After releasing a one-two punch of blue and grey versions back in March, here White Mountaineering and adidas Originals team up again for a knockout punch with a Stan Smith Spring/Summer 2015. This iteration refers heavily to White Mountaineering’s existing aesthetic – or at the very least, its name – outfitting the classic tennis sneaker in all-white leather and mesh. Subtle touches such as patent leather through the toebox, blended ‘mountain’ branding on the tongue and insole, and a geometric print on the heel tab make this offering not only distinct, but collectible.
An irresistible chiller for the season, pick up this special iteration of the Stan Smith at White Mountaineering May 16, with a global release to select adidas Originals doors following on May 30.
Longtime friends adidas Originals and Japanese label NEIGHBORHOOD have released another sneaker to add to their extensive collaborative offerings. First seen back in February, this understated Pro Model is dressed in a premium leather Night Marine upper with a shell toe, vulcanised midsole and leather Three Stripe details. The traditional NEIGHBORHOOD pirate logo gets the Three Stripe treatment as well, and is featured on both back heels on this otherwise minimal style.
Check out the NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas Pro Model Night Marine collaboration above and keep an eye out for these at select adidas Originals retailers, available now for a price of $125 USD.

Japanese style purveyor UNITED ARROWS & SONS join forces with adidas Originals once again for a collaborative take on the ZX Flux running shoe. This time around, the two have reworked the simplistic runner with a traditional Japanese indigo dying-inspired gradient colorway.
The unique hue is based on the natural indigo dyed fabric produced by the Miyazaki-based Aulico workshop, which was then printed along the upper of the sneaker. A metallic blue heel cage and dark blue coloration for the Three Stripes and laces round out the design for the upper.
Priced at ¥14,040 JPY (approximately $118 USD) the UNITED ARROWS & SONS x adidas Originals ZX Flux “Indigo” will be available for purchase at UNITED ARROWS locations in early May.
adidas Originals‘ flagship store in Seoul marked the release of the highly anticipated 50 colorway Superstar “Supercolor” pack with special crowd-sourced art in the store’s Supercolor studio.

Staying true to the core inspiration behind this pack, adidas Originals’ Supercolor Studio displays a vibrant variety of style and expression while also connecting a range of individuals who share a similar passion. The Supercolor Studio set to remain open to the public until April 9 and also offers the chance to win a pair of Supercolors, so make sure to check it out if you’re in the area.
Japanese style purveyors BEAUTY & YOUTH join forces with adidas Originals for a fresh take on the iconic Superstar tracksuit. The bespoke-fit track jacket and pants feature a rich navy blue colorway, and contrasting brown accents along the stripes and branding.

As part of the ongoing anniversary celebration of the Superstar silhouette, adidas Originals has commissioned frequent Three Stripes collaborator Yohji Yamamoto to offer his own unique take on the classic shoe. Yamamoto’s iteration is definitely one of the most unorthodox that we have seen, featuring a bold metallic leather upper in vibrant red and blue, contrasted by a white midsole, heel pad and Shell Toe. Finishing touches include blue waxed laces and Yamamoto’s signature branding on either side.
The Yohji Yamamoto x adidas Originals Superstar “Metallic” will carry a price tag of $380 USD and will be available at select adidas stockists in the coming weeks.

The mostly neutral color palette is offset with a vibrant yellow interior, completing a clean and comfortable sneaker that will complement your summer wardrobe perfectly.
