Model: A+P Luna Rossa 21
Release Date: December 9
Buy: Online and in-store at Prada boutiques and adidas flagship stores worldwide, as well as select retailers TBC
What We’re Saying: Finally, after months of leaks and teasers, adidas and Prada have unveiled the next iteration of their collaboration. After Prada reinterpreted the adidas Superstar, it’s now adidas’ turn to bring its expertise to Prada’s world. The result is the futuristic A+P Luna Rossa 21, which has been designed for the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli sailing team and is officially inspired by the design of the new AC75 Luna Rossa boat as well as iconic Prada and adidas sneakers from the past.
A more apt description would be that the shoe is a Prada America’s Cup sneaker with materials and technology borrowed from adidas. The sneaker features a Boost midsole, as well as a upper made of recycled materials called “PRIMEGREEN.”
What the Internet Is Saying: Early opinion on the shoes is split, though that’s likely not enough to prevent the sneakers from selling out immediately upon release. Some feel the expected retail price will be too high — though a relatively high retail price is to be expected from a Prada x adidas release. Others, like @tsunamiace, say the shoe is growing on them. If you ask us, this shoe most definitely trumps the Superstars and is more in-line with what one would expect an adidas x Prada shoe to look like.
Stay tuned for detailed release information.
