Find out exactly when you can get your hands on the sneakers - and from which stockists.
Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, is collaborating with adidas Originals to create a very creative sneaker. The exclusive pictures have been shared by Sydney sneaker-head Jemeul Wong on Instagram and we are so thankful, because it looks seriously cool!
It looks like it's inspired by the Nizza shoe, the low-top sneaker has a distressed canvas in an off-white shade that looks almost like a pale yellow. The laces are blue and white, and the signature three stripes run along either side of the shoe. It all sits on a thick rubber midsole which looks like it might give a little bit of height to all the short people out there (me included). We love the contrast and creativity put into the shoe. From the off-white canvas to the bright white platform and laces, it definitely doesn't look like something we would usually see from adidas.

When can you get your hands on the sneakers? Boy oh boy, it's so soon and we cannot contain our excitement! The official global release date is 26 April at all official adidas stockists.
Back in September 2018, the two announced the collaboration was on the way. A cartoon video was released, depicting Donald trying on a secret pair of sneakers. Funnily enough, the ones in the video look very similar to the sneak peek so it seems like it could be pretty legitimate to us. There was no date put into place for the release, but it seems like we can definitely expect to see the Donald Glover x adidas Originals later this year.
The description of the video says: "Built on a foundation of mutual creative respect, adidas Originals and Donald Glover will look beyond the confines of traditional collaborations, allowing the partnership to be inspired by limitless creativity."
It's clear that Donald Glover has been working pretty hard with the sportswear giant. And from the exclusive pictures we have seen, it seems like we can expect big things from the creative collaboration.
