Nice Kicks Debuts Its adidas UltraBOOST “No Vacancy” and Reflects on Its Collaborative Tie-Dye Legacy
Nice Kicks and adidas have been teaming up to tie-dye since 2016. The duo has come up with four striking tie-dye sneakers that resonate with everything ranging from Nice Kicks’ Bay Area roots to Woodstock and the joys of heading back outside in the summer. Now, they have a fifth and final tie-dye sneaker on the way — the Nice Kicks x adidas UltraBOOST “No Vacancy,” a sneaker that encompasses the entirety of the two’s partnership by replicating the tie-dye pattern used on its very first release.
This started with the Nice Kicks x adidas NMD R1, a red and black tie-dye style inspired from San Francisco’s Haight Street and provided inspiration for the above-mentioned UltraBOOST. It was followed up four years later, with 2019’s Nice Kicks x adidas UltraBOOST “Woodstock” and a black-based version of the “Woodstock” dubbed “Encore” later in the same year. In 2020, the partnership took a leap into the future with the Nice Kicks x adidas Ultra4D “Have a Nice Day,” which was designed to “put a positive spin on the practice of social distancing.” 2021’s Nice Kicks x adidas Ultra BOOST “No Vacancy” is the final piece in this tie-dyed puzzle.
Apart from completing the proverbial tie-dye circle by nodding to the two’s very first collaboration, the “No Vacancy” tells a story that’s entirely its own. Aiming to encapsulate the feeling of taking a road trip with friends — a classic American pastime — it’s accompanied by a detailed lookbook shot at a historic house in Palm Springs, CA and accompanied by an extensive collection of apparel. The red and black tie-dye look, co-branded tongues and white BOOST midsole will surely be familiar to any Nice Kicks fan, but the “No Vacancy” adds some unique flair with a gum outsole as well.
The pair is due to release on the 9th of July at the Nice Kicks webstore.
