adidas Originals Collaborates with AriZona Iced Tea
adidas Originals and AriZona Iced Tea reunite for another dose of summer vibes, with a slew of men’s and women’s collaborative editions, this time turning their attention to the Continental Vulc silhouette and adilette slide. Comprising 10 shoes in total, the collaboration takes inspiration from AriZona and their four most popular flavours: Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey, Lemon, Mucho Mango, and Watermelon. Each shoe is adorned with AriZona’s distinctive branding and constructed from premium materials.
Four iterations of the Continental Vulc model, priced respectively at RM420 ($90 / 90€), each pay homage to a different drink flavour. AriZona’s Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey can is applied to a black and turquoise version, constructed from nubuck with embroidered canvas panels. A whilte, full-grain leather edition references AriZona’s Lemon flavour, featuring contrast turquoise elements and finished with all-over embroidered graphics.
AriZona’s Mucho Mango and Watermelon flavours are referenced in yellow and red colourways, respectively. Each features a nubuck and canvas construction, with all-over embroidered graphics referencing the flavour’s original can’s design.
Next, two women's-exclusive models, priced at RM420 ($90 / 90€) and inspired by Lemon and Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey flavours, lean into AriZona’s iconic colour palette. The Lemon iteration contrasts black nubuck with canvas and is printed with a vibrant geometric pattern taken from the can design. A pink and turquoise version references the Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey can - featuring an all-over print of the flavour’s cherry blossom pattern - accented by bright pink nubuck panels.
Each of the adidas Originals by AriZona Continental Vulc models feature collaborative branding details on the tongue and heel tab, as well as four sets of laces and metallic lace tips and each are finished with a classic vulcanised rubber cupsole with heel details as well as special edition packaging.
To accompany the shoes, four collaborative colourways of adidas iconic adilette slides have also been created, priced respectively at RM170 ($35 / 35€), each paying homage to those four flavours. Each slide features graphic details inspired by AriZona’s branding, rounded off with a woven collaborative label on the sockliner.
