Extra Butter and adidas Originals will come together for a special iteration of the Ultra Boost 1.0 that celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the film, Happy Gilmore.
Inspiration for this adidas Ultra Boost comes from the ‘Gold Jacket’ given to the winner at the Pro Gold Tour. Shooter McGavin (played by Christopher McDonald) was an extremely arrogant golfer whose main goal was to win the gold jacket at the Pro Golf Tour. Shooter proved that he would do anything to win, even cheat and pretend to be friends with his caddy, Donald, so that he would help Shooter cheat. When Happy Gilmore won the tournament, Shooter went into a fit of envious rage and stole Happy’s Golden Jacket, only to be chased and beaten up by Happy’s old boss, Mr. Larson.
Looking closer, the pair comes highlighted with Golden Yellow Primeknit on the upper while suede lands on the overlays. Next, White hits the laces, lace cage, and Boost midsole. Sticking out, we have Shooter McGavin’s signature finger gun on the lateral side. Finally, a Gum rubber outsole finishes the look.

Update 6/17: Extra Butter will connect with adidas to release a limited edition collection for the 25th anniversary of the movie, Happy Gilmore. Included in the collection are shoes inspired by the movie’s three main characters, Chubbs (ZG 21 Chubbs “Cream White”), Shooter (Ultra Boost Shooter), and Happy (Adilette Boost Happy).
“25 years ago, a fictional character named Happy Gilmore broke the mold on what it meant to be a golfer, and we wanted to celebrate that with a unique collaboration and collection,” says Extra Butter co-founder and CEO, Ankur Amin. “Golf is growing exponentially amongst every demographic. Golfers today are more diverse and the game is more inclusive than ever before. Golf is getting younger and breaking away from its “dad’s game” reputation as youth culture starts to embrace the sport. We wanted to be a part of this shift, bring our style to the sport, and have fun with this project.”
You can expect the Extra Butter x adidas ‘Happy Gilmore’ collection to release Friday, June 25th, exclusively at ExtraButterny.com and Extra Butter locations.
