What do you think of the new Ultra Boost 4.0 design?

A closer look at the Ultra Boost 4.0

This is the closest we will ever get to a 1.0 design as I don't think ADIDAS plans to go back the OG.

However, I have say that if the 4.0 design is truly as it is in the picture above, it is a definitely a step forward from the 3.0. The 3.0 with its "cum cage" was a hype killer, even till now as some colorways are still sitting in stores. The 3.0 has an arrowhead primeknit design, similar to the 1.0.

One big thing that also changed, was the removal of the 3.0 translucent cage, which was a bad design decision by ADIDAS. It was not aesthetically pleasing and did not match the overall look and style of an Ultra Boost. The return of a solid colored TPU cage will probably be well-received by the fans.

So what do you think of the new 4.0? Do you think it will rekindle the hype?
