DESIGN BOOST: Adidas has tapped Belgian designer Kris Van Assche for its Collective Ultra Boost project that seeks out contributions from the fashion world for the Ultra Boost Sneaker model. Previous collaborations have included Stella McCartney and Junichi Abe.

Van Assche, who revealed the shelving of his own 10-year-old signature label in May due to “tough times for independent labels” and to focus on his role as creative head of Dior Homme, gives the third limited edition of the Ultra Boost his own design stamp with the Argyle pattern for which he is known.

The sneaker will be available in select Adidas stores from June 25, in classic navy blue, green and gray with a red sole or black, gray and white with a green sole and will retail at 250 euro, or $284 at current exchange rate.
