Adidas Consortium UltraBoost Kinfolk BB9520

adidas joins forces with the Brooklyn-based store/collective in the year

that they

cel

ebrate a decade of advancing

a Kinfolk life

The original UltraBOOST that launched in the early mon

ths of 2015 quickly established itself as

the most impressive example of the high-performance fu

nctionality and meticulous

craftsmanship that has come to define the adidas running

shoe roster. The UltraBOOST

Collective was formed later that year as an opportunity

for some of the most revered brands and

designers from around the world to create their own di

stinctive take on the shoe. For FW18, the

UltraBOOST Collective is comprised of A Kind of Guise,

Engineered Garments, Études and

Kinfolk.

The friends behind Kinfolk first came together in 2008,

drawn to each other from the far-flung

locales of New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. A desire to cr

eate products and experiences that

captured their shared interests and sensibilities transce

nded any geographical distance and, as

they enter their second decade together, they continue

to hone and evolve the concept of

a

Kinfolk life

. Perhaps best known internationally for the meticulousl

y-curated streetwear

selections in their flagship store, Kinfolk also apply t

heir combined creativity to multidisciplinary

spaces in Brooklyn and Tokyo.

It is this combined creativity that comes together in th

e Kinfolk UltraBOOST and the refined,

minimalist outcome is testament to how in-sync the Kinf

olk family are. What could have been an

overload of competing elements is instead a considered

study in shades of blue, rendered

across a two-tone Primeknit upper and luxurious nubuck

leather on the vamp overlay and heel

clip. At a point in their history where Kinfolk are nat

urally taking stock of where they currently are

and where they

re looking to head, the Kinfolk UltraBOOST strikes a ba

lance between

contemporary elegance and futuristic technology.
