Ninja's Latest adidas Collaboration Recalls "Chasing the Spark"

Having returned to his native Twitch, world-conquering gamer Ninja has rejoined adidas for a second round of signature sneakers. Comprising four pairs of the streamer’s preferred silhouettes, “Catch the Spark” introduces a selection of colorways as playful as Ninja himself, complete with an appropriately animated teaser clip.

The stylized artwork complements “Catch the Spark”s bright kicks, yielding two pairs of ZX Torsion runners and another duo of Nite Joggers. The former silhouette is offered in neutral grey and grey, white and purple, complete with mesh, suede and rubber panels. “Time In” lace dubraes and medial panels emblazoned with kunai daggers complete the design.

Meanwhile, its counterpart arrives in understated black and grey accented by bold blue and striking amber and orange. Atop a full-length BOOST midsole, the shoes offer matching dubrae and kunai detailing, mixing and matching the textiles across each panel of the sneaker.1 of 152 of 153 of 154 of 155 of 156 of 157 of 158 of 159 of 1510 of 1511 of 1512 of 1513 of 1514 of 1515 of 15

“When I started playing video games, no one had imagined what was possible in gaming yet,” Ninja said in a statement. “All I cared about was doing what I loved, so I just kept going. I wanted to use this project to highlight some really personal times in my life and I hope that in doing so I can inspire others, showing them that it’s okay to chase their dreams too. That’s also why I picked different colors and textures for each of the shoes — as a way of referencing all the different phases we go through on our respective ‘Time In’ journeys.”

All of the “Chase the Spark” sneakers hit adidas’ dedicated Ninja page on October 14.

Most recently, adidas looked to the future with its high-tech Futurecraft STRUNG runners.
