Launched in 2005, Berlin/NYC-based online platform HIGHSNOBIETY has become a global specialist on style, streetwear and sportswear.
This week, Highsnobiety continues to collaborate with the world’s leading brands as they team up with adidas Consortium on the ever-so-popular UltraBOOST and the always timeless Campus 80s.
The UltraBOOST was originally designed for distance running. Unveiled in 2015, the combination of lightweight adidas Primeknit and BOOST™ technology earned its acclaim among the athletic community. However over the past year the UltraBOOST has found a home on the streets with stylistically-inclined sneaker-wearers.
The UltraBOOST comes in a minimalist lavender grey colourway, highlighting the design’s aesthetic elements. Key features in this release include a soft taupe knitted upper with a matching real leather cage, alongside a leather insole with custom Highsnobiety patterning and branding, enriching the model from its athletic roots and giving the UltraBOOST the luxury treatment.
The Campus 80s was originally introduced in the ’70s for use on NBA courts. Back then, when basketball was a more violent, less watchfully refereed sport, the low-top silhouette enjoyed a memorable post-NBA career in hip-hop and later as a fully-fledge lifestyle shoe. Now, the classic model arrives with a never-seen-before glove leather upper and contrasting butter soft tan leather lining that features custom Highsnobiety patterning and branding.
The adidas Consortium x Highsnobiety UltraBOOST and Campus 80s will drop in store only at Shelflife on 9th of April 2016.
The price of the adidas Consortium x Highsnobiety UltraBOOST is R3299.00, and the price of the Campus 80s is R2499.00
