First, the adidas Sambas. Now, Pusha T is out here teasing another adidas shoe.
While performing at Coachella — which he renamed “Cokechella” for his set — Pusha took the stage in a crisp white look custom-made by Bally, paired with adidas Supernova Cushion 7 sneakers.
In detailed looks revealed on our cover star‘s Instagram, the shoe is realized in realized in shades of icy blue, white, and black. Varying materials comprise the upper, including mesh underlays. At the same time, an adiPRENE sole provides a semi-chunky look to finish things off below.
The shoe undoubtedly oozed cool dad vibes for the Almost Dry artist, who is indeed, well, a cool dad.
On the heel, we noticed that familiar “Thorn” branding again, which also appeared on Pusha’s “exclusive” Samba shoes unveiled in January during Paris Fashion Week.
“Thorn” is believed to be Pusha T’s line under adidas (like adidas Hu for Pharrell’s Human Race), with the moniker playing on the musician’s real name, Terrence LeVarr Thornton. Thorn. Thornton. Get it?
Inking a deal with the German sportswear brand in 2014, Pusha has dropped plenty of collabs with adidas, including Ozweegos and spins on Damian Lillard’s signature Dame 6 shoes. He’s also dabbled in adidas EQT line quite a bit, having released Support Ultra Primeknit and Guidance ’93 shoes.
Neither adidas nor the musician has mentioned anything regarding official releases of the Sambas and Supernovas as worn by Pusha. However, should they see the light of day beyond Pusha’s feet, they would certainly arrive right on time for the ongoing Samba and dad shoe crazes.
As for those hoping for a drop, let’s pray the teased shoes are — if I may — almost dry, and prepping to see public releases soon.
