adidas Originals and NOAH Reunite for Summer-Ready Collection
Combining juxtaposing nautical references and sports iconography.
Adidas and NOAH have reunited once again, this time for a summer-ready installment that brings together subtly juxtaposing nautical motifs with sports iconography.
The collection unites New York’s quintessential label with adidas’ classic archival looks in the form of footwear, apparel and accessories. In apparel, the collection sees a navy French terry hoodie, white cotton tee and co-branded socks and a matching white cotton workwear set that consists of painter pants and jacket. The collab also features a bevy of matching floral pieces including, shorts, track pants, a jacket and a cap, all in seasonal pastel shades.
NOAH’s explores the adidas archive by adding its own spin on its classic footwear silhouettes, the Probound and the Rod Laver Super. The Noah Probound features a white mesh upper, blue stripes, grey suede overlays and a navy and red heel tab. A co-branded tongue detailing rounds out the silhouette. On the other hand, the Noah Rod Laver Super features a rubber outsole that matches with suede and recycled plastic upper. Inverted color blocking on the left and right shoes brings forward Noah’s stylistic sensibility. The combination of navy and green hues and joint-branded shell details refer to the brand’s sustained relationship with the open waters.
The collection is set to globally release on June 17 online at NOAH and adidas and select retailers.
