The adidas Ultra Boost is looking to evolve with this new style, which introduces a coating to the toe of the shoe.

Adidas hasn't announced the sneaker just yet, so it's unclear what exactly the purpose of the new setup at the toe is. It's possible it's an effort toward water-proofing the runner, but that feels unlikely given how the rest of the Primeknit upper is still exposed.

There is no sneaker release date information available yet for this model, although the arrival of adidas' product images of the shoe suggests that its launch isn't terribly far away.
