adidas Originals’ new launch confirms what we’ve all suspected; snakeskin print is the new leopard print.
The brand is releasing two different packs in very limited quantities, so get ready to make a mad dash for one of these babies in their limited edition packaging.
The first pack is a 90s-inspired collection. It features the Yung 1 shoe, LXCON 94 model and the latest addition to the adidas Originals catalogue, the SUPERCOURT RX sneaker. All 3 designs are giving us major ‘dad shoes’ vibes with their chunky soles and neutral tones, a trend that‘s still going strong this season. Additionally, the sneakers have been updated with premium Italian leather with snakeskin patterns for a new dimension to the style.
The Yung 1 silhouette has an upper and all-over snakeskin pattern, two-tone tape 3-Stripes mark and a plush fabric lining. The chunky retro runners also feature a dynamic midsole tooling for high functionality.
Next, the LXCON 94 model. It is a classic ‘90s running shoe design that boasts all-over snakeskin leather panels with contrast textile underlays and the 3-Stripes mark.
Finally, the SUPERCOURT RX shoe, which pays tribute to adidas’ enduring 40-year legacy in tennis and court styles. In other words, it’s a distillation of all the best design elements of adidas’ court shoes. The shoes comprise of an all-over snakeskin leather with a classic Trefoil logo window. The print is offset by a split white midsole which is connected by a tan contrast midfoot segment.
All the shoes are finished with essential branding details and contrasting red and blue sock liners.
The second pack features four of adidas’ headline models: the Stan Smith sneaker, Continental 80 model, Falcon W silhouette and adilette slide. The shoes in this pack are made from premium Italian Pellegrini leather but with a grey snakeskin motif treatment this time around.
The Stan Smith model, arguably one of the most worn sneakers, gets an all-over snakeskin pattern redesign in this drop. It is accompanied by a grey heel tab and tongue, and placed atop a classic white cupsole.
The Continental 80 shoes have gained popularity in recent years due to its similarity to the YEEZY Powerphase sneaker. However, this rendition is a rather unique look, with its all-over grey snakeskin pattern. It is contrasted by grey heel tab and lace panel, signature two-tone grey and white stripe accent, and a white midsole and off-white outsole.
The Falcon W model features a snakeskin upper, offset by grey leather overlays and reflective elements, and rounded off with some aggressive midsole tooling.
Finally, the adilette slide model, which contrasts a simple white midsole with a snakeskin upper. And of course, it is finished with a contrast grey 3-Stripes mark and an off-white outsole.
As an added bonus, the shoes have a special lime green inlay with a unique graphic, as well as alternative lime green laces; the perfect amount of pop of colour amidst the grey!
The Yung 1 shoe, LXCON 94 model and SUPERCOURT RX silhouette are available at adidas.com.sg and adidas Originals at Pacific Plaza in limited quantities.
The Stan Smith sneaker, Continental 80 shoe, Falcon W model and adilette slide release at adidas.com.sg and adidas stores at Pacific Plaza, Bugis+ and VivoCity on 16 August 2019.
