These are my first ever Ultra Boost custom, and I'm very happy with the outcome. These are made of a Missoni pillow and vegetable tanned leather. Details include Hand painted stripes and etching in the quarter panels, piping, and tongue cut outs with hand painted ++ branding. This pair was made for a client, but please contact me through the Custom Orders
page to place an order for your own Ultra Boosts.

Getting the soles ready... I added a leather rim instead of reusing the stock plastic piece
Ready for lasting...
And the finished product:
