NOAH and adidas have reconvened to release another sustainable collection, trawling through adidas’ endless archives and fishing out the Rod Laver and an unknown basketball shoe from the 80’s, the Probound, as well as a host of apparel choices.
The NOAH x adidas Rod Laver arrives as an essential dad shoe – named after the grand-slam winning tennis star from 1962 – and sees a tonal grey upper made up of recycled ocean plastic with green/navy mismatched detailing on the heel tab and outsole. NOAH’s take on the Probound comes in a colorway identical to the one it had on released in the 80’s; a simple white, blue and red scheme works on the heritage ball shoe featuring panelling akin to the Rivalry and Forum.
“Athletics inspired workwear” makes up the majority of the apparel collection in a fusion of adidas’ performance-centric design philosophies with NOAH’s cultivated streetwear aesthetic. Floral prints appear liberally throughout, with a full tracksuit being the undoubtable highlight alongside accessories (caps and socks) that the New York label has become universally regarded for.
The collection will be available June 17 through the adidas site.
