When it comes to his collaborations with adidas, Craig Green keeps his followers on their toes. The British designer has teamed up with the Three Stripes many times across recent years — applying his unique approach to design to many of the brand’s footwear silhouettes. Their most recent project reimagined the Retropy line in sneaker and sandal form and is now joined by three more colorways of the SQUASH POLTA AKH.

The duo’s special take on the old squash sneaker first released in 2022 and is back with three more retro-inspired iterations. All three pairs once again leverage a mixed material build composed of a woven TPE upper and a suede mudguard while sporting co-branding at the tongue and lateral heel. In “Hazy Green,” its soft green is accompanied by hits of gray, yellow and blue, with a dark gum sole unit backing the look. From there, a “Dark Brown” version has been similarly paired with gray, yellow and even more blue while a black sole rests underneath. “Khaki” dresses the final pair as additional browns and the same rich blue hue chime in atop a dark gum sole.

At the time of writing, all three colorways of the Craig Green x adidas SQUASH POLTA AKH have released via select retailers and adidas regions such as Japan at a starting price of ¥38,500 JPY (approx. $244 USD). However, a complete global release has yet to occur and is expected to take place at some point in the weeks to come. Enjoy an official preview of the pairs above and stay tuned for updates regarding this project and Craig Green’s other adidas launches.
