. We’ve already shown you what is possible with the adidas D Lillard 2 on mi adidas and what a great option they are, but it just doesn’t seem to hit with the audience.
So what does Dame do? He shows up at Foot Locker to give away and sign Lillard 2s for the fans to build his audience. He goes on social media talking to the people and getting them involved with #4BarFriday. He scores 51 points and beats Steph and the Warriors and posts another 50-point performance in a losing effort. He keeps on getting better and building the Lillard empire in the Northwest without a lot of people noticing. It’s a slow burn, but just like the Blazers surprising the NBA, Dame is doing what he can to speed up the process.
So many signature shoe lines have their line in the sand moment with the third or fourth model. Take the Air Jordan 3 and 4 and see just how important they are to Michael Jordan’s legacy in the sneaker world. The Nike Zoom KD 4 catapulted Kevin Durant to the spotlight. Kobe Bryant’s fourth signature shoe with both adidas (THE KOBE) and Nike (Nike Zoom Kobe 4) were game-changers. As the biggest and best name still standing in adidas Basketball, Damian Lillard is in a great position to be their flagship athlete (sorry, James Harden). The adidas D Lillard 2 has a long way to go (people are just realizing that there is a Boost version), but you can bet that if Dame can once again have a strong showing in the playoffs and work his way into the Team USA roster in Brazil this summer, the Lillard 3 could potentially be huge for adidas and Dame.
Curry might not be the only lights-out shooter who is climbing up the signature shoe ranks. We live in a world now where the Under Armour Curry Two could potentially outsell the Nike LeBron 13. If Dame can continue this upward trend with the Blazers and maybe form a possible rivalry with Steph and the Warriors, it’s not impossible to see a day where kids are not just going to the swoosh for the sake of the swoosh. Who would have thought that as recently as this summer when Aldridge, Wesley Matthews and the rest moved on? I’m going to say Dame and that’s about it. And he probably likes it that way.
