Over the last few years, Bad Bunny has gone from local crowd-drawer in Puerto Rico to international superstar. And while his music has helped him cross borders and transcend language, the 27-year-old’s adidas sneaker partnership will surely keep him relevant long-after he decides to stop crooning.

Following the success of his adidas Forum collaborations, Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio has turned his attention to a much more obscure model within the Three Stripes roster: the Response CL. Reintroduced in early September 2020, the old-school trainer delivers a chunky, “dad shoe”-appropriate aesthetic. The brand’s Response and adiPrene cushioning take on an “aged” look, while breathable mesh done in an off-white color are overlaid by a bevy of matte white and shimmering metallic silver overlays. Paneling in the former tone follow no “rhyme or reason,” appearing in random shapes that ultimately “drip” onto the sole unit. Given that the first Bad Bunny adidas shoe drew inspiration from coffee, it’s been rumored that this latest pair is inspired by ice cream. Lastly, “El Ojo” (“The Eye”) makes a return on the heel; sock-liners, dust bags and shoe boxes feature co-branding from the burgeoning partnership.

Enjoy official images of Benito’s Response CL ahead, and anticipate a release via the adidas CONFIRMED app in the coming months.
