Taking their revolution to new places, adidas have launched an off-pitch interpretation of the ACE 16+ PURECONTROL. This here is the ACE 16+ PURECONTROL UltraBOOST, a landmark shoe for the Three Stripes that merges the worlds of football and running to drop the brand into the mix of the football-inspired lifestyle movement.
Effortlessly making that often tricky transition from pitch to street, the ACE 16+ Purecontrol Ultraboost brings together the Primeknit laceless upper from adidas Football and the industry-leading BOOST technology used in adidas Running products, to create a product in equal proportions of beauty and innovation. Worth every inch of its Limited Collection tag, the ACE 16+ Purecontrol Ultraboost will be released in minimal numbers.
Landing in a duo of delicacies, the ACE 16+ Purecontrol Ultraboost is wrapped in solar yellow, to replicate the on-pitch colourway from the new Speed of Light Pack, as well as a blackout version. The ACE 16+ Ultraboost is the first result of adidas combining their on-pitch and off-pitch games to reinvent a silo away from the white lines and it marks the beginning of a new focus which will see future football products followed by similar off-pitch alternatives.
Sam Handy, adidas Football Vice President of Design said: “We know a footballer’s life doesn’t end when he leaves the pitch. The ACE 16+ PURECONTROL Ultra Boost takes the best upper from adidas Football, the best craftsmanship from adidas Running, and brings it together for the first time. We’ve created something that football players and fans want to see. We‘ve recognised that people love wearing our football boots on-pitch, and want to replicate that off-pitch. So we’re going to start following our on-pitch releases with off-pitch versions – this is the start of an exciting journey.”
