Afropunk x adidas' Triple Platforum Hi Sneaker Is an Ode to Self-Expression

Designed with a stacked sole to give you extra height.

Afropunk, a platform dedicated to building spaces that empower the Black community, has partnered up with adidas to reimagine the Triple Platforum sneaker.

“What has brought Afropunk and adidas together is a set of shared values of wanting to provide a platform for young, black creative voices to express themselves freely through art, fashion and music. Partnering with adidas is a special moment for us,” said Anita Asante, head of global strategic partnerships at Afropunk, in a press release. “Our community continues to move culture forward with ingenuity and resistance, and this year we will celebrate the innovators across our global community of tastemakers who are creating a new world before your eyes.”

With black as the dominant shade, the footwear style’s upper is crafted from supple leather and features the sportswear brand’s iconic Three Stripes and Trefoil logo on the tongue. Elsewhere, a touch of white can be found above the triple-stacked rubber sole. Rounding off the design are the padded ankle straps and the buckles over the laces

Check out the accompanying  ”Live the F@%k Out Loud” campaign below starring recording artist Junglepussy, non-binary TikTok content creator Antoni Bumba, and bionic model and singer-songwriter, Marsha Elle. Afropunk x adidas’ Triple Platforum retails for $150 USD online.
