First seen on the Fall/Winter 2020 runway, HYKE has finally prepped its latest expansive adidas collaboration for release. Like their previous partnerships, the duo have executed layering pieces and footwear in HYKE’s signature shades of white, black and olive green, updating some timeless adidas footwear to go along with the winter wearables.
A plethora of reworked footwear is on hand to anchor the branded garments, ranging from the FYW XTA shoe (seen here with a BOA lacing system) to HYKE’s covetable SeeULater, once again issued in both high and low versions that sport sleek tonal colorways. Elsewhere, breathable FYW sandal styles are updated for cold weather with removable fuzzy insoles.
Like the footwear, HYKE’s take on adidas apparel is quietly technical and offered in that inimitable color palette. The graphic pullover is a clear standout, contrasting bold adidas branding against splashes of contrasting white or black, depending on the item’s color, with matching skirts to finish the look. Of course, the skirts are also issued in tonal options, complemented by likeminded leggings and technical outerwear. These include HYKE’s preferred bolero jacket and a host of oversized parkas, all finished with adidas branding and weather resistant shells.
Finally, HYKE underscored the climbing influence that plays throughout this collection with a special video that showcases champion climber Miho Nonaka in action. Nonaka, a longtime fan of HYKE’s minimalist wares, demonstrates the versatility of the collaborators’ new sneakers and apparel, taking to a climbing wall with the paint-splattered pullover, skirt and leggings, plus a few pairs of shoes.
adidas Originals’ Japanese web store and domestic outposts will host the HYKE collaboration on November 25. HYKE’s adidas partnership will then launch in America on December 2, ranging in price from $150 USD to $500 USD.
Most recently, adidas Originals took to the trails with Footshop’s Superstar “Blueprinting.”
