Release Date: May 9
Price: €180 (approximately $200)
Editor’s Notes: Spanish retailer Sivasdescalzo has teamed up with adidas to rework the German brand’s football-inspired Sobakov silhouette, which originally launched in the run-up to the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The Sobakov Boost features an exposed Boost midsole at the heel and reworked Three Stripes branding on the side that takes inspiration from the 1998 adidas Predator Accelerator football cleat.
Sivasdescalzo’s Sobakov and the accompanying collared football jersey reference 1982 World Cup mascot Naranjito, a jolly little orange representing host country Spain. The color-blocking on the sneaker’s upper references the colors used on the mascot’s design, and Naranjito himself is on the jersey’s breast. The jersey will be available for free for the first few who purchase the new silhouette from the retailer.
Check out the kicks in detail above and get ready for the drop tomorrow, May 9.
