MUSIC & SHOE HISTORY

Music and shoes have more than a little shared history, they’re practically sole mates. The two industries have been inextricably laced together for decades, each channeling the mood of an era in their own respective ways. Consistently remaining icons of style, we look at how they’ve always been a step ahead of everyone else.

Adidas Ultra Boost

The Adidas Ultra Boost is a dancing pop star's match-made-in-heaven. Allowing the likes of Justin Bieber to bounce around the stage, putting his all into his live performances, these shoes are not only hip but also surprisingly practical. Comfortable and desirable, they can be worn with most outfits. As with most white trainers, make sure you keep them sparkly white.

2015 was definitely Bieber’s year. The release of the Canadian singer's acclaimed album Purpose, by Def Jam Recordings and School Boy Records, saw the young artist remerge as a force to be reckoned within the popshere. The week ending 19th November 2015 marked Biber’s sixth number one album and largest sales week, with 649,000 total sales in the US and 90,596 in the UK.

A constant throughout the journey? JB’s Adidas Ultra Boosts, of course. These classic kicks quickly became synonymous with the artist’s new, bad-boy image and, due to the exposure he gave them, Bieber’s trainers got noticed by a lot of people. This lead to mainstream popularity and, for this reason, the Ultra Boosts are one of our featured shoes for 2015.
