The Adidas Ultra Boost is one of the most talked about sneakers of the year. While the popular shoe is offered in a variety of colorways, Chinese artist Lee Chun has given the sneaker an exciting makeover.

Chun has rendered the Adidas Ultra Boost in three ceramic models. The first iteration is a gold-dipped creation that celebrates the Taipei marathon and features the recognizable silhouette coated in a gilded metallic finish. Chun then goes on to include a second iteration, which features the Ultra Boost finished in white ceramic with hand-painted gold accents on the midfoot and toe box. The last rendition is the most feminine of them all and showcases a pastel palette with ornamental detailing coated throughout the upper.

While these models cannot be worn, each refashioned shoe is aesthetically pleasing.
