Recently, the ‘Atlanta’ star, Donald Glover partnered with Adidas to release a new shoe collection. While the collaboration was announced in September 2018, the products under this collection are available in the GCC for sale from April 26th 2019. According to Glover, the aim of the project is to ‘encourage people to think about how their stories can be told on their feet’. The price range of the products is reported to be between $80 to $100.
The collection showcases three classic Adidas shoe styles, namely, the Nizza, the Continental 80, and the Lacombe. Jemuel Wong, an Adidas enthusiast revealed the physical interpretation of the Nizza. He highlighted that the shoe will feature a distressed canvas upper, striped canvas laces, metal eyelets, a ridged rubber toe bumper, and leather heel pull-tab. He also stated the appearance of dual logo along the insoles on the shoes. The second part of the Donald Glover x Adidas Originals, however, is a series of short films starring Donald and Mo’Nique.
