Nike was the first major sneaker company to branch out into skateboarding footwear and apparel, and Nike SB was such a huge hit, Three Stripes followed suit and established adidas Skate. And now with the Swoosh adding snowboarding as the ‘other SB’, it looks like we might see more majors carving up the slopes. New Balance and 686 have been working together for some time, and now it’s perhaps the biggest name in all of snowboarding working together with adidas Originals.
The Burton x adidas Originals Superstar features a clean-as-can-be navy and white colorup that’s spruced up with a brown leather tongue tag, whereas their Vulc Mid goes the panda bear route. Both feature D-ring eyelets for that rugged mountain look, but the premium suede and leather construction is quite smooth. It doesn’t stop there, as adidas and Burton has also produced a slick line of apparel that combines adidas’ classic styling with the surf/snow street-look, with jackets, tees, thermals, trackpants, and more with a special adidas Originals x Burton Glühwein label and other unique branding touches. Check out the entire Burton x adidas Originals Footwear and Apparel collection after the jump below and stick with Sneaker News for more adidas Originals collaborations.
