Bad Bunny finally dropped “Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana,” his fifth studio album. To celebrate the occasion, the Puerto Rican superstar has been a lot more visible on social media, going as far as releasing his adidas Response CL “Paso Fino” collaboration ahead of its global launch.

Touted as “official merch” on his Instagram, the sneaker has been teased since April. Since then, Benito Antonio Martinez Ocasio had been spotted wearing the brown and purple pair out-and-about, leading fans to speculate about the colors’ inspiration. The 29-year-old and his Three Stripes family finally gave the world some insight behind their latest Response CL in late September by releasing the muted sneaker exclusively at horse and Western attire shops in Puerto Rico, Spain, Mexico, and the U.S. Before the month closed, adidas even invited Sneaker News to Upstate New York for a special activation that further cemented the shoe’s cowboy concept.

Sonically “Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana” differs from the “Ecru Tint”-colored, Western-inspired pair. Yet, the sneaker complements everything from the album cover to accompanying merch well. Bad Bunny’s next adidas sneaker is also being offered in sizing for Kids (SKU: ID8508) and Toddlers (SKU: ID8510), a first for Benito and the German sportswear brand.

An official press release from the Three Stripes mentions that the “Paso Fino” concept reflects Martinez Ocasio’s “unique, elegant, and confident walk,” one that he puts into action whenever venturing into the unknown. Campaign material present the “unknown” as the desert, a setting that propels any visitor outside of their comfort zone. Those who see beyond the surface level, however, are often rewarded with revelations of something new, common occurrences for Bad Bunny. The shades of brown nod to arid land, while curvilinear detailing throughout the “Paso Fino” adidas shoes evoke mountains and sand dunes, frontiers for those brave enough to tackle new territories.



“How far does your vision reach?” asks Benito while his brother Bernie, dressed as a cowboy, traverses the desert in a short film made for the Response CL. “If you can break down the barriers and cross all the borders, you can leave your own mark.”

The Bad Bunny “Paso Fino” adidas sneakers release via the adidas CONFIRMED app on Saturday October 28th. The pair is priced at $160 USD.
