Nike isn’t the only brand that can produce tens of collaborations every year. At adidas, they have a long and ever-increasing list of partners that they like to keep close. What Nike has with Supreme, adidas has with Bape. Matthew M. Williams plus Nike? Raf Simons plus adidas. Drake-Nike? Pharrell-adidas.
adidas x NiceKicks ultraBoost „Woodstock“
Let’s start with a colorful sneaker. The sneaker website Nice Kicks got the chance to give the ultraBoost silhouette a makeover, and used a tie-dye, rainbow print. This is hands-down one of the better things to come from adidas.
adidas x Alexander Wang Puff Trainer
The relationship between Herzogenaurach and New York has a long history with its ups and downs, and last season was definitely an interesting point, because these puffer trainers are certainly out of this world.
adidas x BAPE ultraBoost 4.0 „Green Camo“
The popular Japanese brand A Bathing Ape is a frequent collaborator of the three stripes, be it a lifestyle, basketball or football sneaker. Their collaborations receive universal acclaim.
adidas x Human Made NMD Hu
Do you know what the above mentioned Bape and Human Made have in common? The owner, the legendary Nigo, one of the fathers of streetwear. Their collaboration on Pharrell’s model NMD Hu is excellent.
adidas x Prada Superstar
Although the collaboration could have been much more original, Prada and adidas will probably repeat this collaboration this or the next year. Hopefully, the Milan-based designers will have a bit more space to work with next time.
