The Unheardof x adidas Rivalry Low Tells a Sentimental Tale

Venturing beyond the current Samba obsession, adidas fans now have something new and heartfelt to look forward to with the Unheardof x Adidas Rivalry Low collaboration. This unique partnership involves Cincinnati’s own Unheardof store, merging fashion and a profound tribute to the founder’s personal journey. From his humble beginnings to crafting his very own signature shoe, it has been revealed in two standout colourways that will, no doubt, tug on some heartstrings in the process.

Infusing the Rivalry Low with a dose of nostalgia, the silhouette boasts a corduroy base with detailed flower patterns that will take you back to your grandmother’s living room sofa. “Mesa” and “Purple” make up the two distinctive colour options, both exuding their own vintage charm. The old school aesthetic doesn’t stop there, as they’re both wrapped in tumbled leather overlays that keep in line with the retro furniture theme.

“Bright Red” accents on the tongue tag, heel badge, and iconic Three Stripes add a vibrant touch, while metallic gold hardware weaves in a dash of luxury, enhancing the ’70s-inspired allure. Perched on chunky gum rubber midsoles, these sneakers nod to their basketball roots while ensuring comfort and resilience, making them perfect for daily wear.

At its core, this collection tells a story of resilience and dedication. Philip Lipschutz, the mind behind Unheardof, unveils a journey that led him from sleep on his mother’s old couch to working with the adidas team. The Unheardof x adidas Rivalry Low, or Chapter 2 as he calls it, is set to drop very soon, so make sure you keep it locked at Captain Creps for all of the latest updates.
