While a Prince Albert piercing might sound daunting, the sneakers are actually quite understated. Served in either “Cloud White” or “Core Black,” the pairs sport a premium leather upper that’s beautifully tumbled and supple, giving the shoes a fitting retro feel.
Details such as the “Campus” stamp is debossed into the leather in tonal letters, while tongue branding is equally minimal, appearing in cream on the white pair or black on the other. However, switching things up on 032c’s Campus is its “Prince Albert” component — a piercing that runs through two silky cotton threads on the eyestay placket at the top near the tongue. This dangling piece of jewelry is served in a silver-tone on both colorways. 032c’s signature red branding adorns a rubber heel tab, which rounds out each shoe.
Joining the Campus is a seven-piece capsule collection comprising a pair of adibreak track pants, a T-shirt, a tank top, a cap, a backpack, a duffle bag, and a multi-strap sling. The bags and sling take on a cream colorway with white details, and are indebted by a tech-forward aesthetic thanks to the multitude of staps, buckles, and compartments found on each.
For the T-shirt, tank top, and cap, 032c has added a melted-effect green logo to the front of each piece while a co-branded tab can be found on the inside. A similar piece of dual-branding is added to the bottom right-hand corner of the T-shirt and tank. Rounding out the capsule is the pair of track pants that once more feature the melted logo on the legs alongside a full length of poppers and a collection of other patches, noting things such as adidas and 032c’s monikers.
032c’s adidas Originals collection is set to drop on November 12 globally on adidas’ website, 032c’s website and at select retailers like HBX. The Campus “Prince Albert” sneakers cost £109.95 GBP a pair (approx. $144 USD). Check out the full collection in the galleries above.
