Created through a shared passion for Fly Fishing, END. x adidas Original’s design teams rework angling uniform staples through the contemporary casual lens of END. for a new generation rediscovering nature and the art of fishing. Epitomised by friend of the brands and campaign protagonist, UK rapper, grime MC, DJ and TV personality, Big Zuu who wades in the water, immersing himself in the much-loved pastime, echoing the joy of the sport within the campaign.

The collection comprises of every day fishing essentials such as cargo pants, fishing vests, and bucket hats alongside tees and sweats submerged within an earthy tonal colour-pallet inspired by the riverside and popular fly-fishing catch such as wild Trout, Bass, Carp, Pike and Salmon. Each piece of the collection features a custom graphic, depicting a cartoon-style fish between adidas and END. logo’s nodding to vintage-inspired tackle packaging.
