Original Story (06/04/20): Images of a brand new adidas silhouette known as the X9000L4 BOOST have begun to crop up online. While it’s unknown when the pair will release, the shoe appears to be a significant step forward in adidas’ continued commitment to pushing the limits of their materials—including their flagship BOOST foam.
The shoe appears to feature a one-piece knit upper (similar to the Ultra BOOST) with an exaggerated heel, a multifaceted heel clip in the back, and printed overlays beneath a sleek rendition of the Three Stripes. Most notable, however, is the model’s thick, intricate midsole; it appears to use a sculpted, almost paneled form of BOOST foam. Parts of the midsole appear to use an iridescent coloring similar to what was seen on the ISS Ultraboost 20; however, even a shoe that futuristic only utilized one color/pattern throughout the model. Finally, the silhouette is rounded out by a multicolor rubber outsole and colored lace loops permeating the upper’s overlays.
While the black colorway seems to be the most well-documented thus far, images of a white colorway have also popped up. Pricing is rumored at $150—well below many of adidas’ other flagship BOOST models—but all other release information remains yet to be seen. Check out leaked photos below and stay tuned for updates on the adidas X9000L4 BOOST.
