We’ve seen Nike’s Black History Month Collection, and now adidas will be adding to theirs as we now take a look at this upcoming Ultra Boost Uncaged iteration.
This adidas Ultra Boost comes in a mix of White and Cream throughout its Primeknit upper with a tonal heel counter and tongue label. Adding a bit of contrast are its medial eyelets that comes in Purple, Black, and Red. A White Boost midsole, Black rubber outsole and an insole that displays a bright Orange basketball, “Celebrating Black Culture” in Purple lettering, and “CBC” in a White font to complete the design.
adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged CBC Black History Month Release Date
Look for this adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged “CBC” to release very soon at select adidas Originals retailers and adidas.com. The retail price tag is set at $180 USD.
Style Code: EE3731
UPDATE: Due to an inappropriate design as well as receiving backlash – due to releasing a White shoe to celebrate Black History Month, adidas has decided to cancel the release of the all-White Ultra Boost Uncaged. Below is a statement from the Three Stripes. However, the shoe is still currently available at SSENSE.
“Adidas released a new collection in celebration of Black History Month featuring designs inspired by the Harlem Renaissance. It includes footwear and apparel across a variety of categories. Toward the latter stages of the design process, we added a running shoe to the collection that we later felt did not reflect the spirit or philosophy of how adidas believes we should recognize and honor Black History Month. After careful consideration, we have decided to withdraw the product from the collection.”
