adidas Originals and Donald Glover officially launched Donald Glover Presents a range of new products, alongside the premiere of a series of short films starring Glover and award-winning Actress-Comedian and Executive Producer Mo’Nique, with a cameo by professional skateboarder Na-Kel Smith.
The films, written by Jamal Olori of Royalty with Sam Jay, bring to life a story of defiance, subversion, and creative expression. Embracing acts of fate as opportunities for honesty, growth, and understanding, the films show that worn shoes are not merely “dirty”; they are a reflection of one’s personal experiences. The series is directed by Ibra Ake of Royalty, supported by creative consultant, Sing J Lee of Mamag Studios.
Donald Glover Presents reimagines three classic adidas styles, the Nizza, the Continental 80, and the Lacombe, in subtle, tone-on-tone white canvas. With a focus on the personal narrative that worn-in sneakers can hold, and the wealth of experiences they bear, the collection is inspired by subtle imperfections.
The Donald Glover Presents film series released on April 18th and footwear will be available globally on April 26th.
