Now that Ye has been removed from the picture, adidas will be ramping up its efforts with its other music artist collaborations this year, one of which is Beyoncé‘s IVY PARK partnership. The Queen had herself quite a successful year with the Three Stripes in 2022, and in 2023 she’s looking to keep her momentum strong with the release of a brand new silhouette: the adidas New IVY PARK Top Ten 2000.

The kicks are pieced together with archival tooling from the adidas Top Ten 2000 — one of the models that is associated with Kobe Bryant’s time with the German sportswear imprint — as well as futuristic design details. Its past-meets-future design features upper layers that are cooked up with curvy overlays that are made from leather and land on the forefoot as well as a crinkled, TPU heel piece that is made with a sultry suede. Tongues are borrowed from the classic adidas Samba and are debossed with IVY PARK branding, and these come accessorized with flecked laces. Zig-zagged sole units are blasted with bold shades of orange to represent IVY PARK’s signature accent hue.

Expect these to hit adidas as a CONFIRMED-exclusive on January 20.
