Victorinox sent out a newsletter today, promoting their new collaboration with Adidas that resulted in a unique sneaker and Swiss Army Knife offering.
The Adidas EQT93 Victorinox sneaker is said to feature Victorinox’s grey and red colors, a Damast steel tread pattern, and a place to attach the custom leather pouch made for the matching Swiss Army Knife multi-tool.
The sneakers will be sold in “selected markets.”
The multi-tool, which Victorinox amusingly named the Classic SD Solemate Limited Edition, is also a limited edition but will be more widely available.
The Victorinox Solemate features a unique pattern on the front, and geographic coordinates on the back.
The knife blade also features engraved coordinates, which Victorinox says describes the location of both brands’ headquarters.
The Victorinox Solemate comes with a paracord keychain and black nappa leather pouch that can be attached to the limited edition Adidas sneakers.
Victorinox says this about the specially decorated Classic SD Swiss Army Knife: “Perfectly matching the sneaker, this sleek pocket knife brings sharp urban style to the everyday.”
Price: $75 (Swiss Army Knife only)
Obviously, unless you must have the limited edition Vic Solemate and its leather pouch, you’re better off with any of their other Classic SD styles, with street pricing starting at $17.
This unusual-seeming team-up between Victorinox and Adidas follows in the footsteps of Leatherman’s team-up with Topo Designs on a limited edition Skeletool multi-tool and matching pouch.
Anything that helps further normalize pocket tool carry and use is a good thing.
