As the man behind the edgy skate brand Fucking Awesome (FA), Jason Dill's forays into sneaker collaborations have become hotly anticipated events. This year has seen Dill (and FA) team up with adidas to breathe fresh life into the classic Samba silhouette, not once but twice. Riding high on the success of these recent releases, the skateboarder and entrepreneur is back to unveil a third iteration of this beloved model, this time armed with a gleaming patent leather finish and a timeless color scheme.
This iteration of the Samba is a masterclass in striking, yet understated design. The upper beautifully showcases the interplay between the pristine white and contrasting black, resulting in a silhouette that exudes both elegance and edge. Metallic gold branding for Jason Dill graces the tongue, acting as a stamp of approval from the skate legend himself. The patent leather panels wrap the shoe in a reflective sheen, ensuring it stands out in any crowd. Complementing this glossy exterior is the soft leather sockliner, which promises comfort with every step. Rounding off the design is the semi-translucent clear rubber midsole and outsole.
The Jason Dill x adidas Samba Patent Leather White Black Gold will release October 21, 2023, through adidas, Fucking Awesome, and select retailers both online and in-store. Available in men’s sizes, the retail price has yet to be announced.
