adidas has long been celebrated for its ability to blend music, culture, and sports through its footwear collaborations, breathing new life into archival silhouettes with each release. The SL 72, a model that has enjoyed a renaissance with recent collaborations, including a notable partnership with Wales Bonner, is set to receive a special makeover that pays tribute to one of music's most iconic figures. According to Brendan Dunne of Complex, adidas has joined forces with the estate of Bob Marley to introduce the first official Bob Marley x adidas sneaker, a fitting homage to the reggae legend whose influence transcends music, extending into the realms of activism, culture, and beyond.

The Bob Marley x adidas SL 72 captures the essence of Marley's legacy while staying true to the original design of the retro runner. The sneaker features a navy-based upper that serves as a canvas for suede details on the toe and heel, adding a touch of luxury and durability. The midfoot and eyestays are constructed from leather and nylon, balancing support and breathability.

Bob Marley's signature in gold on the lateral heel is a standout feature, a subtle yet powerful nod to the artist's enduring influence. The tongue tag is adorned with a portrait of Marley, further cementing the collaborative spirit of this release. The design is completed with a green and cream foam midsole, offering comfort and a nod to the Rastafarian colors often associated with Marley, and a burgundy-colored rubber outsole that adds contrast and traction.

The Bob Marley x adidas SL 72 will release in Summer 2024 through adidas and select retailers online and in-store. As of this writing, the retail price has yet to be confirmed.
