adidas x Moomin sneakers
Among the products designed for this first-ever collaboration, there are some fun sneakers. The classic Stan Smith shoes have been given a Moominous makeover, with Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden outlines present on the tongue and the back of each shoe.
From Superstar to Nizza High
The collaboration sees the Moomins also arrive on the adidas Superstar and adidas Superstar 360 for toddlers and kids, and adidas Nizza High, adidas Adilette and adidas Hyperturf shoes for women.
“Believe me: there’s nothing more dangerous in life than to become an indoor sitter.”
Tove Jansson, from her book Moominland Midwinter
Here is what adidas and Moomin Characters had to say about the collaboration:
Francesca Stevenson, Product Manager at adidas, said: “We were creating a collection that focused on themes of adventure, nature, and fun –
there was no better fit than the Moomins! They embody these themes perfectly. We wanted to create a collection that celebrated the playful and adventurous nature of the Moomins and bring this to life by using the beautiful and iconic artworks across our range.”
Roleff Kråkström, Managing Director of Moomin Characters, said: “This collaboration perfectly captures the adventurous spirit which the Moomins are known and loved for. It’s so exciting to see these classic adidas designs combined with Tove Jansson’s much-loved character illustrations – we’re sure the collection will be a hit with fans all over the world.”
Something for everyone
This playful collection has something for everyone. One of the highlights is a beautifully embroidered baseball cap emblazoned with a Moomin motif, but if you prefer more subtle colours and motifs, you will surely find something to your liking. The full range of the collection includes:
● adidas Originals x Moomin Baseball Cap

…and many more, depending on the country. Some more examples of the products:
This infants’ adidas x Moomin shorts and t-shirt set is infused with lovability and an adventurous spirit. The top features Moomintroll and Snufkin camping cosily, while the shorts show Moomintroll setting out on an adventure. Classic 3-Stripes on both pieces add an authentic adidas signature.
The collection includes kids’ adidas Superstar 360 x Moomin Shoes that bring that same sentiment with a colourful design showing Moomintroll out and about on an adventure. The slip-on construction with a stretchy mesh upper creates a sock-like feel so kids can move with comfort.
The baby blue kids’ adidas Superstar shoes are so adorable that don’t be surprised if the kids start dancing around after spotting Moomin himself in graphics on the shoes’ leather upper. A rubber outsole and the world-famous shell toe design keep growing feet secure for days on the move.
