adidas is scheduled to add another tally to its growing roster of movie character collaborations come Spring 2020: Bond, James Bond. Daniel Craig will portray Ian Fleming’s fictional intelligence officer once more in April’s “No Time To Die” film and the Ultra Boost 20 will help the Three Stripes celebrate the occasion. The already-sleek runner is getting an even sharper look by way of subtle, but clever embellishments. Using a triple-black base, this commemorative pair features silver embroidery around the forefoot done similarly to adidas’ upcoming “Multi-Colored” UB 20 pack. A similar grey hue appears around Three Stripes branding on the cages and speckles on the BOOST-midsole, as well as on the supportive mold and “007” text printed at the heel. This UB 20 keeps its signature Primeknit upper, but the pattern around the heel and tongue resemble a carbon fiber-styling, perhaps as a nod to the Aston Martin DB5’s – first appearing in 1964’s “Goldfinger” – new lightweight build in the upcoming spy movie. Rounding out the dapper design, branding at the tongue has been switched out with a graphic depicting the gunbarrel sequence that plays at the start of every 007 film.
The adidas Ultra Boost 2020 made its debut in late 2019 and with the silhouette just beginning to spread his wings, we can expect to see a lot of it in 2020. One of the colorways that will kick off 2020 is showcased above as the silhouette from the three stripes begins with a white Primeknit material covering the upper which is then hit with grey embroidered three stripes branding on the side panels. A unique feature on this pair is the black and white paint splattered heel with an orange heel counter while a white Boost midosle and a black Continental rubber outsole finish things off.
