Alexander Wang Releases Final adidas Originals Drop of 2017Release: 24 November 2017
Alexander Wang and adidas Originals have really stretched out Season 2 of their collaborative collection. Rather than treating us to an entire sneaker smorgasbord, they've put us a on a steady, restrained diet of drops. As October's Drop 3 demonstrated, the brands are reluctant to unleash more than a couple of their bold new silhouettes upon us at one time.
Now, after months of seeing Wang kicks trickle past us, Season 2 is finally coming to its end. The Three Stripes have announced this 'Drop 4' will be the final offering from the duo in 2017. Perhaps reflecting the laid back nature of the Wang drops, adidas enlisted famed photographer Juergen Teller to shoot Drop 4's releases on the feet of chilled-out, sleepy models.
Three silhouettes are included in this drop: the AW Bball Lo, the AW Skate Mid, and the AW Run Mid.
The AW BBall first bounced onto the scene in March, and this collection's low top version comes in 'Dark Green Night'. Other than the mossy premium suede of the upper, the design and tech within these BOOST ball shoes remain the same. Similarly, the AW Skate Mid 'Bluebird' and the grey-hued AW Run Mid are merely re-jigged versions of what we've seen from the pair in earlier drops. Even so, these new colourways are not to be slept on.
