After leaked documents told us that Korn and clothing/shoe brand Adidas would be collaborating—three decades after Korn released “A.D.I.D.A.S.”—earlier this year, the partnership has been officially confirmed according to a press release from Adidas. The line was inspired by Life is Peachy and includes t-shirts, a hoodie and two tracksuits, plus footwear options. Check out the press release below; the items will be available on October 27.
“This October, adidas Originals and KoRn join forces to celebrate a trailblazing legacy with a new collaborative partnership and collection. With an enduring and potent, cultural impact that extends far beyond music, KoRn has continued to influence styles and scenes across the globe.
“When pioneering California-based alt metal band, KoRn, emerged onto the scene 30 years ago, they broke away from the genre’s established aesthetic codes, and paved the way for a new generation of fans by sporting classic Three Stripes adidas tracksuits. Never ceasing to challenge normal convention, KoRn and the Trefoil have maintained a long standing relationship over the years through an authentic connection that was later immortalized by the band’s 1996 song, ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.'”
“The inaugural adidas Originals and KoRn collaborative collection features a selection of bold styles inspired by their 1996 album, Life Is Peachy. The collection comprises two graphic t-shirts, a Three Stripes hoodie with the band’s logo on the front, and two signature takes on the quintessential adidas Originals tracksuit – one in black with white accents and one with purple sequins.
“The footwear collection features a custom take on the chunky Campus 00s silhouette and a daring update to the Supermodified sneaker. Both looks boast a suite of unique details including graphic insoles, spare laces, KoRn logos, a guitar pick keychain, and a co-branded box.”
