The spring-summer collection is arguably the most exciting period of the fashion calendar. Brands unleash their biggest, boldest, most vibrant creations for enthusiastic fans and patrons to cherish. The sneaker release calendar also aligns with this, and we see industry giants coming out with some of their most exciting releases for this season.
Adidas has been at the top of the game since it emerged on the scene. For the past few years, the brand has expanded its identity as Adidas sneakers are no longer about functionality only. Along with high utility, the brand has invested in promoting creativity. Celeb collaborations and fillip to independent designers have resulted in some truly avant garde pieces that are part of the Adidas catalogue now.
Fans can expect the same level of innovation from launches slated for March 2022. Thrifter brings you a list of some of the hottest, most exciting Adidas Sneakers for men hitting the market this March.
1. adidas Gil Zero Restomod in ‘Black Gold’
This pair is the result of the meeting of two legends. Gilbert Arenas, three-time NBA All Star, partnered with sneaker giant Adidas to produce this stunning court shoe. The latest iteration of the Restomod features a black and gold colorway, which gives a more elevated, high fashion feel to the silhouette. This variant can easily uplift any outfit and add a fashionable edge.
The designers have played around with different materials and textures to produce a complex and stunning design. The upper features glossy-finish leather, contrasted with matte mesh, while branding and accents are added in metallic gold. The classy color combination continues all the way down to the sole, which features a uniquely ridged pattern for maximum traction and control.
2. Rich Mnisi x adidas Ultra Boost 2022
This March, Adidas is coming in hot and heavy with bold designs, vibrant colorways and innovative silhouettes. A frontrunner of this league is the Ultra Boost pair, another one from South African designer Rich Mnisi’s collaboration with the brand. Staying true to Rich’s brand’s signature style, the shoe features several animal prints on the sides and the midsole. The choice of bold neon colors for these patterns is a running theme for shoes from this collaboration. The all-black upper ties the color palette together.
The Primeknit mesh and soft fabrics used for the upper ensure that the design is breathable and comfortable to wear for long. The chunky midsole is made from high-quality rubber which makes this a perfect outdoor shoe as well.
3. adidas Forum 84 High Worn in ‘White Blue’
The distressed look has been mainstreamed in denims for several years now and has been creeping into other apparel segments, with patrons paying top dollar for this grungy aesthetic. The adidas Forum 84 shoes are high-tops that prominently feature this aesthetic. The muted white and intermittent details in bright blue allow the worn-look to shine through. The detailing extends down to the sole, giving more character to the design. The design is reminiscent of court shoes worn by kids and young people on the daily, plausibly as a reminder of the roots of the brand. Benefits Of Winter Inner Wears For Men
4. adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 in ‘Pure Oat’
If you are looking to get on the white sneaker trend, the newest edition of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 in Pure Oat is the shoe for you. This new color variant is an all-white shoe. The monochrome champions a clean design and plays around with textures to add complexity to it. The upper is made in breathable Primeknit mesh, with varying texture patterns. The laces are also in consonance with the all-white colorway. The translucent midsole gives a futuristic feel to the silhouette, which is a great example of the innovative design aesthetic that the Yeezy-Adidas collab promotes.
5. adidas Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runner
This pair is Yeezy’s take on the well-known and well-loved sneaker silhouette. While it is one of Yeezy’s less edgy silhouettes, it still produces a new understanding of the classic sneaker design. The pointed, almost jet-like silhouette produces a sharp look for any outfit. The dominant colors are the classic trifecta of black, white and grey, with detailing done in interesting neon hues. They add a splash of color to the otherwise understated shoe, without distorting the minimalist aesthetic synonymous with Yeezy. Adidas will be restocking this design in March, which the brand is bringing back on popular demand.
