adidas is no stranger to collaborations, with the German activewear brand routinely joining forces with other like-minded outfits to deliver limited-edition capsules and products. The company’s latest collab, however, is unquestionably one of its more unique joint efforts, teaming up with Victorinox to deliver a limited-edition pair of sneakers and an accompanying Swiss Army Knife.
Starting with the shoe, adidas and Victorinox have redesigned the former brand’s EQT 93 sneaker, applying more than just a unique colorway. Boasting different designs on the left and right shoe, the adidas x Victorinox EQT 93 right shoe features an adidas logo on the heel, the brand’s classic three stripe motif, the coordinates of adidas’ Herzogenaurach, Germany headquarters on the outer sole, and adidas’ corporate design on the inner sole. The left shoe has been adorned in a Victorinox Cross and Shield on its side, the coordinates of Victorinox’s Ibach, Switzerland headquarters visible through a transparent outer sole, an image of Victorinox’s Spartan pocket knife on the heel, and the Victorinox corporate logo design on the inner sole. The left shoe can also accommodate an integrated pouch than can house the Classic SD Solemate Limited Edition Swiss Army Knife (or a standard Classic SD SAK).
Alongside the sneaker, the two companies have also designed a limited-edition Swiss Army Knife. Known as the adidas x Victorinox Classic SD Solemate Limited Edition, this SAK comes equipped with a toothpick, tweezers, a nail file, scissors, a key ring, a 2.5-mm screwdriver, and a small blade. Like the sneaker, the knife’s front and rear handle scales boast different designs, with one side sporting a Damascus steel-inspired pattern and the other featuring both adidas’ and Victorinox’s headquarters coordinates. Backed by a lifetime warranty, the knife also sports the coordinates of both companies’ headquarters engraved onto its blade, as well. The limited-edition SAK is also sold with a genuine Nappa leather pouch that can be attached to the sneaker, and a snap hook-equipped paracord pendant made from the same shoe laces that appear on the special edition EQT 93 sneakers.
Available now in select markets, the adidas x Victorinox EQT 93 sneakers have been priced at $75 while pricing for the adidas x Victorinox Classic SD Solemate Limited Edition Swiss Army Knife has been set at $139.
