Continuing their partnership, Jonah Hill and adidas Originals are back with another collab. The latest collection between the German athletic brand and the actor-slash-streetwear-lover celebrates his 90s upbringing in Los Angeles. Next to a vintage-inspired takes on the classic Samba, the Jonah Hill x adidas release also features matching premium apparel.
Since it’s Jonah’s favorite Three Stripes model, the Samba unsurprisingly takes the spotlight here. That’s why the sneaker arrives in three different colorways of Mineral Green, Noble Maroon and Tech Copper. Each style features tonal full grain leather and suede uppers with gum rubber outsoles. Embroidered handwriting in tonal neon hits and fat laces then complete the sneaker side of the collab.
Moving to apparel, the collection includes three premium adidas pieces: the JH BB Short, JH Chino Pant and JH Puffer Jacket. The BB Short represents Jonah’s take on classic basketball shorts, using a heavyweight mesh material and a knit waistband. For a less sporty look, the chino pants feature a twill weave construction with an elasticated waistband. Last but not least, the puffer jacket combines premium down padding with rip-stop polyester for a winter-ready staple in your wardrobe. While all apparel pieces come in three colors that match the Sambas, the b-ball shorts and chinos are also available in adidas exclusive off-white and black colorways.
DID YOU KNOW?
Jonah’s love for the Samba is well-documented. When he was a guest on Complex Sneaker Shopping in 2018, the actor even described it as “the best shoe in the world”. Furthermore, the 36-year-old remembered wearing Sambas everyday when he was younger, skating in them and still rocking them today.
