The Drawings Pack was inspired by using different artistic styles to re-interpret the characteristics of each classic silhouette. The pack explores the way that various artistic techniques can be utilised to create varied and highly differentiated, stylistic looks. Different techniques explored within the pack include ink, print, crosshatching and silver etching. Familiar footwear with a leftfield revision, these are a fearless shock-to-the-system that celebrates these definitive creations perfectly.

Superstar
The Superstar Vintage needs little introduction, still amassing appeal after nearly 40 years, and this slim, smoother shelled, low-profile favourite carries a fragmented silver etching effect on a matt-effect leather, illustrating, rather than stitching the 3-Stripes for a more streamlined appearance, and distressing the legendary ‘SUPERSTAR’ lettering.

Stan Smith
Intelligently bridging the gap between the Stan Smith Vintage’s much-loved minimalism and heavy detailing, a subtle mix of black and brown on the upper is complmented by a handicraft style, multicoloured embroidery around the trademark perforations and a white paint effect print on the stitching and eyelets to exaggerate this element, making for a distinctive reinterpretation of this bestseller.

Samba
Pared down to a ‘one piece’ look, every well-known detail of the legendary Samba training shoe has been rendered in a ‘sketched’ crosshatched pen and ink print on an off-white leather, down to the forked forefoot panel, tongue branding, embossed lettering and sockliner.

Nizza
Since its 70s introduction, the Nizza has crossed cultures, reflecting ensuing eras and absorbing a plethora of legendary looks. For this mid-cut, vulcanized addition to the pack, the familiar canvas upper becomes an artist’s canvas of bold ‘pop art’, depicting each panel and 3-Stripes in strong shades, with corresponding metal eyelets, red foxing and an appropriately illustrated sockliner.

Forum
The most recent design in the five-two 3 range gets stripped down to bare basics without any compromise, with a pared-down white upper, decorated with a black brushstroke look that incorporates every last detail of this hi-top early 80’s court titan. Even the toebox perforations and sockliner are re-applied for a look that marries abstraction with timeless technical basketball prowess.

Superstar Track Top
This version of the Superstar track top, one of the most distinctive adidas heritage apparel pieces, coordinates perfectly with the Drawings pack’s ‘illustrated’ Samba, in off-white with printed cross-hatch style imagery rendered in an intricate print on the sleeves and side panels. Completed with a hand-drawn effect Trefoil on the chest, it works perfectly alongside the corresponding footwear or as a stylish standalone everyday wear.
