From flavorful foods to whole body verses, Action Bronson knows a thing or two about doing it big. The New York MC masterfully positioned himself to be a multi-platform threat early in his career by harnessing two of his passions – music and food.
Like most rappers, Bronson is known for keeping a proper stable of sneaker flavors in his closet; but not many people know that Action briefly repped for adidas. In less than 18 months Bronson went from having a prospective sneaker collab with adidas to damning the brand for doing him dirty.
Without any kicks being released, the partnership faded away into obscurity, leaving fans to wonder what could’ve been. Before things fell apart word on the street was that Action’s kicks would’ve been a pair of Ultra Boosts per AB himself and via GQ images of a trio of orange/black/Real Tree samples. All three pairs were straight bangers and spoke to Bronson’s style flawlessly, but there was a rumored fourth pair that sneakerheads never saw…
Luckily the homies, The DNA Show, came up on these unicorns and they’re fire!
These Action Bronson x adidas Ultra Boosts are reminiscent of a pair seen in the GQ interview, but the heel clip is dressed in clean black and the caging features black stitching & fusing. The DNA Show breaks down the story of these unreleased beauties perfectly, so peep their video below and some detailed photos of the unreleased Action Bronson x adidas Ultra Boost samples!
