Adidas has teamed up with British designer Grace Wales Bonner to continue adidas’ line of collaborative Samba Sneakers. This marks the second shoe selection from Wales Bonner.
The shoe is made up of 2 classic styles. The first being the Samba, & second being the retro SL72 running shoe. The show proves itself to be very stylish and very much on brand with her designs. The shoes feature crochet-like detailing & hand-stitched accents on top of a black & white pair and with perforated raw cotton uppers on a white & green version.
The exaggerated tongue on the black & white calls back to the Samba heritage in Soccer, while the tongue on the white & green model looks more towards updated sportswear. The SL72 models feature satin, velvet and “antique leather accents that express Wales Bonner’s retro-minded style that she’s brought to drivers cardigans & track jackets. The pink & brown, as well as the beige & maroon sneakers are lined in satin and bring the shoes beyond the point of just a reissue.
