Dubai’s iconic Pakistani restaurant, Ravi releases sneaker collab with Adidas

One of Dubai’s absolute favourites, Ravi Restaurant, has joined forces with Adidas Originals to capture that authentic heart of the city with a stunning sneaker collaboration.

For many years, Ravi Restaurant has been a favourite in Dubai, where residents are known to come back again and again.

So it’s really exciting to know that Adidas Originals is launching the ‘SUPERSTAR RAVI’ sneaker in collaboration with the iconic restaurant.

The SUPERSTAR RAVI colourway is accented in Ravi’s iconic green and we love it!

Speaking about the collab, RAVI founder, Chaudary Abdul Hameed said:

“My family has worked so hard to bring Ravi to where it is now, it has become more than just a restaurant with staff and customers, it has become a home that many grew up with. To say that Ravi had a humble beginning and is now representing Dubai as a key city with adidas is a milestone to celebrate”

Ravi was founded in Dubai as a family-owned business in 1978 by Chaudary Abdul Hameed where it originally catered to those who were searching for home cooked meals at an affordable price.

Over time, Ravi became a must-visit spot for locals and tourists alike and has hosted a number of celebrity visitors.


The ‘Superstar Ravi

This is what Adidas had to say about the Superstar Ravi:

Offering a re-interpreted take on the adidas Original Superstar, the special edition SUPERSTAR RAVI colourway references the Pakistani heritage of the owners and features a custom sock liner with a hand-drawn map design signifying the meaning of the name Ravi, meaning “river” which is in Northeastern Pakistan. The heel tab branding includes the year the restaurant opened alongside the name in English and Arabic on either shoe, as well as three sets of laces. The restaurant owners hand selected 6 hero dishes which have been added to the tongue of the sneakers with English on one side and Arabic on the other. Each pair of shoes are delivered in a special edition takeaway style box and comes with a detachable hangtag featuring the restaurant’s logo,”

This is a great way to bring to life such a unique culinary perspective and story, don’t you think?

The limited edition Superstar Ravi will be available for sale from the 23rd of June online, through adidas shoes and select retailers exclusively in Dubai.
