The adidas approach to soccer is all encompassing. It’s not just that the three stripes have been a fixture in all the glamorous championship games for decades, it’s not just that they’ve been equally prevalent all the way down the soccer pyramid; it’s that adidas have been as much a part of watching the game as playing it. Lineker, Forest Hills, Robson, ZX500 Dalglish, Trimm Trabb, the names blend together in the mind so effortlessly.
The latest team up of Bodega and adidas sees two new three stripes models, the Kamanda and the Sobakov, bring the low profile sleekness of soccer footwear to contemporary lifestyle silhouettes. The Kamada features a tonal black, ballistic nylon upper with classic stripes, offset by an olive, knit tongue, and khaki suede heel tab. A rugged, textured tread pattern sole wraps around the entire shoe. The Sobakov, with a ribbed suede upper in tan, a reflective silver, modernist variation of the three stripes, which wrap around the heel, and a sole pattern is rendered in sculpted waves opts for a more casual interpretation of aggressive design.
Upper: textile, suede. Midsole: Boost™, Sole: rubber. Imported.
