Craig Green x adidas Polta AKH II Core Black
The Craig Green x adidas Polta AKH II Core Black was first debuted during the London-based designer’s recent SS20 runway show at London Fashion Week Men’s. Green’s signature flamboyant and polished aesthetic is mirrored throughout the shoe to create an impressive avant-garde collaboration.
The pair uses a familiar-looking sole that is taken from the adidas Originals Kamanda, a silhouette that was launched in 2017 and has been a popular option ever since. The upper is reworked to niche specifications that feature translucent panelling and utilitarian metal lace loops. Craig Green stated in a recent interview that the concept behind the shoes is to mirror the sole of each pair on the upper - certainly not a simple task.
Underfoot the Kamanda sole showcases intricate treads to offer optimum comfort and support underfoot, meaning the shoe is not just fashionable but also suitable for extended periods of wear, unlike many uncomfortable high-end trainers.
The Craig Green x adidas Polta AKH II Core Black is a heavily conceptual and well-made collaborative sneaker and whether you’re a fan of high-end fashion or not, there’s no denying these will make a worthy addition to any collection.
