Throughout the years we’ve seen multiple adidas and Marvel collaborative collections. To the delight of sneakerheads and Marvel fans the two re back with a new timely project. With the upcoming release of the new Blank Panther: Wakanda Forever movie, the duo has developed a sneakers and apparel collection.
This new launch sees some of adidas’ fan-favorite kicks in a Black Panther makeover. Models such as the Ultra Boost 5.0 DNA and the Ultra 4D, have been reimagined with a themed color palette that uses deep black as its base along with metallic gold and carbon purple for the small details that pay tribute to the Black Panther universe.
For the exclusive franchise collaboration, both previously mentioned models got quite the remake. The 4Ds employed adidas’ cutting edge 3D-printed midsole, giving the shoe support, bounce and an increased life span. All black with the exception of gold stripes and an added purple detail on the inside, the toe box features the central design element: diamond detailing that’s reminiscent of the clawed necklace that sits on the Black Panther’s suit.
For the 5.0 DNAs, the brand continued the use of black for the background but have also incorporated flecks of white and abstract detailing for a decorative touch. These two models are the true cornerstone of this new collaboration, but the collection also includes other styles that are specifically geared towards practicing sports.
Accompanying the sneakers, the collection also features a significant range of apparel, including graphic joggers, bike shorts, and leggings, as well as a running T-shirt and tank top. The bottoms have similar designs, all with a black base and sharp, geometric details, either in tonal black, purple or gold. The tops share the same color palette but have a Badge of Sport graphic which is written in Wakandan. There are also plenty of other items to shop, from sweatshirts to swimwear to accessories.
