Amidst upcoming Nike and Air Jordan releases 2019, adidas and Parley for the Oceans have designed a 100% recyclable performance running shoe. For a while now, adidas has been working with Parley for the Oceans to minimize plastic waste in the oceans. Back in 2015, they introduced the world’s shoe having uppers completely made up of recycled ocean gillnets and plastic. 50 pairs of concept and each pair could only be acquired via participation in an Instagram-based competition. In 2019, adidas is aiming to use Ocean Plastic in the production of “11 million pairs of shoes” and by 2024, they will be using “only recycled polyester” in all products.
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.
As mentioned, these three adidas Ultra Boost Clima colorways will be among the Nike and Air Jordan releases 2019 arriving later this month.

Apart from the Air Jordan releases 2019 arriving later this month, this BAPE x NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas Collection will also hit the shelves. Of course, this will not be the first time that adidas has collaborated BAPE and NEIGHBORHOOD. However, this is the first collaboration involving all three of these brands. A BAPE x adidas Ultra Boost Collection consisting of two different camo iterations made its retail debut earlier this year on February 2nd, each retailing at a price of $200. Last year, NEIGHBORHOOD was a part of another three-way collaboration that included adidas and BBC, which revolved around the EQT Basketball ADV.
BAPE and NEIGHBORHOOD appear to have dressed up the adidas NMD R1 STLT in an earthy color scheme. The Primeknit uppers of this co-designed iteration feature an overlaying pattern consisting of abstract swirls all over. Another lightning bolt-shaped pattern can be spotted on the lateral sides above its midsoles and it is covered in a bright Yellow hue, adding some contrast. Its BOOST midsoles are plain White, with two contrasting EVA pods, one of which features “adidas” branding. BAPE and NEIGHBORHOOD also seem to have redesigned its lacing system to have a cover on top with “NBHD,” “BAPE” and “東京” (TOKYO) printed over it.
In the case of the adidas POD-S3.1, BAPE and NEIGHBORHOOD have split each shoe vertically to sport a varying color scheme. The lateral sides of each shoe are covered in a dark camo print, while the medial sides are dressed up in a lighter, subtle camo print. adidas’ “Three Stripes” can also be spotted on the medial sides, while the lateral sides feature BAPE’s signature “eyes” and “shark teeth” patterns. Furthermore, BAPE’s “Ape Head” logo and NEIGHBORHOOD’s “Skull and Crossbones” logo are present on the heel tabs. Similarly, its BOOST midsoles are also plain White and its rubber outsoles are entirely covered in Black.
BAPE x NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas NMD R1 STLT Release Date: April 19th, 2019 Retail Price: $200
BAPE x NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas POD-S3.1 Release Date: April 19th, 2019 Retail Price: $200

After joining recent adidas releases 2019 in a “Geode” colorways, the Yeezy Boost 700 v2 will soon arrive in a colorway nicknamed “Vanta.” Back in May 2018, Kanye West shared the first photo of the Yeezy Boost 700 v2 on Twitter and even revealed another, different colorway.
When Kanye West returned to the studio in July 2017, he was spotted rocking a new adidas sneaker model somewhat resembling the Yeezy Runner. From that first look, it seemed to be equipped with the unique soles of the EQT Responsive, which was formerly named the KB8 3. By October that year, this model was revealed to be the adidas Yeezy Desert Rat 500. The very first Yeezy 500 colorway that was officially unveiled was “Blush” and it was quite similar to the colorway that recently made its retail debut. The adidas Yeezy Desert Rat 500 colorway that you see here is dubbed “Salt” and it is available now.
