These adidas Ultraboost Shoes Can Be Customized With Actual LEGO Bricks

Last September, adidas and LEGO kicked off their ongoing collaboration with a pair of ZX 8000 runners done up in bright primary colors and accented by subtle stud detailing. At the time of their release, they made quite the splash in the sneaker world, selling out almost immediately and quickly fetching more than double their price on the secondhand market.

For the latest installment of its co-branded LEGO collection, adidas has overhauled the Ultraboost with a decidedly brick-heavy design. In practice this means that, in addition to a studded toebox overlay, the shoes also sport a set of 3-Stripes rendered in LEGO plates, allowing builders to customize them according to their preferences. Elsewhere, you’ll find even more brick-inspired elements, with both the sockliners and the outsole rubber designed to look like an array of studs. While feet and LEGOs typically don’t mix, the combination of a bouncy Boost midsole and a plush Primeknit upper means that these shoes are an exception to the rule. They’re available now for $200.
