Kith and adidas Soccer partner to create a multidimensional collection themed around Kith’s two soccer clubs – the Cobras and Flamingos. Kith worked with adidas to modify and redesign their most elite soccer apparel and footwear. A full range has been designed for both teams, including on- and off-pitch apparel, home and away kits, and all-new footwear for street, turf, and grass. The on-pitch apparel includes full kits, warm-up tops, goalie jerseys, compression tops and bottoms, and socks. Off-pitch apparel includes a track suit, a velour suit, and tee shirts. The footwear encompasses adidas’ iconic COPA Mundial silhouettes and their new disruptive ACE 17+ Purecontrol footwear.
The Cobras represent Kith’s hometown of New York, and compete in the Bowery Premier League. A lethal color palette of black, white, red, and yellow is utilized throughout, while subtle snakeskin patterns speak to the team’s logo. Other branding details include asymmetrical Three Stripes logos, a Strike First Strike Fast motto, and a twist on the Kith logo using the adidas font. The footwear offering is comprised of the COPA 17 cleat, the Mundial Team TR, and the COPA 17 UltraBOOST. The COPA 17 cleat features a kangaroo leather upper and a chrome copper cleat plate. The COPA Mundial Turf is a brand new silhouette that combines a kangaroo leather Mundial upper with adidas’s all-new EVA turf midsole unit. The COPA 17 UltraBOOST is also a new model that features a kangaroo leather upper with a debossed snakeskin pattern that sits atop an UtraBOOST midsole.
The Kith x adidas Soccer Collection releases on Friday, June 2nd, at all Kith shops and Kith.com.
