Country x Wales Bonner - Core Black/Core Black

It's with a warm heart we once again welcome the phenomenal work of Grace Wales Bonner. Through her ongoing partnership with adidas, Grace creates her beautiful aesthetic through a deeply considered practice. Distinctly drawing from the culture of Burkina Faso in West Africa, this collection continues her research into music and photography from the 1970s and 80s.

The adidas Country was introduced smack bang in the 70's and became somewhat of a mainstay among the be-flared youth of the clubs and hangouts. Originally designed for cross training, their sturdy design and grippy outsoles made them perfect for all-night shenanigans. Later these would go on to become a cult classic in Japan.

Grace Wales Bonner reworks this classic style with elegant details, including her now-signature blanket stitch along the tongue and heel. Smooth leather set against rough suede in tonal black leaves only the interplay of light and texture to create contrast, accented only by the sparkle of gold and striking white stitches. It's all topped with a red insole that beckons your feet in, like a red carpet, to dance the night away.
