Pro Skaters Maité Steenhoudt and Nora Vasconcellos Rework adidas' Samba and Gazelle
The pair of collaborative kicks release later this month.
The Samba ADV by Maité features a black suede upper accented with white and red top-stitching. adidas’ Three Stripes are overlaid in white suede at the lateral, detailing that complements matching cream heel panels. Lined in red suede, the toe of the shoe gradually reveals hints of color with wear.
The Gazelle ADV by Nora is a brighter counterpart to Maité’s Samba. Arriving in white leather, the sneaker bears texturally contrasting suede panels at the toe and heel. Lavender Three Stripes add subtle hits of color, while foil stamps reading “Gilda” and “Nora” at the lateral provide shine. Original text and graphics by Vasconcellos are printed on the shoe’s colorful insole.
The adidas x Maité Steenhoudt Samba ADV and adidas x Nora Vasconcellos Gazelle ADV release on March 16 at the adidas website. The former will retail for $100 USD and the latter will price at $85 USD.
