There were only 40 pairs of the adidas UltraBOOST 2.0 Multicolor Rainbow Pack made.
That’s right, 40. Forty, in the entire world. Four-zero.
The Vice President of adidas Global Entertainment and Influencer Marketing himself, Jon Wexler, confirmed that little tidbit with superstar producer and social mogul DJ Khaled at the helm of Khaled’s Snapchat casting duties for the day this past spring.
I was blessed — and am blessed — to be able to have the special and unique relationship that I have with adidas in the worlds of sportswear, media, and entertainment. When I discovered the limited nature of the Multicolor Rainbow Pack, I not only felt flattered and privileged for being gifted such limited product from Three Stripes brand, I also knew that I had a special project on my hands.
As you all know, the adidas UltraBOOST has taken the footwear industry by storm. When I was originally sent the pre-release model, which is now known as the adidas UltraBoost OG, I found the model to be very intriguing, but it was also so low-key, and it was difficult to know what to make of it at first. The colors were so off-the-radar, but the fit was unlike anything I knew. The colors have definitely changed these days (as has the sole), but the fit seems to have only improved — to the extent that I wear UltraBOOSTs with suits, ties, and my briefcase! They’re hard to let go.
The UltraBOOST 2.0 Multicolor Rainbow Pack, a combination of the then-upgraded UltraBOOST 2.0 (which features a Continental rubber sole, sans nodules) and the UltraBOOST ST (a support model for pronating runners), presents hints of what was eventually to come with the future of adidas Primeknit, but with randomized color threads to highlight the color prism we know as the rainbow.
Now, Test Shoot isn’t about weartesting like most of WearTesters content, but I did weartest this pack. The UltraBOOST ST, while stacked with more BOOST, is so stacked with foam on the medial side in the heel and arch that walking can be altered, so the model is best for running if you have issues with gait. Beyond that, as you’ll soon see, the shoe itself is a beaut.
You can see all this for yourself, however, up close and personal, exclusively here at WearTesters. Enjoy the images of the adidas UltraBOOST 2.0 Multicolor Rainbow Pack and let us know what you think in the comments below.
