atmos and adidas Originals are continuing a decade-long collaborative relationship with a two-shoe Superstar “G-SNK” collaboration. Marking a whopping ninth “G-SNK” Superstar offering and 14th “G-SNK” project in total between the German footwear brand and Japanese retailer, offerings include an off-white colorway dubbed the “G-SNK”, a black pair titled the “R-SNK” and a small capsule of matching apparel.
Each shoe’s upper is coated in a textured, hi-vis reflective snakeskin pattern. Both also use a smooth reflective material on the Three Stripe branding and eyestays, with the “R-SNK” upping the ante by way of extra reflective hits on the heel and throat. Colorblocking is mostly monochromatic: the “G-SNK” uses black on the heel, tongue badge and midfoot’s branded stamp, while the “R-SNK” opts to keep things entirely tonal with a full black build. Each is completed with a signature rubber toe cap and classic midsole.
Apparel consists of two T-shirts and one pair of shorts. One tee presents a classic Trefoil logo done up in a snakeskin print and equipped with fangs plus a reflective Three Stripe graphic on the rear collar. The other is designed by Japanese artist Kosuke Kawamura and offers an aggressively-posed snake graphic with text branding for a more serious look. Shorts offer a smaller version of the first tee’s graphic on the left leg and add a reflective Three Stripe graphic on the rear right leg.
The atmos x adidas Superstar “G-SNK” collection is set to release on the atmos webstore and at select atmos retail locations come July 17. Shoes are priced at ¥14,000 JPY (approximately $131 USD) each, with apparel ranging from ¥5,490 to ¥7,990 (approximately $51 USD to $75 USD).
