Designer, Alexander Wang has paired up with adidas Originals for a third time – good news for all.
In previous capsules, Wang has reworked some adidas classics, putting his own touch on the iconic three-stripes – usually putting their logo upside down, too. That’s one of many things going on here, as Wang and adidas give an answer to the current trend for chunky shoes and in doing so, remix a classic football shoe from the brand’s history.
The Samba is synonymous with indoor football and small-sided games, with what has become a quintessential adidas design. The white stripes on the black leather with the gum sole is a truly timeless look that they reproduce over and over again through the Samba and the Gazelle series.
However, here we see the classic design of the Samba on an all-new AW Bball Soccer silhouette on top of a BOOST midsole. Coming in both a classic black and a much louder red, Alexander Wang detailing such as the upside down embroidery on the tongue, make these a standout piece of a collection that also includes track jackets, crewnecks, tees, shorts, and even a poncho.
A unique shoe for sure, the AW Bball Soccer shoes are set to release at adidas Originals and Alexander Wang flagship locations, adidas.com, alexanderwang.com, and select retailers all over the world from Saturday, April 21.
