Parley and adidas have their sights set on selling 5 million sneakers this year. While that sounds huge, it shouldn’t be too difficult with great new pairs like the “Deep Sea” Ultra Boost 4.0 that we got our hands on. Check out our full review below.
Parley for the Oceans and adidas are back at it. In the last few months, the two have released an unprecedented amount of sneakers. By now, everything from slides to NMDs to performance runners have taken on the recycled plastic look, and there is more to come. This month, the two have prepared another exciting offering of the Ultra Boost 4.0 just a few short weeks after their first collab on the new silhouette. The rapid release schedule from Parley and adidas should not come as a surprise, as they announced plans to sell at least five million pairs of the recycled footwear by the end of 2018.
Parley’s new “Deep Sea” colorway is one of the best new Ultra Boost looks in quite a while. The Primeknit upper is largely made from carbon black threads, interspersed with a dark blue tone to add some texture. In the official photos, the new colorway seemed somewhat monotone due to artificial lighting, but seeing them in person is a real treat. The sun was not shining too brightly when we took our photos, so the silhouette came out perfectly and really showcased how the inner blue color pops in direct sunlight. Next, the flexible knit upper is protected by matte black cages and heel cups, the latter of which are 3D-printed- a new standard for the Ultra Boost family. Finally, Parley and adidas finish off their latest sneaker with a clean white Boost midsole, a feature that appears in all of their designs.
The latest entry in the Parley line of Ultra Boost is very similar to past iterations of the sneaker. Due to the materials used, the fit is slightly tighter than most are expecting, so going up a half size is highly recommended. Other than that, the adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 has been an excellent succession in the silhouette’s expanding line. The new knit pattern provides more flexibility than last year’s 3.0, as well as a more breathable fit.
