After nearly eight months since the announcement last year, Donald Glover and the three-stripe powerhouse Adidas have finally released their collaborative collection.
The ‘Donald Glover Presents’ project is a series of tweaked Adidas Originals – the Continental 80, the Nizza, and the Lacombe.
The kicks feature a purposely weathered look with cream-coloured canvases, alongside a ‘frayed-at-the-edges treatment’ to make them feel like they’ve been ‘worn, loved, and put through the wringer already’, as reported by Esquire.
“With this project, I wanted to encourage people to think about how their stories can be told on their feet. Value isn’t quantified by what you wear, rather the experiences from them,” Glover quoted in a statement.
Adidas Originals Senior Design Director Chris Law was keen to highlight the appreciation for how shoes evolve with wear, expressing more personality over time. “Between Glover’s artistic vision and our expertise, we will continue to evolve and look forward to where that takes us.”
