Adidas will release a collaboration with nu-metal band Korn in October, according to an internal Adidas document viewed by Complex. The Korn X Adidas collab consists of two sneakers—the Campus 00s and the Supermodified—and seven pieces of apparel. Korn, whose penchant for Adidas is practically legendary, even immortalized this affection with their single ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.,’ which lends itself to one of the most authentic collaborations in recent times.
This synergistic collaboration between Korn and Adidas epitomizes the burgeoning fusion of the musical and sneaker realms, with ardent fans already on the edge of their seats for the collection’s fall release.
The sneakers ooze an aura of mutual respect between the band and the brand, with Adidas and Korn logos tastefully alternating on the tongue and heel tab. The Three Stripes, a quintessential Adidas hallmark, grace the medial and lateral sides, with an intriguing twist on the Supermodified, as the stripes ascend towards the shell toe.
A nostalgic nod to Korn’s iconic typography is apparent, as ‘Campus’ branding on the lateral side is emblazoned in a font reminiscent of Korn’s logo. Delving into the finer details, the insole is adorned with the artwork from Korn’s ‘Life is Peachy’ album cover, complemented by the Adidas branding.
But that’s not all. A line-up of co-branded apparel is in the pipeline, promising a range of tees, hoodies, and tracksuits that echo the aesthetic of the sneaker collection.
Retail prices are pegged at $130 for the Campus 00s and and $140, for the Supermodified, both of which are expected to arrive on October 27th.
