In a much-anticipated convergence of music and fashion, the Korn x adidas collaboration has finally landed, making waves in the alternative music realm…

With Jonathan Davis, Korn’s frontman, at the helm, the collaboration pays homage to the band’s iconic stage presence, where the adidas tracksuit became a symbol of rebellion and innovation.

This partnership with the renowned German sportswear brand stands as a testament to Korn’s lasting influence and cultural significance, even decades after their explosive debut.

Inspired by Korn’s influential 1996 album “Life Is Peachy,” the collaboration harks back to the band’s track ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.’, a raw fusion of distorted guitars, pulsating bass lines, and poignant lyrics that defined an entire era of music, particularly the early age of Nu Metal.

Joseph Kahn’s visually arresting music video for the track remains a high point in the alternative scene, encapsulating a spirit of rebellion, challenging norms, and embracing diverse musical styles – all within the backdrop of Korn’s trademark adidas tracksuits.

This groundbreaking collection is more than a mere fashion venture; it’s a bold proclamation of individuality and a celebration of breaking boundaries. From graphic tees and hoodies to distinct versions of the adidas Originals tracksuit – including a vibrant purple sequin rendition paying tribute to the band’s audacious style – each piece is a testament to Korn’s audacious spirit.

Additionally, the collaboration features custom models of the Campus 00s silhouette and the Supermodified sneaker, complete with specially-designed insoles, laces, and even a guitar pick keychain.

Beyond the stitching and sequins, this collection embodies the very essence of what it means to be ‘alternative.’ It captures the spirit of rebellion and musical diversity that Korn has championed throughout their illustrious career.
