Sat atop a dark brown rubber sole is a shimmery silver leather, taking the icon down an unfamiliar path. The 3-Stripes on the side wall are presented in a crocheted-like fashion, similar to the tooling we saw on Bonnerâ€™s â€œCore Blackâ€ Samba edition from 2021. The heel tab and laces also adopt the beige tones that we have grown to expect from Bonnerâ€™s library of colours, used on the previous â€œOrange Ecruâ€ and â€œCream greenâ€ editions. These leather accents ground the pairâ€™s shiny profile and instead lean towards the Wales Bonner aesthetic. Co-branding can be spotted on the lateral quarter, a simple font bearing the brandâ€™s wordmark in a matching cream. Unlike the previous collection, the extended tongue returns, folding over the laces as a nod to the Sambaâ€™s footballing heritage.
