Gosha Rubchinskiy unveiled his surprise collaboration with adidas Football in Kaliningrad, Russia earlier this month, and with it came our first look at his take on the ACE 16+ SUPER sneaker.

The ACE 16+ SUPER wasn’t the only sneaker on show (you can the others here) but it was certainly the one that caught our eye the most — in no small part because it comes with that bang-on-trend sock design. It’s derived from adidas Football’s ACE 16 + football boot (worn by the likes of Paul Pogba and Gareth Bale, no less) and comes with a seamless Primeknit upper in tonal red, black or white, with thick Three Stripes branding on the side panels.

The minimalist aesthetic is continued with a thin white midsole and a classic gum outsole that curls up slightly at the toe for a retro-yet-futuristic effect, and for footballers who actually want to play futsal in it.

Stay tuned for release dates.
