Good to know

Stella McCartney recreates the fit and hold of the regular Adidas Ultra Boost model. The sneaker has a decent interior for a comfortable fit without being sloppy. It comes in women’s sizing.

Adidas offers a running-inspired hold for those who are inclined to use the shoe for a few rounds around the track. The shoe has sufficient toe room while the midfoot has a nice hold. This is basically the Ultra Boost with Stella McCartney's own imprint where design goes.

The Adidas by Stella McCartney Ultra Boost is a combination of fitness and style. The shoe can be a great choice when going for a run or training in the gym. It can also be a great complement to a chic street-style outfit as well without risking comfort.

The comfort and style of the Adidas by Stella McCartney Ultra Boost are what the buyers really loved about the shoe. They loved how comfortable the shoe feels on the foot and how long-lasting the comfort is. They were also highly appreciative of the look and style of the shoe and how Stella McCartney gave a fun and vibrant vibe to it through its colorways.

In August 2015, Adidas and Stella McCartney gave birth to a new addition to their partnership and a special version of the Adidas Ultra Boost: the Adidas by Stella McCartney Ultra Boost.

The Adidas Ultra Boost has gained quite some attention since the shoe was seen worn by big names such as Kanye West. The Stella McCartney version of the Adidas Ultra Boost was made exclusively for women. The shoe showcases a Primeknit upper in a mixture of Black, Grey, and Light Pink colorway on its first release. The Flywire detailing is present and the White Boost midsole compliments the whole look of the shoe.

The following year, Adidas and Stella McCartney teamed up again to give the Ultra Boost a fresh look in a brand new colorway. The shoe rocks a white Primeknit upper with black overlays, an orange detailing on the side panels of the shoe, and pink laces. A grey heel counter, a mesh cage, a white BOOST midsole, and a black rubber outsole, finish up the whole look of the shoe.

Also by summer of that same year, as a celebration for the 2016 Summer Olympics, she partnered with Adidas again to bring a new addition to their footwear collection. McCartney picked the Ultra Boost and Pure Boost profiles and shot up their sneaker’s performance roots with fashion senses. McCartney ditched the Primeknit on the Ultra Boost with a softer, glitter-fuelled weave, which is rendered in an eye-catching gold knit. The laces and lacing system of the shoe were complemented with some white accents.

Another addition to the Stella McCartney and Adidas Collaboration is a new iteration of the Adidas Ultra Boost. This time, McCartney created a glow-in-the-dark colorway for the shoe. The Primeknit upper of the shoe was covered in a grey color with hints of some TPU detailing. Bits of volt/neon that glow when the lights are off is an addition to the Primeknit material of the shoe.

In the 2016 Fall Collection of the brand, Stella McCartney made a new iteration to the Ultra Boost, giving the shoe a vibrant colorway. The shoe showcases a mesh outer cage system in black and purple. A red and white pattern covers the upper and white color on the toe, heel, laces, and midsole unit to complement the whole new look of the shoe.

By early this year, McCartney ditched her usual colorful colorways and decided to go all white for the Adidas Ultra Boost and released the Adidas by Stella McCartney Ultra Boost Triple White. The shoe is covered in a white Primeknit upper with some hints of black. A matching white cage, heel counter, Boost midsole, and Continental rubber outsole is the finish to the new look of the shoe.

Stella McCartney has managed to give the women’s version of the Adidas Ultra Boost a brand-new look with its clean and vibrant colorways.

  • A Stella McCartney branding pull tab can be seen on the tongue of the shoe.
  • The shoe is partially lined and with a removable insole.
  • The shoe is provided with white round laces.
