adidas Gave Me the Opportunity to Design My Own Ultra Boost


Dreams do come true!

To celebrate the grand opening of the adidas NYC flagship store, adidas is giving people a chance to design their own Ultra Boost. Yes, you read that right!

For the first time ever, the Ultra Boost is available for customization on miadidas starting tomorrow, December 1 exclusively at the 5th Avenue adidas NYC flagship store.

As for me, adidas gave a select group of people early access to design a pair of Ultra Boost. Everyone knows I’ve been rockin’ with Boost since the cushioning technology debuted in 2013.

That said, you can imagine how excited I was when I received the invite.

Three base colors were available for my design: Dark Grey, Light Grey, Ice Green. I was originally a little disappointed because I thought there would be more color options, but to be honest, I’m glad it wasn’t. It literally took me 20-30 minutes to decide which color LACES I wanted.

Each order comes with two sets of laces. The laces I ended up selecting are a lighter grey than the pair seen above.

Breakdown of my design:

-Solid Dark Grey Primeknit
-Grey Cage with Ice Green Stripes
-Ice Green Heel Counter & Tongue Tab
-Dark Grey Outsole
-Light Grey & Ice Green Laces

Overall, I’m extremely pleased with my design and I can’t wait until they arrive. I have so much more respect for color designers because the process can be nerve-racking at times.

You spend so much time going back and forth trying to perfect the colorway. There’s no telling how much time I would need with limitless color options. However, I’m ready when you’re ready, adidas!

When my pair arrives, I’ll take some photos and share with you guys.

The retail price is $265 if you want to design a pair. But remember this customization offer is exclusively available at the new adidas NYC flagship store.

Thanks once again to adidas for the opportunity!
