Traveling is a sport. Game on. This collaboration between adidas and lifestyle brand Oyster Holdings presents The World Travelers Cup, a global travel challenge inspired by world sporting events. These Samba shoes are made of leather with an authentic rubber outsole. On the heel is an Oyster logo detail.
A new take on the adidas Samba OG football trainer rounds out the collection, appearing in three eye-catching primary colorways: blue, yellow and red. Crafted from premium leather and ripstop nylon, the uppers feature gold Oyster Holdings branding above the three stripes, as well as Oyster Holdings logo, the multi-colored “International Sportsman” icon, trefoil on the heel, and the “World Traveler’s Cup” logo branding on the tongue. Each pair comes with seven pairs of brightly colored laces for an added blast of vibrant, country/team-inspired variations, while the passport stamps on the sockliner are a further subtle celebration of the global Oyster Holdings traveler.
The adidas Originals x Oyster Holdings apparel offering is dominated by team-style matching track suits and ‘kits’. Rather than drawing on one single sport for their imagined cup, Oyster Holdings plucks references from across a range of pursuits. An engineered polo shirt and matching shorts allude to the soccer stylings of the eighties and nineties, rendered here in bright shades of green, red and orange. Contrasting white grossgrain stripes appear on the underarms of the polos and run down the front of each leg on the shorts, while both feature the Trefoil-featuring golden logo designed specifically for the collection. A blue and white nylon track top with mesh paneling and Oyster Holdings by adidas branding takes vintage Olympic team-garb as its starting point and is accompanied by matching track pants. The upper half of the tracksuit also comes in a bright red colorway. A single, striking piece of outerwear features in the form of a transformable, packable jacket made from water repellent fabric. Its extendable hem offers added protection against the elements, while its ability to pack down into a bag makes it ideal for journeys between varying climates. A similar approach is taken to the collection’s duffle bag.
