adidas Consortium brings us the UltraBOOST Mid Proto
It was never the question whether they would drop here or not. It was more of when. During the last few days of May, adidas Consortium unveiled the UltraBOOST Mid Proto, a shoe inspired by early-stage prototypes and sneaker samples.
An oddity of sorts, each shoe features a full Primeknit upper in Neon Yellow, with suede overlays to provide contrast. As the UB Mid features a sock-fit design, the “Prototype” is reinforced by an extra-thick collar and signature TPU heel unit similar to that of the 1st gen UltraBOOST. The Consortium tongue tab is present along with a woven herringbone heel pull and a minimalist lacing system.
In keeping with the shoe’s prototypical inspirations, each shoe features a different colorway; for the left shoe, the Neon Yellow base is countered with Collegiate Navy suede overlays and printed white 3-stripes marks; the right foot then features Grey suede overlays with navy leather 3-stripes marks. If you’re feeling the adidas Consortium UltraBOOST Mid Proto, head on over to Commonwealth GB5, as it is a store exclusive.
