The last footwear collaboration we saw from Palace was with Kickers in the form of a set of low-top boat shoes tinged in lightly colored nubuck. This time around, the adidas Originals Superstar was the chosen silhouette for collaboration, served up in three bold colorways — black, white and neon. The uppers are constructed using premium leather with three-stripes branding at the sides as subtle perforations. Covering the remainder of the tongue are wide, tonal laces that add texture to the leather sneakers. EST, June 7.
There are collabs, and then there are collabs. Some make sense, others are hardly more than quick cash-grabs that rely more on brand recognition and internet hype than on anything else. But you can trust us on this: the collaboration of Palace Skateboards and Adidas is fucking awesome. The highly acclaimed skateboarding and street wear brand Palace has joined forces with legendary sportswear manufacturer Adidas to create a unique collection of clothes and accessories that unites the best of both worlds. From a design standpoint, Adidas x Palace is heavily influenced by the latter.
