Mardi Gras, the time of year when all eyes are guaranteed to be on New Orleans, which makes it a perfect time for a sneaker release devoted to the iconic carnival festivities. To celebrate the opening of their new, New Orleans location, Sneaker Politics have teamed up with Adidas on a Consortium tribute to the Mardi Gras festival.
Traditional elements of the Mardis Gras celebration, the vibrant yet regal colors of purple, green, and gold, and the famous King Cake, a brioche dough, puff pastry, filled cake with a baby figurine hidden inside, are incorporated into a Primeknit edition of the classic Adidas Gazelle silhouette.
Finding the King Cake baby is said to bring good fortune to the lucky celebrant. Maybe the first slice of good luck is the white base, colorful Primeknit pattern, and gum sole of the Adidas Consortium x Sneaker Politics Gazelle Primeknit.
