Kid Cudi and adidas Originals are back with two more takes on his signature Vadawam 326 sneaker, delivering the silhouette in “Cloud White/Orange Tint/Dark Brown” and “Mesa/Core Black/Hazy Copper.”
The first round of Vadawam 326 sneakers came in December last year, and very little was said since that inaugural drop. Now, however, the Man on the Moon and the Three Stripes revive the style in colorways that are perfect for the months ahead, with the former being right for summer and the latter sorting you out for fall and winter.
In “Cloud White/Orange Tint/Dark Brown,” the shoe continues the sort of retro-futuristic style that’s informed by Sci-Fi, NASA, and the ’90s. The layered upper features a “Cloud White” and cream leather base that is overlayed with “Dark Brown” leather and suede components making up the side panels, vamp, and tongue straps, while more cream works the TPU heel clip. Hits of pink and blue on the rope lacing system and on the lining brighten things up and bring in the retro feel, which is further accentuated by the digital clock-like “326” stamp on the collar and the bright pink collar eyelet.
As for the “Mesa/Core Black/Hazy Copper” look, everything is more muted and the focus on materials feels even more premium and considered. For example, lush suede overlays the “Core Black” leather base on various sections such as the collar, vamp, toe, and side panels, and details such as the “326” stamp are now embossed into the suede rather than stamped on. An icy teal outsole contrasts all of this, but does a good job at highlighting the Torsion system in the sole unit below.
As of writing, these Kid Cudi x adidas Originals Vadawam 326s in “Cloud White/Orange Tint/Dark Brown” and “Mesa/Core Black/Hazy Copper” are due to release exclusively on adidas’ regional Australian site. Arriving on June 24, the sneakers are set to cost $290 AUS (around $220 USD) each. Take a closer look at the pairs above.
