Back in July 2019, Arizona Iced Tea and adidas Originals held one of the wildest sneaker releases in recent history. The Three Stirpes and the discount tea brand delivered a handful of colorful teal and pink Continentals and Yung-96 at a New York City pop up for the drink’s MSRP of 99 cents. Yes, $1 kicks. Naturally, the event got out of hand and NYPD had to step in and shut the shit down. It was a true success in marketing terms, so much so that the hype flowed onto their follow-up collection a mere month later. Now, after putting their partnership on ice, the duo return for a four-piece Arizona x adidas Superstar capsule, and today we’ve got a first look at one of those pairs.
In keeping with the Tea’s brand aesthetic, the pairs arrive in the OG can’s teal, pink, mint, and yellow hues paired with creamy leathers and shell toes. Paneling is mismatched, with beacon-debossed profile panels in teal, sail, mint, and pink respectively, each featuring tonal Three Stripe overlays. Playful motifs arrive embroidered in seemingly random placements, including bison-riding mascots, the recurring beacon motif — and even a playful jive about big cans. Further whimsical touches are added at the frozen face emoji dubraes and icicle-laden tongue tags, before co-branding floods the release at the rear overlays, insoles, and underfoot the translucent outsole. Completing the design is a quartet of lace sets, all tucked away in a casing inspired by Arizona’s Cherry Blossom Green Tea packaging.
