Wales Bonner and adidas Originals recently unveiled their Spring/Summer 2022 collaboration, marking the fourth time that the London-based label and the sportswear giant have collaborated. The capsule incorporates influences from ‘70s and ‘80s photography and music in Burkina Faso across apparel and footwear.
The footwear element of the collection features two silhouettes, with Wales Bonner returning to the popular Samba silhouette and introducing the Country sneaker. The Samba is constructed from luxe materials, including suede overlays and detailing in a crocodile skin-style material. The sneaker arrives in either a red and white colorway, or a white and green design. Both options feature specially-designed laces that mix the shoe’s color palette.
For the Country, Wales Bonner and adidas Originals have gone for two more understated designs. The first sees the shoe constructed entirely in black, complete with suede Three Stripe branding and toe box, as well as gold detailing and black and white laces. The second colorway includes a tonal brown design, which is offset by hits of navy blue on the laces.
