From the ground up

adidas heralds the start of the 2016 Olympic games by dropping a special set of Ultra BOOST sneakers decked out with gold, silver and bronze heel counters (no prizes for guessing where the inspiration for those came from). Each of the shoes comes decked out in a black primeknit upper (though the silver shoe comes with some added grey, too) and a ridiculously comfortable BOOST sole unit.

The kicks drop August 18 from select adidas stockists including Livestock.

adidas is also gifting special 3d-printed sneakers to Olympians.
