We’re welcoming a brand new silhouette from adidas Originals to the scotts family. Introducing: with the Sobako, landing on site 04.10.18 at 8am.

Earlier this year, adidas Originals released the Kamanda; a next-generation silhouette with design roots in Three-Stripes history. That blend of old and new is repeated in adidas Originals brand new silhouette that translates the brand’s football tradition into a fashion-focused silhouette– the Sobakov. Featuring design underpinnings reminiscent of vintage football models like the Samba. The adidas Sobakov puts a spin on a well-tried formula.

Sobakov’s silhouette’s textile upper features discreet smooth leather details on the tongue and heel cap. A curved Three Stripes pattern also graces both sidewalls and wraps around the shoe’s heel.
Nevertheless, the most notable element undoubtedly is the tooling. The overstated gum sole serves as a contrast to the sleek upper, while wavelike patterns adds some powerful design dynamics. To round things out, the rose-colored insoles receive a special adidas Sobakov branding in blue.

Sobakov takes inspiration from the collective spirit of terrace style – a style we’re already on board with, to create an everyday silhouette inspired by a sport that unites groups around the world. Blending distinctive elements from previous silhouettes with a progressive design and modern street tooling. These are not one to be sniffed at, we assure you. The incredible and flawless detail shows the passion – the blood, sweat and tears into every stitch.

The shoe’s knitted upper features decorative stitching lines taken from iconic adidas silhouettes. Also detailed with the classic three stripe mark, wrapped around the heel and then up across the sides, the final touches of the shoes include a slightly asymmetrical lacing system and branding details, placed atop a gum rubber midsole.
