The highlight of the Extra Butter X Adidas collaboration is undeniably the Adidas Cable-Knit 2.0 SC Premiere footwear, which comes in a striking white and cricket-ball red color scheme. Notably, the original Cable-Knit SC Premiere was a brainchild of Extra Butter’s own designers, Bernie Gross and Jeff Staple, in collaboration with Adidas’ design team. It marked a groundbreaking moment in sneaker design, as it was the first instance where the cable-knit fabric was used as the shoe’s upper material.
