Italian denim giant Diesel and German sportswear brand Adidas Originals have teamed up to create a limited edition trainer series.
Diesel has redesigned five classic Adidas footwear styles with designs including the Stan Smith Special, featuring a “puzzle-like” design with patches made of camel leather, and the Forum Mid Diesel Txt with “reflector touches” on the stitching, straps and eyelets. Only 10,000 pairs will be available from January 20 in Diesel stores and on Diesel.com.
The pair previously teamed up on a denim collaboration in 2008.
Stefano Rosso, son of Diesel founder Renzo Rosso and head of strategic brand alliances for the company, said: “After the amazing denim collaboration, when Diesel’s know-how was infused by Adidas’ spirit, we are now starting a new chapter of the partnership: The heritage of the two brands will come together, applying our spirit on Adidas classic kicks.”
