Alongside this month’s Air Jordan releases 2019, an Ultra Boost Clima designed by adidas Missoni will soon be arriving at select retailers. In case you are wondering, Missoni happens to be a high-end Italian fashion house located in the city of Varese. The Ultra Boost Clima is one of adidas’ many running shoe models. Most recently, it hit the shelves back in June 2018. adidas released two colorways that were simply referred to as “Solar Red” and “Solar Yellow.” They made their retail debuts on June 14th, 2018, each at a price of $200. This will apparently be the very first collaboration between adidas and Missoni.
To construct the Ultra Boost Clima, adidas used a special Clima yarn that wicks moisture, more specifically. As a result, it happens to be a very breathable and lightweight shoe due to its Primeknit uppers that feature an open weave. Therefore, it can be worn for running no matter how hot the weather might be. Even its midfoot cage has been knitted in for additional support and its Fitcounter molded heel counters offer even more freedom of movement to the wearer’s Achilles. The Ultra Boost Clima is also equipped with responsive Boost cushioning and Continental Rubber, stretchweb outsoles, all of which enhance the wearer’s running experience.
While the adidas Ultra Boost Clima already comes with Primeknit uppers, Missoni seems to have further enhanced and modified the Clima yarn knitting of its uppers. One of these three iterations appears to have multicolored uppers, another seems to be dressed up in Black and White, and the third is apparently the subtlest of the three, but still a bit multicolored. A common detail between the three is the fact the medial “Three Stripes” cage of all three iterations appears to be mismatched. The tongues feature “Missoni” branding. Another common detail is that the Boost midsoles and Continental Rubber outsoles of all three iterations are plain White.
