adidas x Wales Bonner SL72 Knit Trainer - Dark Brown / Orange
adidas x Wales Bonner SL72 Knit Trainer in Dark Brown/Orange.
A highly anticipated pair from the ongoing adidas x Wales Bonner collaboration , the SL72 in this luscious "Chocolate" seamlessly merges Bonner's exquisite silhouettes and eye for colour with an iconic model from adidas' archives. This special partnership beautifully intertwines elements of European culture and African heritage, something of a signature for head designer Grace Wales Bonner, resulting in a truly remarkable shoe.
The adidas SL72 dates back to the 1970s, being the first shoe to showcase the now universally recognised trefoil logo. Originally conceived as a casual sneaker for the Munich Olympic Games, the SL72 was crafted to grace the feet of podium-bound athletes but over the years, this silhouette has been retroed multiple times and has become a staple in its many collaborative colorways, solidifying its status as a timeless classic.
In this particular iteration, the SL72 embraces the combination of traditional and contemporary design elements so commonly found in past Wales Bonner x adidas collections. A rich brown knit pattern adorns the upper exudes an air of refined elegance while the luxurious suede paneling around the lower section elevates the shoe's aesthetic appeal. Adding a striking contrast, the clay orange saw-toothed 3-Stripes pay homage to adidas' signature branding.
Bonner's distinct logo, tastefully embossed in a light beige hue, graces the heel, subtly nodding to the collaboration's lead designer. Further branding details are incorporated on the tongue and sockliner, showcasing the meticulous attention to detail that characterises this exceptional partnership. Completing the ensemble, a cream white rubber outsole adds a touch of contrast while ensuring optimal traction and durability.
Experience the seamless fusion of heritage and contemporary design with the Wales Bonner x adidas SL72 "Chocolate" epitomising the craftsmanship and artistic vision of a timeless collaboration.
