The adidas Boost Running Multi-Color Primeknit Pack Is Incredible


Boost x Primeknit x Multi-Color. It’s a match made in running/lifestyle crossover heaven which is why we’re particular excited about the upcoming adidas “Multi-Color Primeknit” Pack. We last saw the rainbow array of interwoven goodness on a Chinese New Year exclusive of the adidas Ultra Boost. That look returns here, only with a clean white base that nods at the silhouette’s most popular colorway to date. The adidas Ultra Boost ST slims things down for a lighter approach while a Navy base is contrasted with a Multi-Color forefoot section. But perhaps the most ambitious aesthetic of the trio belongs to the adidas adiZero Prime Boost, a black pair featuring splashes of random primary colorways on the woven three-stripe branding, heel collar, tongue, and toe for a truly unique look. The trio arrives at Asian retail outlets on April 2nd, so stay tuned for a stateside release date in the near future.

Rainbow Accents On These adidas Ultra Boosts

adidas adidas 1 adidas 2 adidas 3 adidas 4

Two variations of the popular adidas Ultra Boost and a pair of the adizero Prime Boost is detailed with multicolor flair for its latest iteration this season.

With the first two aforementioned silhouettes offered in white and black, each are punctuated by a vibrantly colored knitted motif which is prominent on the toe cap for the white pair, while covering the entirety for the second.

Additionally, the adizero is rendered predominantly in navy as the theme is more notable on the knitted toe box. The sneakers are currently available at select adidas accounts overseas, although a stateside release is imminent.

Author’s Take

I’m a fan of all three silhouettes but my top pick is the white pair since it’s more stylish in my view. Each has its own charm though.

Reflective Flair On The adidas Originals SL Rise XENO

The adidas Originals SL Rise is the latest silhouette to be treated with the brand’s popular XENO technology, which is essentially inspired by Xenopeltis snake found in Southeast Asia and recognized for its highly iridescent scales.

Essentially sporting a predominantly black upper with scaly textures throughout, the low-top retains its stealthy profile in original lighting, but when exposed to flash, the defining theme is scattered across its entirety in varied tones ranging from purple, neon, green and blue.

All resting atop a tonal black rubber sole unit, the sneaker is rounded out by the label’s iconic three stripe motif gracing its side panels. Other notable details include more branding on the tongue label and heel tab via the brand’s trefoil logo. Furthermore, the motifs are shaded in contrasting white.

You can purchase this pair at select adidas retailers now for $120.

I’ve been a fan since this theme was applied on the ZX Flux. The silhouette itself is appealing as well. Another solid offering.

It wasn’t too long ago that we gave you a first look at this all-white colorway of the new adidas NMD Chukka. This will be third colorway to release of the lifestyle silhouette that will be joining the red and black pairs, both which featured suede uppers.

This time around the Three Stripes switched things up and decided to use Primeknit for the upper instead of suede. 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. There is still no stateside release date for this crisp and clean colorway of the NNMD Chukka but select overseas retailers will be releasing their pairs on April 1st. Make sure you stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for the latest updates.

Author’s Take

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.

Author’s Take

I’ve never been a fan of this adidas running mode. It’s just a little bit too generic looking for me. Adding python skin on the shoe doesn’t make me change my mind.

A Rare Look At An adidas Kobe PE For Gilbert Arenas

Now almost forgotten, in the early 2000’s Gilbert Arenas was one of the greatest shooters in the NBA and one of the faces of adidas Basketball. His career may have ended on a low note with the guns-in-the-locker-room incident, but at one time Agent Zero was one of the NBA’s brightest stars. Being an NBA superstar got him certain privileges, like his very own PE colorway of the adidas The Kobe, which he wore during the 2005-06 season. In Wizards team colors, the shoe features a white upper with gold and blue accents, and is only known to exist in two pairs. Now one of them can be yours, as the very rare sneaker has landed on eBay. Enjoy a close look at the unicorn adidas The Kobe PE, and if you happen to be the world’s biggest Gilbert Arenas fan, scoop them up now.

adidas Hassled This Journalist To Prevent A New Shoe From Leaking

The big sneaker brands have tightened up considerably when it comes to preventing leaks from inside the factories and even the company walls, but they’ve never gone to inappropriate lengths to prevent a leak from happening. Today in Chicago, adidas set up shop in the streets for a photoshoot for an upcoming adidas running sneaker that had never been revealed to the public. To have the shoe out on display in one of the biggest cities in the world is not the best way to protect it from being seen (especially when mounds of fake snow act as part of the backdrop of the shoot), so when Anthony Souffle, a journalist from the Chicago Tribune, tried to take some photos of the set, he was confronted by someone from the crew. Read the rest of the details over at Chicago Tribune.

While we patiently wait for adidas to release a multicolor version of the adidas Ultra Boost, another Boost sneaker was just blessed with the multicolor treatment. Today we take a look at the adidas adiZero Prime Boost rockin’ the vibrant Primeknit motif.

The shoe starts off with a black base which is soon covered with a multicolor Primeknit construction particularly on the Three Stripes branding, toe, tongue and collar. A black heel counter, laces and eyestay helps balance things out a bit. A white Boost midsole assures you that this will be one of the most comfortable shoes you will put on. Although it’s not yet available in the states, you can get a pair internationally, (with a hefty price tag) at select international retailers.

Aesthetically, it looks amazing. I’m just curious to see if it’s as comfortable as the Ultra Boost or Pure Boost. If it is, I’m all on it.
