adidas’ UltraBOOST Uncaged “Multicolor” Is Available Now

Visit the original post to see all 3 images from this gallery.

Following up on the first look we provided at the adidas UltraBOOST Uncaged “Multicolor” back in January, we now have official confirmation of a release for the much-anticipated sneaker.

Featuring a simple black upper, adidas has opted instead to allow various vibrant colors threaded throughout the black to serve as the sneaker’s flash. Additionally, the Three Stripes branding on the medial sides of the sneaker have been emblazoned with a clean metallic finish to add a little extra emphasis on the otherwise dull upper, and as a result the Multicolor rendition of the UltraBOOST Uncaged is one of the cleanest UltraBOOST releases ever.

The adidas UltraBOOST Uncaged “Multicolor” is now officially available at stockists like Feature for a retail price of $180 USD.
