Gonz x adidas Ultraboost GX1694
Mark “The Gonz” Gonzales and adidas have a decades-long relationship. Having always loved the company’s adidas Originals range, the American skateboarder recently lent his creative vision to the futuristic Ultraboost model.
Similar to some of the runner’s adidas Skateboarding collaborations, the upcoming sneakers feature a generally understated color scheme on their upper unit and sole. Hits of gray and black dominate the Primeknit construction that covers everything from the toe cap to the spine, the two tones lending themselves to Gonzales’ famous shmoof ghost logo. Traditional Thee Stripes branding on the top of the tongue is replaced with the California native’s “shmoofoil” imagery (a play on the classic trefoil logo). Finally, the underfoot soles are potentially inspired by some of “The Gonz’s” favorite skate shoe tooling setups, given that black Boost midsoles are paired with gum brown tread.
Enjoy product photos of the pair ahead and find the shoes in select European stores like BSTN May 5.
