Where will Adidas go next with its always evolving Ultra Boost? A rendition releasing next month pushes the model in a new direction by stripping out its laces.
The upcoming Ultra Boost Laceless marks the first time Adidas is releasing a performance running shoe without laces. A re-imagined Primeknit upper allows the lacing system to be shed without compromising the shoe's overall support. Instead, a Primeknit band around the midfoot section provides lockdown. The Laceless also achieves added support through a sock collar that's thicker than what's been used previously for this shoe.
The Ultra Boost Laceless will be debuting in two colorways: The consistently popular "Triple White" and a grey one with red accents.
The Adidas Ultra Boost Laceless ($200) is set to release in Europe on Aug. 1, with its U.S. debut coming a month later on Sep. 1.
