PS5 Got Nike Shoes, So Xbox Seems to Be Getting Adidas Shoes
Last week PlayStation revealed a pair of PlayStation 5 themed sneakers with Nike, and now it looks like Xbox is partnering with Adidas on its own console-themed shoes.
Complex cites “sources familiar with the upcoming collaboration” in its report, which offers a sample of an Xbox-branded Adidas shoe. The brand deal remains unannounced, but Complex says that the schedule of the collaboration will see four Xbox-themed shoes coming this year, with more potentially planned for 2022.
The 2021 shoes mentioned will all reportedly be variants of Adidas’ popular Forum basketball silhouette. As can be seen in the image of a work-in-progress sample above, the shoe has multiple Xbox details, including a distinct logo on the side and a lattice trim around the heel reminiscent of the top vent of the Xbox Series X. Complex’s report notes that the shoes will arrive “in black and green boxes with Xbox logos on them.”
Sony’s Paul George 5 PlayStation 5 sneakers have their own smart details, including embedded PlayStation face buttons and logos on the tongue of the shoe. In other gaming sneaker news, Marvel and Adidas collaborated back in November of 2020 to reveal a pair of Adidas shoes as part of a promotion for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
