During Week 1 of Coachella, Donald Glover gifted a handful of lucky fans his upcoming adidas sneaker collab. With the release date of April 26 finally being announced, Glover preps for the sneaker drop by surprisingly sharing not one but five trailers on Instagram.
Titled “1985”, Timber”, “Avocado”, “Polenta”, and “Dusty”, each trailer features Glover alongside actress/comedian Mo’Nique and Na-Kel Smith in hilarious random scenarios. From painting, to cooking, to making honey, each short visual finds the artist getting his adidas Nizza collab dirty and being the butt of all jokes from Mo’Nique.
With a focus on the personal narrative that worn-in sneakers can hold, and the wealth of experiences they bear, the collection is inspired by subtle imperfections.
“Rich is a concept,” says Donald Glover in the press release. “With this project, I wanted to encourage people to think about how their stories can be told on their feet. Value isn’t quantified by what you wear, rather the experiences from them. And you make the decision on what works for you, you live through your own lens. The partnership for me is about being able to exemplify what doing your own thing truly looks and feels like.”
The collaboration features reimagined designs for three classic adidas styles, the Nizza, the Continental 80, and the Lacombe, in subtle, tone-on-tone white canvas. Dropping on April 26, the Nizza will cost $80, the Continental 80’s $100, and the Lacombes $90.
