Adidas x United Arrows & Sons team up again for new collection releasing 8/25.
For their second collaboration of 2018, Adidas and the iconic Japanese retailer/brand United Arrows & Sons channel the era of the four elements: b-boys and graffiti; MC-ing and turntablism. According to Adidas, at the heart of the collaborative collection is a new take on the Adidas trefoil logo, created by the infamous graffiti artist Wanto.
The WANTO trefoil appears across the entire collection of footwear, apparel and accessories, offsetting the refined silhouettes and progressive details that are also synonymous with United Arrows & Sons. Included in the collection is Rivalry Lo, featuring Italian snakeskin-printed leather detailing, flat laces and an all-black backdrop for WANTO’s graphic, and the Ultra Star which maintains the shelltoe and classic silhouette along with advanced materials such as knitted uppers and a Boost midsole.
The apparel includes two tracksuits, oversized tops, a long jacket inspired by a classic Chester coat that features an all-over jacquard print of WANTO’s graphics and contrasting three-stripe detailing; a classic varsity jacket with cow leather sleeves and oversized, co-branded WANTO’s graphics stitched to the chest.
The full Adidas x United Arrows & Sons collection will be available for purchase on August 25.
