Wales Bonner Continue adidas colab, Introduce Mainline Models for A/W 23
From the exclusive Salehe x Crocs Pollex pop-up to the upcoming Louis Vuitton A/W 23 show, Paris Fashion Week has already provided an onslaught of heat and anticipation. Next up on the PFW hype train is Wales Bonner, and the London-based label delivered an impressive collection chock full of references to ‘artists, writers, watchers and seekers’. The brand’s long-standing partnership with adidas has continued, and Wales Bonner are also set to release their first-ever mainline sneaker.
The Wales Bonner x adidas alliance has been fruitful for both parties in its three years of operating, embodying the true meaning of collaboration. Back at it again for Autumn/Winter 2023, Bonner has cast the Sambas aside, instead opting for an interesting choice – what looks like the adidas Pro Model 2G. While it hasn’t been confirmed by either party, the bulky hardwood look remains the same, with each bolstered with monotone colours and subtle colourful accents. Alongside the Pro Model 2G is a set of co-branded soccer jerseys, previewing their upcoming collaboration with Jamaica’s national football team.
Backed by a soundtrack that included original work from Kendrick Lamar, Duval Timothy, and Sampha were the first Wales Bonner inline sneakers. Both pairs included mostly monochromatic builds, with contrasting silver panels and colourful accents.
Usher and Heitor Da Silva were also in attendance at the presentation, the two caught in neck-breaking pairs of unreleased Wales Bonner x adidas Sambas, hinting that last season’s iterations could be on the way…
You can expect all of the Wales Bonner footwear, including the adidas collaboration, to land alongside the rest of the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2023 offerings.
