Adidas x AriZona Iced Tea Collection
Sportswear giant Adidas and popular American beverage producer AriZona Iced Tea have collaborated to create a collection of sneakers and slides.
The designs pay homage to AriZona Iced Tea’s colourful packaging and flavours, and take the form of Adidas’ Continental Vulc sneakers and Adilette slides.
Let’s take a look at the collection, which is filled with bright colours and prints!
AriZona Iced Tea-inspired Sneakers
The sneakers are inspired by AriZona Iced Tea’s Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey, Iced Tea with Lemon, Mucho Mango and Watermelon flavours.
Check out this black pair with mint-green laces. You can see the AriZona logo on the print if you squint hard enough.
These shoes are in a neutral grey and white, with tiny AriZona-logo graphics.
If you are feeling bolder, this pair in a bright pink and cherry blossom patterns might be your shoes of choice.
Here’s another pair that has the cherry blossom print with a black accent.
How about these red and orange sneakers inspired by the Watermelon and Mucho Mango flavours respectively?
AriZona Iced Tea-inspired Slides
The Adilette slides are available in four colourways. The orange and red pairs feature the iconic stripes of the Adilette slides in white and black respectively.
There are also 2 slides that capture the packaging of Arizona Iced Tea. One pays homage to the Iced Tea with Lemon Flavour with a millennial pink base and green/yellow Aztec patterns.
The other one celebrates the Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey flavour, with mint green and pink cherry blossom graphics. Fancy!
On the heels of 99-cent marketing stunt
This collection is on the heels of the popularity of a previous collaboration launched earlier this year. The collection was sold exclusively in a pop-up store in New York City for the grand price of $0.99 per pair.
This is in reference to AriZona Iced Tea’s retail price of $0.99. One of the reasons the beverage is widely loved across the USA is due to its affordable price and big can, making the sugary drink the perfect thirst quencher for hot summers.
Unfortunately, the pop-up store was shut down due to injuries from jostling fans. However, the designs paved the way for the current collection.

We have reached out to Adidas Singapore to check if the collection will be hitting our shores and will update this post accordingly.
