JJJJound may be collecting its another sneaker collab infinity stone, as the Montreal-based studio is rumored to link with adidas next.

Images of the alleged sneaker collaboration — a first for the two — surfaced on November 28, teasing a JJJJound x adidas Samba sneaker in two neutral colorways.

In the photos, JJJJound's Samba sneakers materialize in black and tan color options. The black iteration saw leather primarily take over the upper, save a suede toe, following in the footsteps of adidas' OG Samba look.

Meanwhile, the tan version boasted a mix of hairy and smooth suede materials, from the lining to the exterior.

JJJJound's Samba shoes naturally feature adidas' classic Three-Stripes on the upper and the model's traditional gum sole, in addition to JJJJound's logo on the heel tab.

Interestingly, the shoe's signature gold "Samba" on the upper and contrasting branded tongue is absent from this rumored collaboration.

The JJJJound x adidas Sambas sees the brand again work its minimalist magic, preserving the understated nature of classic models and issuing very subtle — almost unnoticeable, in some cases — tweaks.

In short, the Samba shoes have caught a whiff of the "JJJJound effect," as Highsnobiety news editor Jake Silbert calls it, like the brand's plain PUMAs and general release-esque ASICS sneakers.

Both brands have yet to confirm whether the JJJJoound x adidas Samba sneakers are indeed a thing. But, if rumors prove to be true, expect the same JJJJound hype to follow suit with this collab.
