SANKUANZ and adidas Originals are coming back as a team stronger than ever with their latest collaboration, which features three streetball sneakers comprising an EQT Solution, Forum, and Rivalry Pro Model.
These three pairs follow on from SANKUANZ and adidas Originals’ previous collaboration, which saw the two come together on a basketball-inspired collection. This time around, the sporting inspiration is continued but takes to the streets, delivering streetball iterations of the aforementioned shoes.
First up is the Solution Streetball, a riff on the EQT Solution that’s now been reworked with SANKUANZ’s signature design tropes. For example, the upper features purple ripstop that fades into a bright green, as well as a champagne white-colored synthetic material that’s been used for the padded tongue. Joining this is a duo of black leather tongue tabs, one sporting adidas’ moniker, and the other SANKUANZ’s on the shoe’s respective tongue — as there are two.
White leather has been used to cut through the shoe’s mid-panels, while rubberized gelly-like segments appear all around. In addition to this is the Streetball Forum, a pair that sports a predominantly white leather upper intersected with black leather at the heel and camouflaged Three Stripes.
The Forum sits atop a chunky, sculpted sole unit that features more of SANKUANZ’s signature colors, and is also finished with doubled-up tongues each sporting the collaborative branding.
Rounding out the trio is the Rivalry Pro Model, a pair that combines a Rivalry Hi with the elements of an adidas Originals Superstar. As a result, the all-white-leather pair sports a cream-toned shell toe at the front, Superstar-like Three Stripes and mid-panel perforations, and tongue printing too. The Rivalry Pro Model also sits on a full-length BOOST sole unit that’s secured in place with a black and green rubber bumper at the rear.
All three SANKUANZ x adidas Originals sneakers are set to release at retailers worldwide, such as sneakers76, on October 10. Pricing ranges from approximately $235 USD to $295 USD.
