Members at an Adidas gym were in for a surprise when a trolling Jeremy Lin in a fat suit and beard came in to give them the worst possible workout advice ever. Lin, along with Taiwanese celebrity Vanessa Wu, prove they can be the worst (and most entertaining) personal trainers you’ve ever seen.
After highlighting the sneaker in our preview of the forthcoming collection from Y-3′s spring/summer 2016, here we take a closer look at the all-white version of the Qasa High. The sneaker has been perfectly executed in pristine white for the upcoming season, draped in pure white from the bandage-style wrap to the EVA outsole. Luxurious leather hits at the toecap, heel panel and lace loops only underline the sneaker as a premium offering.
Frankly, this iteration of the Qasa High is one of the best executions of the all-white trend in recent memory, and for that reason is likely to sell out quickly. Y-3 has accordingly put the sneaker on pre-sale on its website, head over there to secure your pair now.
Y-3 gives the adidas EQT silhouette a premium makeover for the upcoming fall/winter season. Washed in dark colorways, an olive/black and an all-black, the popular running shoe gets the Yohji imprint. The olive colorway sees a suede make complemented by premium black leather, and orange Y-3 branding with the recognizable Three Stripes in the heel cage.
The all-black colorway is inconspicuous with premium leather construction.
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.
Touted as the greatest adidas running sneaker ever made, the Ultra Boost is an unrivaled mix of the brand’s minimalist sensibilities and technological achievement. Introduced in January before hitting retail outlets around the world a month later, the aforementioned silhouette has received nothing but praise over the last few months. Key features include a full-length Boost sole unit for exceptional energy return, a breathable Primeknit upper, a supportive heel counter, and a grippy rubber outsole. To test out its athletic and casual wearability, we recently took the Ultra Boost to the streets and tracks of Hong Kong, as seen in the Streetsnaps here.
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.
