Adidas and Prada have changed the game when it comes to performance sneakers — merging Adidas’ knowledge of performance gear and sportswear with Prada’s historically stylish aesthetic to create the perfect pair of sneakers called the A+P Luna Rossa 21.
Although they may look the same, both pairs of sneakers serve different purposes. The grey variation was originally created as a lifestyle sneaker for sailors to use — even worn by the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team as they won the PRADA Cup — and the black crafted specifically to represent the brands’ legacies.
As for its design, the A+P Luna Rossa 21 was heavily influenced by the AC75 Luna Rossa boat. Made using adidas’s sustainable technology “PRIMEGREEN” and upcycled materials to create a hydrophobic E-TPU outer shell, a comfortable EVA tongue, unique speed lacing system, and perforated synthetic suede inner saddle, as well as adidas’ very own ‘BOOST’ midsole and wrap-around outsole that you may already be familiar with in their UltraBoost sneakers, this performance sneaker will be the epitome of comfort for sports enthusiasts everywhere.
