3.0 Trace Olive & Heel Counter Update

With the Tech Rust released just today, tomorrow comes another ultraBOOST drop featuring the 3.0 Trace Olive.

The colourway isn’t quite my cup of tea and it certainly won’t beat the 3.0 Trace Cargo or the 1.0 olive UltraBOOSTs. But leaked on-foot shots of the sneaker looks far more appealing, appearing darker in tone, almost like a chocolate colourway instead.

Interestingly, it’s releasing with a heel counter similar to the Tech Rust, which begs the question if adidas are rolling out all the other ultraBOOSTs supported by these new heel counters.

Also a seemingly reoccurring feature are the leather cages, showcasing premium materials adidas have been fitting on the UltraBOOSTs since the 1st April releases.

I wouldn’t quite favour adidas sticking to one heel counter for their next releases having seen 3 different ones already.

I suppose they’ll play around with the 3 different heel counters and fit it across the colourways accordingly. I still much prefer the heel counters seen on the 3.0 Trace cargo and 3.0 leather cage ultraBOOST LTD that came with a dimpled surface.

Check out the next post for some exciting releases that will be dropping on the second half of the year. Perhaps spot a trend or two on the heel counters that will be fitted in upcoming releases.

Stay tuned for more sneakertalk!
