The Solebox x Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged shares the same average fit as the regular Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged shoe. The Primeknit material used on the upper of the shoe hugs the foot in an adaptive support. The lace-up closure of the shoe helps lock down the foot in a snug yet comfortable fit. This low-top sneaker is offered in men’s sizing only and in medium width.

The Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged being the origin of the Solebox x Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged gives the low-top shoe the running roots, but its over-all design made the shoe fit for casual use. One can use the shoe for both fitness and fashion purposes without risking comfort for the foot. Pairing the shoe with a suitable set of top, it can go perfectly well with a pair of regular jeans, skinny jeans, jogger jeans, fitted jeans, and even a pair of shorts.

The red detailing on the aglets, insole, and outsole of the Solebox x Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged adds to the appeal of the shoe, making it catch the eyes of the buyers. The colorway of the shoe has also gained some attention as some find it looking really stylish.

Adidas and Berlin sneaker boutique, Solebox, have worked on a few collaborations already. Their partnership has given some of Adidas’ most well-known silhouettes a fresh make-over, making amazing collaborative releases.

In 2016, Adidas and Solebox teamed up during Adidas’ third stop for their Consortium tour which was in Berlin. The Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged silhouette was given the touch of Solebox. In this version of the silhouette, Berlin’s coat of arms was the origin of the inspiration of the new design of the silhouette. The new look of the shoe flaunts the gray colorway with hints of red on the outsole, insole, and aglets. Some suede detailing is also featured on the shoe and the Solebox branding presented on the heel part and on the tongue.

  • The Solebox x Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged may be sold out in most retailers.
  • Two sets of laces are provided for the shoe.
  • The Continental Rubber outsole of the shoe provides enhanced grip and traction on different kinds of ground surface.
