A true homage to one of the biggest days in the Mexican calendar, Cinco de Mayo translates as the ‘Fifth of May’, referencing the celebration which marks Mexico’s victory over the French Empire in 1862. Both pairs are teeming with vibrant colours – much like the city streets of Mexico during the yearly holiday – transporting the rich hues onto an authentic, streamlined adidas Originals silhouette.
With its beginnings at the Mexico Olympic Games of ’68, the Mexicana is amongst the OG silhouettes of 3-Stripe heritage. With its initial purpose as a sporting silhouette, the Mexicana has – like many other adidas Originals classics – become a sought-after design on and off the terraces; its name is firmly etched into the history books of 3-Stripes.
Both colourways are full of bold shades, with head-turning hues of red, purple and green, and purple, red and yellow each commanding attention. The uppers are suede-wrapped with premium leather accents, whilst golden foil Mexicana branding sits proudly on the laterals and gum rubber soles deliver that nostalgic terrace appeal to each pair.
