Brand: Craig Green x adidas Originals
Model: CG SCUBA STAN
Release Date: October 31
Editor's Notes: At the start of the year, Craig Green took to London Fashion Week to showcase what FW22 would have in store. Amongst the designer's iconic quilted lines and a broad selection of head-turning apparel pieces was a striking selection of sneakers developed alongside long-time partners adidas.
The relationship between Three Stripes and Craig Green has been an exciting one, seeing the designer not only rework some of the brand's most favored sneaker styles while also highlighting what a CG looks like.
Season-to-season, the relationship has continued to evolve, resulting in SCUBA PHORMAR, Kontuur II, and Superstar, amongst others.
When the pair signaled what the future of their collaborative efforts had in store, we jumped into conversation with Craig Green to take a closer look at not only upcoming retail pairs but some of the more experimental creations birthed to bring FW22 to life.
One of the show's biggest focuses for the season was Craig Green's interpretation of the Stan Smith, dubbed the CG SCUBA STAN.
Serving as a natural evolution of the DNA established with the creation of the SCUBA PHORMAR, the CG SCUBA STAM pairs the Stan Smith's iconic profile with the utilitarian edge of the SCUBA PHORMAR. The result is a retro-futurist beast that shows the SS still has plenty of potential left in it.
For its launch, three colorways have been offered up, including two monochromatic looks – black and clay-like beige – while the third maintains the Stan Smith's classic green-on-white coloring.
