For Craig Green—an expert at turning the most utilitarian fashion into works of art— adidas sneakers are the perfect canvas for avant-garde experimentation. For his second collaboration with the sportswear giant, Green wrapped translucent “ghost layers” on the CG Polta AKH 1 (a merger of the adidas Samba and Boston Super models) and the CG Graddfa AKH—a take on the recent Kamanda model. It’s an apt description: each pair looks like a footballer traversed through some ghostly ectoplasm on the way to a club in Berlin, and the result is a synthetic, futuristic take on the classic adidas sneaker.
