adidas Originals Drop Two New Sobakov Colourways

For those attached to the Predator precision, you'll feel an instant warming to the Sobakov and while it is deep rooted in football, the design, which hops neatly between top end style and almost skate-scene brutalism is solely for the here and now. The latest drops see the shoe take on new life thanks to the “Sesame” and “Black/Pink" makeovers.

Extended beyond the upper, the colour change extends to the sole. While the gum texture remains, the respective soles move into tonal places. For the upper of the "Sesame" edition, the weaving three stripes match the all over colour of the shoe while the counterpart "Black" version of the shoe is given a pop of pink. The colour to be worn right now, it's an unquestionably strong combination that will bounce off the black base just as much as it will the concrete curb.

A warming style and substance approach that sees the Originals side of the brand reference a football archive, it's a level of synergy we can hope to see more of from adidas. There's no doubts about the constant influence between football and fashion industries. The Sobakov can now be held up as an example that shows what can be spawned through the meetings of minds. Those adidas stripes that run from one side to the next unlock memories - Beckham free-kicks - while punch into circles that command a strong look away from football entirely. While the almost Yeezy like shape plays into the contemporary streetwear game.
