A second collaboration between California nu metal stars Korn and clothing brand Adidas is coming out next month, according to a new report.

Korn and Adidas have long been unofficial partners, with the band writing songs like A.D.I.D.A.S. and wearing their apparel onstage during the 1990s, while receiving free products from the clothing line.

In October 2023, the relationship finally became more formal, with Adidas releasing a line of Korn-branded trainers, hoodies, tracksuit bottoms and more.

Now, as reported by Complex, another line of Korn and Adidas clothing will be getting released on May 15.

Leaked photographs obtained by Complex show new versions of the Adidas Campus 2 and Supermodified shoes with Korn branding. The artwork of Korn’s 1998 album, Follow The Leader, appears on the insoles of the Campus 2.

New socks, hats and long-sleeve t-shirts are also slated to be released.

The most impressive item of the array, however, is a full-blown sequin tracksuit, which mirrors the glamorous Adidas tracksuits that Korn frontman Jonathan Davis wore onstage in the ’90s, plus in 1998’s Got The Life video.

Complex says that this second collaboration between Korn and Adidas won’t be the final one, either.

Reportedly, a third line of Korn-inspired clothing will be released in October 2024, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the band’s game-changing debut album.

This third team-up is expected to feature an Adidas Superstar shoe with interchangeable stripes and another tracksuit, this time reversible.

The new Adidas collaborations are the jewel in the crown of what’s already set to be a momentous year for Korn.

The band will be touring prolifically this year, starting with a series of festival and arena shows in Europe this summer. The run will include a headline slot at London’s 40,000-capacity Gunnersbury Park in August.

After that, Korn will embark on a blockbuster tour of North America with support from Gojira and Spiritbox.

Guitarist Brian “Head” Welch also recently offered an update on Korn’s next album, saying he expects their 16th studio offering to mark “the best and heaviest Korn stuff in years”.

All announced Korn tour dates are available below, and tickets are available via the band’s website.
