Whether you’re looking for something that turns heads or is just a cool, comfortable shoe, the Ultra Boost is a new favorite among sneakerheads, stealing a little bit of Nike’s Air Jordan thunder these days and showing Yeezy some real competition.

Unless you spent the first part of December skiing the slopes in Aspen, Colorado, you probably haven’t been able to get your hands on this rare pair of adidas Ultra Boosts released by Kith owner, Ronnie Fieg.

The Parley x adidas Ultra Boost might be one of the rarest releases, with only 50 pairs made, but the message behind this sneaker—and the materials used to create it—are what set it apart.

In the last ten years, Hypebeast has become one of the most respected men’s style publications on the web. To celebrate their ten year anniversary, they teamed up with adidas to get in on the Ultra Boost hype. The resulting sneaker was the first Ultra Boost release to feature an “uncaged” design. If that’s a new term for you, the uncaged pairs have the TPU “cage” removed from the midfoot for a more sock-like fit and feel. In other words, it doesn’t get comfier than this pair.
