Late December adidas released a slew of UltraBOOST 3.0 silhouettes. One of those released during that month happened to be the special edition adidas UltraBOOST 3.0 "Chinese New Year." In two weeks, the biggest holiday in China will kick off, and adidas decided to celebrate the Year of the Rooster with this surprise.
The limited edition shoe features a full multicolor Primeknit upper in a marled red, heather black accents along the ankle and toe box, a black cage overlay and heel counter, multicolor laces and a full BOOST midsole with a black Continental rubber outsole. A special “CNY” logo patch appears on the tongue to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
We love the improvements the 3.0s contain which include a new cage structure, providing improvements in the areas of fit, support and breathability. At first glance, immediately you know this is a special shoe, just from the packaging. A special edition box with an embossed "CNY" on the top and around the corners. Not only does the box come with the embossing but you also get a black and white themed, Chinese style drawing around the lower levels of the box. Inside you get a special wrapping paper that is white on white, but is covered with the same Chinese style drawings. The CNY contains all of the new elements that we come to enjoy from the 3.0 along with a banging colorway that has yet to be seen on the 3.0. On the feet with the right "fit" this is a can't lose silhouette and because I am in China, it makes this limited edition UltraBOOST even sweeter.
