Talk of a possible Stone Island x Adidas project surfaced this week when leaked images depicted what some took to be an upcoming NMD featuring the Italian brand's compass logo. It's not happening though—the shoe in question actually first appeared online in July, with the complete Adidas product images showing no sign of Stone Island branding.
Those images, shown here, look to be of a standard inline NMD release. What's more, the crosshair-looking icons that appear sparsely on the shoe's upper aren't even that close to Stone Island's logo.
Stone Island has worked with Adidas before, releasing a Samba in 2009. The brand has also created sneakers for New Balance and Nike, most recently working with the latter via ongoing collaborations that include footwear and apparel.
