KoRn, the trailblazers of the nu metal sound, not only broke boundaries in music but also left an indelible mark on the fashion scene at the turn of the century. And now, in an exciting collaboration with adidas, they are set to celebrate their influential past, present, and future as a new generation discovers the power of their sound.
We can’t talk about KoRn’s fashion influence without mentioning their frontman, Johnathon Davis. Known for his stage presence, he rocked a purple sequined tracksuit with the iconic adidas stripes running down his arms and legs. It was this bold and casual look, reminiscent of hip-hop fashion trends, that transformed the perception of the nu metal genre. Gone were the days of leather and ripped denim; instead, a street-friendly aesthetic took its place.
Now, the eagerly awaited KoRn x adidas Originals collection is finally here, and it doesn’t disappoint. On the footwear front, we have the Campus 00s and Supermodified sneakers, both adorned with artwork from KoRn’s 1996 album “Life Is Peachy.” But that’s not all – the collection also features a co-branded shoebox, a guitar pick hangtag, and KoRn branding, encapsulating the essence of their music in every detail.
Accompanying the footwear is an apparel capsule that will make any KoRn fan weak at the knees. From graphic t-shirts to hoodies and even two full tracksuits, including a remake of the iconic purple sequined edition, this collection is a dream come true.
Mark your calendars, sneakerheads, because the official release date for the KoRn x adidas Originals collection is October 27th, 2023. You can get your hands on these must-have sneakers on adidas.com, the Confirmed App, and select retailers. Prepare to rock out in style!
