Last month, Adidas answered the call of the "dad shoe" trend by debuting the Yung-1—a chunky low-top silhouette that takes cues from 1997's Falcon Dorf. Fast forward a few weeks later and a new rendition of the model has surfaced that might signal an upcoming exclusive with German boutique Solebox.
The pair was spotted at Berlin Fashion Week on the feet of Solebox General Manager Aljoscha Kondratiew. The previously unseen colorway utilizes a predominantly cream-colored suede upper with additional grey hairy suede panels accenting the design. Other details on this premium iteration include a slight pop of color via a green Trefoil logo on the tongue and green hit on the heel, as well as gum rubber sections on the outsole.
While there's no obvious Solebox branding to signify a collab or exclusive rather than simply a never-before-seen Adidas Yung-1, a store employee debuting the pair could certainly indicate some type of involvement from the German shop. At the moment, there is no further release information regarding this colorway.
UPDAE (08/16): As expected, Solebox has confirmed that this Yung-1 is in fact a store exclusive. With an emphasis on presentation, the German retailer tapped four photographers (@agathapowa, @kanescans, @massimo.taylor and @runnerwally) to unveil the shoes. Not stopping there, Solebox took the Yung-1's Falcon Dorf inspiration literally by bringing in an actual falcon for the shoot.
