Renowned for their considered collaborations, END. Clothing has once again raised the bar with its latest triumph – the Adidas Samba “Past,” the proud winner of the inaugural adidas Consortium Cup.
Launched in February, the Consortium Cup by Adidas was a global sneaker design competition that brought together creative talents worldwide. In a fierce first-round battle against Hanon, END. chose to reimagine the beloved adidas Samba. The result is a captivating blend of eclectic materials and tapestry-inspired patterns that pay homage to the past while forging a distinct identity for the present.
The END. x Adidas Samba “Past” is a masterclass in understated elegance, primarily dressed in “Ecru Tint” and “Magic Beige.” However, the shoe's true character is revealed in its intricate details – the frayed 3-stripes on the profile and the rich tapestry of colors that adorn the mid-foot, heel, and sockliners. These features not only infuse the shoe with a unique "do-it-yourself" charm but also create a tapestry of nostalgia and craftsmanship.
The collaboration is further elevated by “Metallic Gold” co-branding on the tongue, adding a bespoke element to this celebrated design. Underneath, the sneaker retains its football-inspired roots with a classic gum brown sole, grounding the design in Adidas's rich heritage.
Pairs will be available from November 22nd, with the draw now live on END. Launches.
