adidas Originals and the groundbreaking Chinese designer, Dingyun Zhang, have come together to launch their inaugural collaborative silhouette: a decidedly innovative take on the signature Samba sneaker.

 

Straddling cultural influences, the silhouette takes inspiration from the 2006 adidas Predator Absolute cleat, while the puffy low-cut look is inspired by 2000s skate references with an exaggerated cushioned heel and a low-cut look reminiscent of the era when street skaters would take a box cutter to their brand-new shoes and convert them into low tops. Crafted with the utmost attention to detail, the sneaker also features breathable holes along the shoe’s stripes placed at custom distances, a slightly shorter tongue, and tonal branding. Constructed in a monochromatic finish, the all-black look offers a nod to the designer’s own school years, when he was obliged to black-out his Sambas, in order to conform with uniform dress codes.
