Ahead of the release of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, adidas unveils a new collection inspired by the film. Marvel partnered with adidas to create a range of innovative performance and sportswear apparel and footwear that spans across tennis, running, and football.
The Wakanda Forever Collection offers extended sizing and gender-neutral silhouettes, with each product featuring designs inspired by the Afrofuturism of Wakanda’s universe. Highlights from the collection include the adidas Ultra 4D, adiZero Ubersonic 4 BP, the Black Panther adiZero PK, and the adidas Mahomes 1 Impact FLX. Each pair is outfitted with contemporary tribal print, royal purple details, and metallic gold accents. The Wakanda Forever Collection also features a range lifestyle apparel including t-shirts, hoodies, accessories, and more.
“This unique and first-of-its-kind collection is a true testament to the beauty of sport and its ability to unite and foster diverse and inclusive communities,” said Vicky Free, SVP Global Marketing at adidas. “We believe that sport has the power to change lives and we feel the spirit of Wakanda exudes this belief. I am confident that the bespoke design language and inclusive, gender-neutral size range of this amazing collection will excite adidas and Wakanda fans alike around the world.”

Marvel x adidas Mahomes 1 Impact FLX “Wakanda Forever”
Patrick Mahomes’ signature Impact FLX is reimagined in a Wakandan colorway. The clean upper rides on a wavy, nubbed outsole that provides traction on a variety of surfaces. A drop-in Boost midsole offers incredible energy return for cross-training. The purple accents on the outsole are inspired by the fictional power-giving, heart-shaped herb native to Wakanda.
A hybrid trainer, the adidas Ultra 4D combines the iconic silhouette of the Ultraboost with the coded performance of adidas’ 3D-printed 4D midsole. Precisely coded performance zones combine adidas’s best stability, comfort, and absorption so athletes can conquer unpredictable city streets. Features graphic detailing inspired by traditional Wakandan patterns and the Black Panther’s claw necklace.
Building on the performance of the iconic Ubersonic models, the adidas adiZero Ubersonic 4 boasts three key innovations which come together to offer a truly unique experience. The midsole features Lightstrike, which provides super-light cushioning for fast-paced movements without compromising direct court feel. A woven mesh upper provides stability and support for lateral movements and changes of direction, and is layered on top of a breathable, comfortable knitted sock construction.
Marvel Black Panther adiZero PK Cleats
Get ready for gametime as the nation of Wakanda inspires the adidas adiZero Primeknit Cleats. It features an ultra-light frame for making breakaways and a sock-like upper that provides light comfort and locked-down stability. The X-Band, like the Wakandan salute, locks boot to foot for additional support.
