The last time adidas and Reigning Champs collaborated was back in November 2016. For those who do not know about Reigning Champs, their own website describes them as designers and manufacturers of Canadian-made essentials, but apparently that includes adidas footwear too. Together, adidas and the Vancouver-based clothing label worked together on the Ultra Boost. Reigning Champs implemented their own core design aesthetics onto this popular running model. Thus, its Primeknit uppers featured a heathered-like finish, with the “RC” logo visible on its tongues. adidas and Reigning Champs have teamed up again, and this time they have collaboratively design a brand new Ultra Boost 3.0 colorway.
The 2017 MLB season is now underway and Opening Day just went by recently. The Chicago Cubs are probably feeling a bit more confident heading into the new season than the other teams of the league. That is because Kris Bryant, the team’s outfielder and third baseman, just brought his teammates a range of Reigning Champ x adidas Athletics gear over this past weekend. The gear that his teammates were likely delighted to receive not only includes the Ultra Boost 3.0 colorway mentioned above, but also consisted of an AlphaBOUNCE iteration and a variety of apparel. Perhaps Kris may even end up rocking Ultra Boost cleats soon.
adidas and Reigning Champ both utilized their combined premium craftsmanship to dress up the breathable primeknit uppers of the sneaker in a combination of Aluminum and Clear Grey. Premium suede has also been used to upgrade the model’s signature three stripe caging system. Its heel counters, which are lined with TPU, feature some more tonal suede detailing. The sneaker’s color scheme is further complemented by the plain White-colored Boost midsoles and Grey-colored continental outsoles that it is equipped with.
Sneakerheads will agree that this latest adidas and Reigning Champ creation looks more pristine than the previous one. Reigning Champ x adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 colorway, simply dubbed “Clear Grey” is scheduled to make its retail debut at a price of $200 on April 7th, 2017.
