UPDATE: We've just got in some new pics of this svelte Samoa. The new images show the shoes in a more vibrant light and do the deep pastel colours justice. Shouts to Sneaker Politics for the pics, roll through to their online store now to cop.
One of adidas' OG models has been treated to some premier pig skin. The Samoa, which began as an indoor soccer shoe, receives three tonal colours for this pigskin pack; a 'Vapour Pink', Vapour Grey' and a 'Pale Nude'. The pack reportedly derived from a conversation Woody White from Oyster Holdings had with the adidas design team. He wanted to release a pack that expressed his memory of the shoes, and their impact on early 2000s streetwear, but do it with premium, modern finishes. The result comes in these three wavy, svelte-looking silhouettes.
The adidas Samoa Pigskin Pack will be released on May 21 from adidas and select retailers.
