These shoes are very collectable shoes. If you like, you must buy them.
Unique American designer Alexander Wang and adidas have enjoyed a long-running and fruitful collaborative partnership, and now their fourth collection is set to drop for the Fall/Winter 2018 season. The two’s latest efforts re-contextualize and repurpose pieces from past seasons of Wang’s adidas collections for a look that’s directly in-line with the designer’s subversive style. This season, Wang has called upon an interesting “photocopy” process that’s slightly skewed and off-kilter, giving each piece an intentionally “imperfect” look with details like upside-down logos, rough-hewn seams and more — all while still nodding to classic adidas styling/branding.
The AW Super Skate is combined with an adidas Superstar for a unique hybrid look, the Puff Trainer is styled as if it was a warm winter puffer jacket for your feet, and the AW Futureshell takes classic adidas basketball DNA — think Kobe Bryant’s unique adidas Kobe 1s and 2s — and merges it with an alternate retro-inspired silhouette. The shoes are also accompanied by a wide swath of special co-branded apparel, and the entire collection is set to release November 14th, so check out a list of retailers below for your best chance at securing a pair or two.
