The first UltraBOOST launched in the early 2015 and quickly became an icon of the high-performance functionality and meticulous craftsmanship. The UltraBOOST Collective was created later that year as a platform for some of the most illustrious brands and designers from around the world to create their own unique take on the silhouette. For Fall/Winter 18, the UltraBOOST Collective released Munich’s A Kind of Guise (AKOG), Japan’s Engineered Garments, and Paris-based Études. The Collective now brings you Brooklyn/Tokyo-based Kinfolk.
Kinfolk first came together back in 2008, when friends drawn to each other from New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo, had a desire to create products and experiences that captured their shared interests and sensibilities, transcending any geographical distance. As they enter their second decade together, they continue to develop their concept of ‘a Kinfolk life’. Best known internationally for a meticulously-curated street wear selection, Kinfolk also apply their combined creativity to multidisciplinary spaces in Brooklyn and Tokyo.
This UltraBOOST collaboration features shades of blue on a two-tone Primeknit upper with butter-soft nubuck leather on the mudguard and heel cage giving this performance silhouette a premium lifestyle feel. Speckled laces and small red accents/Kinfolk branding on the tongue complete the aesthetic. The Kinfolk UltraBOOST strikes a balance between contemporary elegance and futuristic technology.
