Just yesterday, adidas officially unveiled the new Pure Boost running model and all its foam-based goodness. As adidas continues to push the envelope with its signature Boost midsole, could this cushioning technology make its way onto a basketball sneaker?
Kanye West's longtime friend and fellow designer, Ibn Jasper, recently posted a photo of the Pure Boost on his Instagram with a caption that reveals the existence of a basketball sneaker equipped with Boost tech. Jasper wrote, "New Adidas #BOOST Technology ... They showed us the Basketball joints in Germany ... 2015 is gonna be the start of a New Era for Adidas #StayTuned."
While adidas hasn't confirmed a Pure Boost basketball sneaker, it's likely that Jasper was shown a sample at the adidas world headquarters or at the Global Brand Conference—both in Germany. He even mentioned 2015 on his Instagram post, which has been speculated as the release year for the Kanye x adidas collection. We seriously can't wait to see what's in store for the Three Stripes in the coming months.
