Editor’s Notes: Kid Cudi finally has his own adidas sneaker. A followup to the Artillery Hi made for Bill & Ted Face the Music, today we get our first look at the signature silhouette, which is being called the Vadawam 326.
Cudi's Vadawam 326 is inspired by all things space-related. When designing the sneaker, he specifically drew from NASA and sci-fi, as well as '90s basketball shoes and his daughter, Vada, of which the silhouette is named after.
The collaborative shoe boasts a mid-top build, featuring three midfoot straps over-top the laces to ensure a secure fit. The retro basketball sneaker inspiration is evident, as all in all, the Vadawam 326 incorporates elements from the past, all while looking ahead to the future.
The Kid Cudi x adidas Vadawam 326 will first be available in two colorways of Core Black, Night Grey, and Solar Pink and White, Ecru Tint, and Easy Yellow, each retailing for $180.
