Copenhagen-based Naked is releasing a collaborative project with adidas Consortium. As part of adidas Consortium’s world tour, Naked and adidas are bringing the ‘Waves Pack’, comprised of an UltraBoost and a Samba, in aqueous tones. According to Naked, this projects goes back to the heart of the fashion brand with its signature color palette that is inspired by the ocean that surrounds us.
Many will see the UltraBoost as the stand out silhouette from this pack but just look at that adidas Samba; it has been treated to turquoise ostrich leather, gets a Consortium insole, and sits atop a gum bottom. The UltraBoost will receive an equally aquatic turquoise woolen upper, aqua Consortium insole, white Boost midsole, and a Continental rubber outsole. According to Naked, both silhouettes play with texture and material, the Samba with leather, the UB with knit.
The Naked x adidas Consortium ‘Waves Pack’ will release exclusively at Naked on December 16. The UltraBoost will retail for DKK 1,350 (approximately $195) while the Samba is set at DKK 1,100 (approx. $160). This pack will hit select retailers worldwide on December 23 so we may get more specific pricing in USD soon. Additionally, according to the sizing charts on Naked’s online store, this release looks like it is only for the ladies, but we are waiting to confirm with the brand.
