The Nigo x Adidas Originals collection will release their first line of clothing on October 24th. If you haven’t heard of Nigo before, you might know the popular Japanese vintage street wear label BAPE (otherwise known as A Bathing Ape). Nigo has brought some of his unique looks and ideas to original Adidas designs, including dressing up the iconic Adidas silhouettes that we’ve all come to know and love with a multitude of colors, offering something different that can suit everyone.
Here we have a look at five different designs and pieces of clothing that will feature in Nigo’s release this week:
Superstar 80s Nigo Shoes
A re-do of the famous Superstar 80s shoes from Adidas made famous by Run DMC, this shoe features full grain leather, matching three stripes and fat laces. It will be available in nude (a beige type colour) and the ever popular white, Nigo has kept the rubber shell toe to maintain the classic look and while the difference may not be obvious, once you compare them you can see Nigo’s spin on this much loved classic.
Another spin on another much-loved classic, Nigo has created a new look for this shoe featuring a layered leather upper with metallic overlays but keeping the original heel clip and lightweight midsole. As with all of Nigo’s designs, it also features his signature “25” label on the tounge.
In Nigo’s relook of the Marathon TR Mid, he brings back the 80s look of mesh and suede. For those who love vintage looks, these will be perfect for you. Featuring a foam padded collar and Trefoil tread that throw back to the original Adidas design.
Keeping the classic Adidas look, the beanie is a bold colour with the typical three stripes on the brim when it is folded down. Nigo has added his signature “25” label but kept the design otherwise original to the Adidas design that we all know and love.
Nigo has added his own flair to the classic three stripes men’s jacket, adding his custom Trefoil Adidas logo and bear graphic on the sleeves. While these graphic additions may look a little cartoony and almost childish, it keeps true to Nigo’s usual funky designs.
