adidas Originals and SANKUANZ officially unveil their most comprehensive footwear collection to date. Looking to adidas’ catalog of retro basketball silhouettes, SANKUANZ creates a trio of hybrid sneakers, punctuated by SANKUANZ’s signature Solar green hue. Using design references that span from the late ’60s to the ’90s, SANKUANZ utilizes imaginative sole-swapping techniques to remix the classics.
The Streetball Forum melds elements of the 1984 Forum, and the next-generation adidas Streetball silhouette. The Streetball’s technical sole and lacing construction are fused with the upper of the Forum, which can be recognized by the iconic ankle strap. A two-layered tongue features an adidas insignia on the tongue with SANKUANZ logos on the rear. A blue gel node appears on the lateral side.
The Rivalry Promodel reimagines the predecessor of the Superstar, the 1969 Promodel, with features from the ‘80s Rivalry. Retaining the signature, retro styling of both aforementioned shoes, the hybridized design has a Solar green hit on the heel. A two-layered tongue once again features an adidas insignia on the tongue with SANKUANZ logos on the rear.
Lastly, the Solution Streetball borrows from adidas’ famed EQT range to round out the pack of three cross-bred designs. Stylized 3-Stripes streak across the technical upper. A two-layered tongue and blue gel node create continuity across the trio of designs.
