The adidas Ultra Boost DNA continues to act as the brand’s premier canvas for experimentation. This week, we have an early look at a new hybrid version, combining elements of the ClimaCool 2 for a sleek new design.

adidas ClimaCool technology has been a recurring element in the Three Stripes seasonal releases since its introduction in 2022, making this year the twenty-year-anniversary of the pivotal innovation. The last time we saw ClimaCool make a strong comeback was in 2017, when the original models were reintroduced to the brand’s offerings, in addition to new sneakers featuring the breathable designs. Now, to kick off the retro anniversary, adidas has pulled back the curtain on a new Ultra Boost DNA, the format used to experiment with other adidas’ properties, like ClimaCool. Subtitled the Ultra Boost DNA CC_2, this new look mixes the ClimaCool’s 3D mesh upper into an Ultra Boost shape, providing a surprisingly breathable upper with stiff reinforcement elements for a durable wear.


adidas Originals’ next creation utilizing the Ultra Boost DNA canvas, subtitled the CC_2, has not yet been announced for release, though they will drop sometime in 2022. The ClimaCool-infused silhouette will likely be available from both adidas and select retailers, with a price tag of at least $180. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more adidas release news.
