This latest release as explained by Huang on an Instagram post, is not only a celebration of Chinese traditions with family but also friends. This sneaker represents the cultural exchange that he's experienced ever since he was a child thanks to his ability to introduce Chinese culture and values during this time to all communities.
The upper of the sneaker is covered in red which symbolizes good fortune and joy, while a white BOOST unit brings some contrast. A suede tongue has Eddie's Panda logo and adidas' Three Stripes co-branded in gold while the Chinese character for fortune, 福 (fu), appears in gold on the heel.
You can pick up the Eddie Huang x adidas Originals Ultraboost "CNY" at select retailers like Extra Butter via raffle and adidas shops for $200 on February 7.
Release Date: 2/7/19 (Thursday)
