Release Date: August 18
Price: €130 (approximately $160)

Editor’s Notes: Solebox General Manager Aljoscha Kondratiew was first spotted wearing the Solebox colorway of the YUNG-1 silhouette during Berlin fashion week in July, indicating that the retailer might be serving up a special make-up version very soon. Now, just over a month later, Solebox has officially communicated the release information for the Solebox x adidas Originals YUNG-1.
The sneaker will finally release on August 18 at all Solebox stores and online for a retail price of €130 (approximately $160).
To commemorate the release, Solebox invited @agathapowa, @kanescans, @massimo.taylor, and @runnerwally to shoot the sneaker alongside an actual, living falcon. Shot in analogue, the lookbook stays true to the sneaker’s Falcon Dorf origins.
Below, adidas Originals’ Till Jagla explains the design inspiration behind both the Falcon Dorf and the YUNG-1.
