For a product that started as a football boot on pitch, the ACE 16+ series finds itself along way from home. When the Purecontrol was launched in January 2016, few could have guessed it would be transformed into a fashion piece collaborating with brands such as NYC lifestyle label Kith.

As mentioned, it's a long way from the its home of grass and white lines. But adidas have installed a social personality in their versatile shoe, equipping it with an UltraBOOST makeover and attitude that has established it as a stand alone product in fashion and lifestyle circles. Taking the ACE 16+ Purecontrol UltraBOOST into further new ground, adidas have collaborated with KITH to create a limited edition "Pale Pink" drop, set to land later this spring.

Some description

The collaborative creation will be limited to just 500 pairs globally. Impressive progress for what began life as a football boot; to develop into a limited edition lifestyle shoe that can comfortably draw a crowd in an ultra-competitive sneaker market is no mean feat, and a status that many brands have try and failed to achieve time after time. The KITH x ACE 16+ Purecontrol UltraBOOST features co-branded heel tabs and a KITH branded Limited Collection box.
