Multihyphenate Donald Glover slaps his take on three classic adidas styles: the Nizza, the Continental 80, and the Lacombe. Taking the idea of how your shoes tell the stories, of how the wealth of history can be derived from experiences. Forget keeping your kicks in pristine order, you're given permission to put your footwear through life's trials and tribulations; a well-worn pair of shoes is far more interesting than box fresh.
Called Donald Glover Presents, these templates are tone-on-tone white canvases with deconstructed details—uneven stitching, inside-out golden eyestays; the canvas edges are not stitched down, allowing them to fray over time. The heel bumpers and insoles have the image of a moth, the symbol of the collaboration. To further the 'wear-til-worn' idea, each pair is accompanied with custom shoelaces designed to fringe with constant wearing and come in an inside-out adidas Originals box that opens with a tear strip.
To commemorate the release, Glover releases a series of short films that you can check out below:
