In a remarkable collaboration, Adidas Originals and KORN are teaming up this October to celebrate a groundbreaking legacy with a unique collection
Three decades ago, the pioneering California-based alternative metal band defied the established aesthetic norms of their genre, setting the stage for a new generation of fans while sporting the iconic three-striped Adidas tracksuits. This partnership between KORN and the Trefoil brand has been enduring, marked by a genuine connection, and even immortalized in the band’s 1996 song “A.D.I.D.A.S.“
The inaugural Adidas Originals and KORN collaborative collection takes inspiration from the band’s 1996 album “Life Is Peachy.” The collection features a bold selection of styles, including two graphic t-shirts, a three-stripes hoodie emblazoned with the band’s logo on the front, and two unique interpretations of the quintessential Adidas Originals tracksuit. These include one in black with white accents and another adorned with purple sequins.
The footwear range introduces a customized version of the chunky Campus 00s silhouette and a bold update to the Supermodified sneaker. Both styles come with a host of distinctive details, such as graphic insoles, spare laces, KORN logos, a guitar pick keychain, and a co-branded box.
This extraordinary collection is set to be released on October 27 and will be available for purchase on adidas.com and through select retailers.
It’s worth noting that Kerrang! magazine reported in 2021 that although Adidas provided KORN with free products in the late 1990s, they were unwilling to formalize a proper partnership. Consequently, KORN signed a deal with Puma in 1998.
