Adidas and Prada Have Teamed up to Create the Chicest Dang Sneakers We’ve Ever Seen
The Internet has been abuzz with news of the partnership for weeks, and on Tuesday the brands gave sneaker-heads a sneak peak of the shoes they'll be able to shop. And, holy moly—they are gorgeous (as if we expected anything less). The two iconic brands joined together to create an all-white take on the Adidas Superstar, dubbed the Prada Superstar (price has yet to be confirmed but is rumored to be around $350), which is being described by the duo as "evolved from its sports and subcultural roots into modern luxury."
The drool-worthy sneakers are made with Prada's full-grain leather, and emblazoned with the word "Prada" across the back quadrant. For an added element of "holy shit these sneakers are cool," there are only going to be 700 of them produced—and each pair is stamped with the edition number. They look like the Rolls Royce of stylish sneakers, and are equally as rare and wonderful. Basically, they're the kind of sneakers you can only wear if you've got a car service to take you everywhere (... because these pearly whites definitely do not mix with New York City street sludge), and deserve a nightly cleaning with a teeny-tiny toothbrush.
Shoes aren't the only limited-edition accessory to come out of the collab: The brands also created an Adidas-ified version of Prada's classic bowling bag, which comes in all white with simple black detailing (to match the shoes, of course). Wear them together for the most luxurious locker room look of all time... just be sure you actually lock your locker, because these are some seriously hot ticket items.
The collab launches on December 4th on the Adidas and Prada respective websites, and since there are only 700 pairs of shoes available, you're going to want to mark your calendars—we've got a feeling these babies will go quick. The good news, though? The brand partnership itself isn't a limited time thing, so stay tuned for more chic, must-have goodness. And, if you want to get your hands on a pair of white sneakers sooner than the Prada Superstar drop, shop some comparable picks (including the non-Prada version of the Adidas original) below.
