Minimalist and elegant design when there is light
Love how outstanding the Three Stripe are!
In the day, the shoes look pretty minimalist in plain white and grey together with the green luminescence stripes. A more prominent strip of grey wraps around the toebox to give the shoe more durability and styling. Interestingly, translucent, colourless plastic is used for the construction of the midfoot cages and UltraBoost branded heel clips. The iconic Three Stripe graphics are of course added with some bright neon to give them more visibility during day time.
Once darkness sets in...
It glows in the dark!
The midsoles of UltraBoost 5.0 "Glow" are made from full-fledged Boost and the outsoles are constructed from Continental rubber that will surely give you that added insulation and shock absorption when you hot the tarmac. A lone Adidas logo adorns the knit tongue to complete the package and give it its dashing look.
