One of the definitive fashion blogs in streetwear, High Snobiety always have a little something extra to give, thanks to their exhaustive knowledge, when they are tapped for a collaborative project.
Their latest partnership, with Adidas, plays on the massive impact on the style world that Adidas performance athletic shoes have made over the years.
The Campus 80s takes one of the core Adidas silhouettes, one that has been around for so long that its impact on fashion has outstripped its athletic history. The classic low-top suede basketball shoe went from hardwood courts to cutting a familiar, often brightly colored, figure on streets around the globe.
The High Snobiety interpretation takes the premium materials approach. The simple, clean good looks of the Campus remain the same, while the glove leather upper and soft, tan leather lining take the shoe to another level.
For the collaboration’s modern element, the Ultra Boost adds to its ever-growing legion of followers. The Ultra Boost isn’t the first, and it won’t be the last performance running shoe by Adidas to attract a massive fashion following, but it might be the shoe that has made the leap in the shortest amount of time.
For the sneaker fans planning on using the shoe for leisure and not laps, the High Snobiety Ultra Boost pairs a knitted upper with a leather support cage, leather insole, and all-over print High Snobiety branding.
