Alexander Wang is doing exciting things with adidas. Recent colabs like his AW Bball Soccer and Crazy 97 EQT Elevate are off-kilter enough to scare away normies, yet familiar enough to entice Three Stripe enthusiasts.
His latest colab chalks up another win: enter the reference-heavy Turnout Trainer. Elements from trefoil history and previous AW works show in the jagged gum heel, flipped branding, and exposed stitching that play on adidas’ serrated stripes. The Turnout also continues a run of designers taking a shoe’s guts and baring them to the world by sporting inners as outers.
Those feeling the new Wang can get involved on June 23.
