At the end of last year, adidas unexpectedly tapped London-based vintage store Absolute Vintage for a Yung-1 collaboration. Priced at a mere £28, only one hundred pairs of each other colourway were made, making them some of the most limited sneakers in existence. Now, the Three Stripes is looking to replicate this formula with a brand new collaboration with AriZona Iced Tea!
Joining forces for a four piece capsule, including the Yung-1 and the Continental 80, each shoe is available in two different colourways. The first is based off AriZona’s Green Tea, working on a clean teal canvas with pink flowers embroidered throughout the upper, while the second arrives in a teal, pink, yellow, and grey palette that resembles AriZona’s Iced Tea. The classic adidas tongue logo has been replaced with “GREAT BUY! 99¢”, which not only is the price of a can of AriZona, but also the shoes themselves!
Of course, with such a low retail price, the AriZona Iced Tea x adidas collection is going to sell out like hotcakes, so if you want to grab a pair, you need to listen up! Set to drop on July 18th and July 19th at a surprise New York City pop-up event at 208 Bowery, these will be available on a first come, first serve basis, so if you’re based anywhere else in the world, you better start making some NYC-based friends! Will you be attempting to cop? Let us know, and while you’re here, be sure to take a look at the full adidas sneaker range!
