In the second collection of 3Way collaborations for the adidas Consortium pack, the three stripe brand employs the street master stores, UNDFTD, Goodfoot, Huf and DQM. Swtiching up the debut series by A.R.C, SNS, Limited Editions and Patta, this time all four stores put their mad brains together to come up with four serperate and unique 3Way concoctions. Check them out!
The Samba has evolved from a terrace favourite to a popular choice of shoe in the fixed gear bike scene and a range of iterations in between. When the crew from Goodfoot, Huf, DQM and Undefeated sat down to work out the details of Samba the ‘simple is best’ ethos came to the fore. The upper is a solid black textile material with the 3-Stripes removed, which when straddling the white midsole reinforces the low-slung feel of the silhouette. Branding is minimal over the whole shoe, with the Trefoil on the heel tab also etched in black and the tongue featuring the names of the participating partners circling the Trefoil. The top lace eyelet brings home the ‘less is more’ theme with barely noticeable Consortium branding.
