A Closer Look at The adidas Originals by Wales Bonner FW21 Footwear
Ahead of its release later this week.
Grace Wales Bonner and adidas Originals have offered up a closer look at the collaborative footwear that formed an integral part of the former’s “Black Sunlight” Fall/Winter 2021 collection, ahead of its official release later this week.
Teased initially in the unveiling of the apparel through a Tyler Mitchell-shot lookbook towards the end of last year, the duo have honed in on the adidas Japan silhouette to rework it in four distinctive colorways.
“Dark Marine/Easy Yellow/Cream White” and “Hazy Yellow/Brown/Dark Brown” both adorn a WB Japan sneaker with uppers composed of nylon and plush leather stripes, while a “Cream White/Easy Yellow/Dark Brown” iteration houses a crocheted tongue and moccasin border stitching, alongside a predominantly suede “Dark Brown/Collegiate Burgundy/Easy Yellow” variation.
“Black Sunlight” concludes a trilogy of Wales Bonner collections which illuminate a world of Caribbean Thought and Black British intellectualism and draws on inspiration from the diasporic radical thinkers of the 1980s.
The adidas Originals by Wales Bonner FW21 footwear is set to drop on February 18 and will be available via the adidas webstore. Pairs are also available via GOAT right now in case you missed out.
