Sean Wotherspoon has reached into his old bag of tricks for his latest, upcoming adidas sneaker collab. The new pair of sneakers, which is Wotherspoon's own silhouette called the Superturf Adventure SW, is decked out in one of his favorite materials: corduroy.
For his third eco-friendly sneaker collaboration with the Three Stripes, Wotherspoon will link up with Disney on the brand new outdoor-inspired model.
The debut colorway even sports Jiminy Cricket from Disney's Pinocchio on the tongue, a reference to the character's appearance on Disneyland recycling bins.
Weeks ago, the Round Two co-founder took to Instagram to initially tease the colorful sneaker, featuring a purple base with orange, yellow, and blue overlays. He wrote, "Corduroy is back, I’m hyped!" Wotherspoon famously used the material on his highly sought-after Nike Air Max 1/97.
More recently, however, he gave us a detailed look at the shoe, revealing that it is in fact his own silhouette. "Nothing feels better than wearing my own silhouette ♻️ “Super Turf Adventure by SW” shout out to @disney for letting me use Jiminy Cricket! Nothing short of a dream come true project for me," Wotherspoon said.
This time around, the vegan shoe is informed by recycled materials — the polyester in the sockliners is 100% recycled and it's 20% recycled in the uppers — and a cork insole. A detachable corduroy cover with a waterproof sealed zipper sits atop the laces. Best of all: the pouch can be taken off and used as a wallet or keychain if the wearer desires. The trail-like shoe uses the same Adiprene+ cushioning and outsole of the brand’s Response Hoverturf model.
Right now, it's unclear whether there will be more than one colorway of the collaborative sneaker dropping. According to sources, the designer's latest venture is set to release on September 25 via adidas' website and select stockists.
