Sneaker boutique solebox are the first ones to put their own spin on one of 2018’s most celebrated adidas models. Both in its design and presentation, the solebox x adidas Yung-1 SMU takes inspirations from the falcon.
Featuring an eggshell colored base with dark grey suede overlays, the upper commemorates the predatory bird’s plumage. Green nylon elements on the heel and tongue continue the concept and remind of a falcon’s piercing eyes. Orange accents on the white sole unit then finalize the look.
To pay homage to the Falcon Dorf silhouette that the Yung-1 is based on, solebox came up with a great lookbook concept. The four sneaker photographers @agathapowa, @runnerwally, @massimo.taylor and @kanescans took it back to the 90s for a trip to the shoe’s era of origin. Equipped with analog cameras, they captured the SMU alongside a living Falcon to create an outstanding composition on film. Feast your eyes on the lookbook pics below and read on for more details on this drop.
