Wood Wood x adidas Consortium Ultra Boost Pack
10 years after their involvement in the adicolor project, Wood Wood has again joined forces with adidas. This time they have hooked up with the Consortium team to rework the UltraBoost and create 2 takes on the innovative silhouette. In preparation for this project they looked deeper into a major discovery in astrophysics made in 2014. That year, scientists announced what they believed to be in the indirect detection of gravitational waves in the afterglow of the Big Bang. As the last untested prediction of Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, finding gravitational waves proves quite a big deal… An early depiction of this wave pattern was incorporated into the shoes, working together with the Boost and Primeknit technologies to deliver a visually striking design. Alternating blue and orange color highlights are found throughout both shoes – as inserts on the midsoles, colormarkings on the Torsion sole elements, heel straps and extra set of laces for the black men’s version, as well as colored insole branding. For the women’s version we have exchanged the lacing system with an elastic mid panel creating a futuristic slip-on style. The Wood Wood x adidas Consortium Ultra Boost Pack will be available this Saturday, February 27th.
