Clad in a premium nubuck upper, these sneakers are ensured to stay secured comfortably on the feet 247. Those who are eyeing for a pair can choose from men exclusive sizes ranging from 8-13. Women can also avail by going 1.5 sizes down their usual.

With "Travelling is a Sport" as the main mantra of this March 2018 launch, founder of Oyster Holdings Woodie White drew inspiration in designing this from his fascination regarding uniforms. It then resulted to the perfect travel capsule wardrobe. In effect, most of the pieces are timeless and iconic, only injected with a pastel punch.

The Adidas Oyster Holding Adidas 350 digs to the past but is made ultra-modern and chic with the use of dusty colors—Ash Pearl and Trace Scarlet. The low-top silhouette offers these sneakers to be styled in a variety of ways. Both brands have achieved the foremost intent of being a travel-friendly piece, meaning it can be paired with different items without the need for too much styling.

The aim of this collection goes beyond the style of a capsule collection but seizes to capture the whole essence of it. One of this is the fact that it aims to be worn constantly and continuously and not to be the spur-of-the-moment sneaker, but one's go-to shoe. More than elevating the iconic 350 sneakers into a more luxurious form, the upper is designed with perforations to maximize the breathability of the sneaker without compromising durability. The semi-translucent rubber outsole makes it a great match for the overall look and functionality of the shoe.

Oyster Holdings is a relatively new Los Angeles-based label. Only established in 2014, the brand instantly set itself apart from other lifestyle brands. With the modern traveler and contemporary luxury in mind, the brand gave a new definition to sportswear separates. The fusion of unique style and quality craftsmanship provides superior comfort for long and short travels and ensuring that no outfit changes are needed throughout.

Not the first collaboration between Adidas and Oyster Holdings, this current release features a wide range of apparel and footwear, all in a capsule. Sneakers included in the collection are reworks of some of Adidas' retro and iconic silhouettes like the Handball Top and 350. All of which are in the pastel spectrum apt for spring.

  • Branding is kept minimal with the subtle Trefoil and Oyster Holdings logos on the tongue and gold-foil Adidas 350 and Oyster Holdings logos on the side.
