Pan dulce (mexican sweet bread) and cafecito (coffee) will always be a perfect way to start (or end) your day. That said, we never thought we’d see the day where adidas drops a sneaker inspired by a mexican sweet bread. Now up for grabs, here is an official look at the adidas Superstar Concha.
For those who may not know, a concha is a traditional Mexican sweet bread roll (pan dulce) that gets it name from their round shape and their striped, seashell-like appearance. The adidas Superstar Concha pack include three iterations of the model arriving in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavors. Being that “concha” translates to “shell,” the adidas Superstar is the perfect canvas for this concept. All three flavors of the sneaker features fuzzy sherpa uppers that mimic the texture of the pastry, along with marbled patterns ingrained into the design. Taking a closer look you will see that the medial and rear portion of the sneaker are given additional piping, whereas the medial side is laced with embroidered Three-Stripes branding. Finishing details include the adidas Trefoil branding and lettering on tongues, back tabs, and insoles. Only question left to ask is, what’s your favorite flavor from the pack? We’re going to have to go with vanilla!
Sadly, these have not arrived stateside, but the adidas Superstar Concha pack made its debut in Mexico today exclusively via adidas México and select retailers for the retail price of $2,399 MXN (approximately $136 USD). Stay tuned for a potential stateside release.
