Back in September, we got a closer look at Jonah Hill and adidas Originals‘ Samba collaboration which brought two pairs in “Green Night” and “Maroon,” and now the full collaborative collection and another pair of Sambas have surfaced ahead of the global release.
Kicking things off is Jonah Hill’s latest take on the Samba sneaker, this time around coming in “Craft Ochre/Tech Copper/Ecru Tint.” Like the previously seen pairs, this Samba draws from the multihyphenate’s experiences of growing up in the 1990s, tapping skateboarding culture and childhood influences. The result is a pair made from premium leather with suede panels overlaying areas such as the toe, eyestay placket, and heel. Suede has also been used for the OG zig-zag Three Stripes, while “Craft Ochre” stitching on the heel and the unique hand-scrawled Samba moniker add a nonconformist edge to the sneaker.
Jonah Hill’s initials grace the heel tab also in the yellow-toned stitching, while a tiger’s head in yellow has been added to the leather-lined insole. Rounding out the pair is its debossed adidas branding on the tongue and the orange-hued gum sole unit.
Joining the three sneakers that are set to release later this month is the never-before-seen capsule collection comprising puffer jackets, chino trousers, and sports shorts. The capsule is colored in “Noble Maroon,” “Tech Copper,” and “Mineral Green” to offer wearers a full monochrome outfit when paired with the aforementioned Sambas.
Puffer jackets are minimally branded, only delivering a hand-drawn interpretation of adidas’ Trefoil logo on the chest alongside tonal Three Stripes that run the length of the arms and up to the shoulders. The chinos and shorts are also finished with the same tonal branding, with the motif appearing near the left-side pocket on the trousers and on the cuff on the mesh shorts.
Jonah Hill’s three Sambas are set to release on adidas’ app and at select retailers like HBX starting November 14, while the clothing collection will drop on the adidas website. The Sambas are priced at $170 AUD (approx. $123 USD), while the capsule collection ranges from $90 AUD to $320 AUD (approx. $65 USD — $230 USD).
