33-year-old, award-winning menswear designer, Craig Green, is one of the fastest growing high-fashion curators in the game today. His explorative approach to practical uniform necessities has allowed him to become an elite contributor within the realm of fashion. Now, coming fresh off his SS20 fashion presentation, it has been revealed that he has teamed up with adidas for his very own sneaker collection utilizing the adidas Kamanda as his silhouette of choice for the Craig Green x adidas Kamanda Collection.
Originally unveiled in 2017, the adidas Kamanda is a soccer-inspired silhouette that originated as a design experiment from the ’80s. The sneaker takes on a sloping T-toe and tread-patterned outsole meant to mimic the notorious adidas Samba. Now, after seeing numerous collaborative styles, Craig Green has revamped the aesthetic of the kicks like we’ve never seen before.
The Craig Green x adidas Kamanda features a synthetic-cased, translucent upper, shoelace dubraes that read Green’s namesake fashion brand and an overlapping textured midsole, outsole combination. Multiple colorway variations have been revealed including shades of green, blue, orange and gunmetal with hints of iridescent paneling found throughout the sneaker. Another variation of the Green x trefoil gang collab comes with a matching tread upper in a metallic silver hue.
As of right now, there is no official release date for the Craig Green x adidas Kamanda Collection. But, we can expect to see the collaboration hit shelves most likely around first quarter of next year. Check out the Craig Green Kamanda Collection for yourself in the photos below.
