x Universal Works ULTRABOOST 19
The next installment in the Run City Pack by Adidas Consortium drafts London’s Universal Works for a collaborative effort that draws on the three stripes’ long history of double duty in the UK, as both performance athletic gear, and as essential component of casual style.
So many Adidas fanatics in the UK share a similar origin story, in which the aesthetic possibilities of models favored for schoolyard football kickabouts, like the Samba and the Kick, were discovered, leading to a lifetime of obsessing over TRXs, ZXs, Forest Hills and so on.
Adidas and Universal Works distill this down to its essence, with a range of footwear and apparel that is designed to seamlessly transition from running performance to leisure. Technical knit fabrics provide the climate controlling, moisture managing properties that are a basic part of any contemporary running gear, while the strategic incorporation of wool into the collection’s long sleeve t-shirt adds a classic, casual touch. This approach is applied to two colorways of the UltraBoost 19, as the Primeknit upper and Boost cushioning are complimented by a luxurious pigskin suede external support/lacing cage. The high performance versatility is finished off with a tastefully muted palette of navy, earth tones and white.
