adidas Ultra Boost “Bird’s Nest” Inspired by 2008 Beijing Olympic Stadium

Designer KXIV has created an very unique adidas Ultra Boost dubbed, “Bird’s Nest” that’s inspired by the 2008 Beijing Olympic Stadium and Aquatics Center. This is a follow-up to his exclusive Air Jordan 11 “Thai Architecture” he did back in 2014.

For 2017, he’s back with his own take on the adidas Ultra Boost that draws inspiration of the “Bird’s Nest” to the Beijing national aquatics centre, the seemingly erratic textured upper part along with a structurally systematic lacing system sit on the bubble-like form and function of the Ultra Boost sole.

The lacing system designed by KXIV consists of two continuous laces that look around support points along the upper part of the shoe and around its heel. The lock is a 3D-printed double-loop cinch that keeps the laces in place, along the heel is another lace-lock that keeps the whole network from sliding. The textured skin beneath adds a second layer to the design, exposing the structural lacing that is an abrasive-resistant polyurethane fused to a lycra base. the upper lace layer was lasted and baked at 300 degrees to hold its form in place while still providing the elasticity of the lycra.
