Absolutely, the partnership between adidas and Wales Bonner is one of the most powerful collaborations to grace our sneaker collections. The German powerhouse and coveted designer continue to dig into adidas' archive styles, merging classic sporting heritage with Wales Bonner’s signature tailoring and serving them right back into the fashion spotlight. The Samba model's comeback and its rising popularity? It’s safe to say that we can thank the dynamic duo for that.
Following on from the partnership first debuted in 2020, we see FW23 return with a four-pack of Sambas set to be in everyone’s wishlist. Injecting a fresh vibe into the archive style is this boldest pair in the collection, featuring a cheetah print faux pony hair that covers pretty much every angle. This Samba is set to make a statement, with the UK-based designer’s touch at the signature craft like stitchwork at the heel and also the iconic foldover leather tongue which remains intact. Inside blue wraps the lining adding a pop of cobalt colour to contrast against a wild upper.
