This past September, adidas Originals announced that it had engaged in a creative partnership with multi-hyphenate Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino.
Glover’s partnership announcement was accompanied by an animated short, for which he donned an unmarked white lowtop sneaker. Now it appears that unidentified shoe is, in fact, his very-first collaborative adidas sneaker.
Seemingly a variation of the traditional adidas Nizza, the low-cut canvas sneaker is broken and distressed for a weathered aesthetic. The shoe’s off-white upper is offset by true white Three Stripes branding that almost looks painted on. Those match a pristine white rubberized sole unit and white laces with accompanying black stripes.
This first look at Glover’s debut adidas release is not yet founded with release details. Stay tuned for more.
Update 4/24: After airdropping pairs to fans at Coachella during his towering performance, Donald Glover and adidas prep the official release of his debut collaborative collection. Releasing alongside a Continental 80 and Lacombe, take a closer look at Glover’s Nizza courtesy of Hypebeast. All three pairs of the collection will release on April 26 at adidas.com.
