Sometimes, a classic colorway of an all-time silhouette just can’t be beat. Sometimes, it’s only about a fresh perspective on an OG. Therefore, BSTN submitted a contemporary take on a classic for Round 1 of the inaugural adidas Consortium Cup and the OG with a twist emerged victorious from the first round of the competition.
Convinced that a classic’s a classic for a reason, the BSTN edition of the legendary adidas Samba focuses on material stories and premium quality execution. From the eye-catching patent leather on the toe box to the iconic three stripes being dipped in super-soft black nubuck, every aspect of the upper received a special treatment without distorting the characteristic aesthetic of the OG.
While the overall look and the Samba’s unique color blocking remain unadulterated, subtle details like an elaborate chenille patch on the neoprene tongue and a PVC-reinforced eyestay featuring a BSTN Brand logo are added all over the shoe. The design in rounded out by a custom-built, molded heel tab.
The accompanying campaign features BSTN family friend and three-time Champions League winner David Alaba (Real Madrid) in a playful take on the concept of athletes endorsing products with varying degree of genuineness.
