adidas-consortium-hal-eqt-adv-03

Perth, Australia, August 2017

This month, adidas Consortium and Highs and Lows complete an EQT trilogy. In 2014, the first collaboration with the Australian footwear retailer resulted in an EQT Guidance 93. In late 2016 Highs and Lows worked on an EQT Support 93 inspired by Frankenstein cars and the Australian outback. Their final installment in the series is a luxurious rendition of the EQT Support ADV.

adidas-consortium-hal-eqt-adv-04

Highs and Lows is Western Australia’s premier footwear retailer with three boutiques in the geographically remote city of Perth. Now veterans when it comes to working in the EQT range- adidas’ early 1990s performance running line – the team at Highs and Lows demonstrates a masterful execution on this EQT Support ADV. A well-balanced color scheme and sophisticated mix of fabrics and materials is key in any Consortium release. While many collaborations tell a story about inspiration and explain the creative journey towards the final product, for this project the concept is the actual design itself: HAL has refined this model by fine-tuning all visual aspects, by applying the finest details to round off an innately strong and distinct silhouette.

adidas-consortium-hal-eqt-adv-05

Over the three year period that adidas Consortium and Highs and Lows have been collaborating, the EQT range has enjoyed a real renaissance. The EQT Support ADV is perhaps the most street-ready model due to its profile and clean aesthetic. Here it is elevated to a new height of luxury by Highs and Lows.

adidas Consortium x Norse Projects: Terre Agravix & Campus 80s – Releasing this Sat

adidas Consortium x Norse Projects Terrex Agravic & Campus 80s PK

– Inspired by the Danish Outdoors –

– Layers on layers on layers –

– A GORE-TEX® membrane hidden within –

– Black like asphalt, beige like sand –

adidas-consortium-norse-projects-campus-terrex

Copenhagen, August 2017

Norse Projects is among the labels responsible for putting Scandinavia on the international style map. Since launching in 2004, the Copenhagen-based brand has focused on both casual and performance clothing, but here – in an exciting collaboration with adidas Consortium – it turns its attention to footwear.

adidas-consortium-norse-projects-campus-03

Using the Terrex – an outdoor pursuits-focused model – and Campus 80s – a lifestyle classic – as templates, Norse Projects has created “Layers” – a sneaker pack influenced heavily by the natural surroundings in its native Denmark.

adidas-consortium-norse-projects-terrex-01

The small, Danish islands of Fur and Møn are known – in geological circles – for the rock formations visible on their coastal cliffs. The cliffs reveal a cross-section of layers of different rock types compressed over many thousands years, and provide the inspiration for the Terrex. The shoe is constructed using multiple, translucent layers which are welded together to form a strong, hardwearing outer shell. Within the layering is a GORE-TEX® membrane, which provides high-level weather protection; a model designed for (and inspired by) the outdoors.

adidas-consortium-norse-projects-campus-01

While the Terrex takes its colorway from light, sandy tones, the Campus 80s is styled on darker asphalt, often found nearer to the surface of the rock formations. Also comprised of a series of layers, the grey accents and textured Primeknit upper serve to create a superb, ultra-low-key casual shoe.

adidas-consortium-norse-projects-terrex-03

Norse Projects must be praised for its understatement. Together with adidas, the brand has created a version of the Terrex using highly-technical materials and construction but in a subtle manner. The Campus 80s is pure stealth: a casual observer might overlook the details at first glance, but a sneaker connoisseur will definitely pick up on the underplayed style.

adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange continues on Saturday: Alife & Starcow – Gazelle & Stan Smith

Consortium_ALIFExSTARCOW_Concept_Shot_2

adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange:

Alife & Starcow

– New York OGs meet Paris OGs –

– Suede Gazelle and leather Stan Smith –

– Low-key patriotism –

– It is hard to beat the classics –

Consortium_ALIFExSTARCOW_Concept_Shot_1

New York & Paris – July 2017

Before the spread of the internet, collaboration was different. Information was exchanged gradually, scenes and subcultures grew slowly and often remained confined to their cities. The original sneaker retailers formed at the heart of these subcultures and did more than simply sell shoes. They became meeting points; places for style, art, music, and urban culture to collide.

Consortium_ALIFExSTARCOW_Concept_Shot_4

New York City’s Alife opened in 1999. Over the past 18 years it has formed a clothing label, grown central to the city’s footwear scene, and helped establish a blueprint for the generation of sneaker boutiques that followed. During a similar time frame, Starcow has achieved comparable status in Paris, where since opening in 2001, it has become the store and hangout for the city’s skate and streetwear community.

Consortium_ALIFExSTARCOW_Concept_Shot_3

adidas Consortium paired them together for the Sneaker Exchange 2017 fully knowing that both partners would dig deep into their huge wealth of knowledge and experience to create a sneaker pack. Together, Alife and Starcow present a suede Gazelle and leather Stan Smith – two style staples stripped right back to the basics.

Consortium_ALIFExSTARCOW_Concept_Shot_6

There is a scrupulous approach to both models: quality materials, clean design and low-key detailing. The Gazelle is delivered in shades of grey, the Stan Smith in white and off-white. The only small injections of color are the red, white and blue of the US “Stars and Stripes” and French “Tricolore” which adorn the heel of both models and are understated, but patriotic nods to each other’s cultures. Placed next to each other, the core idea for this pack becomes evident: the execution on one is inverted on the other. While white leather – embossed with both partner’s logos – appears on the upper of the Stan Smith it was used for the lining on the Gazelle. Conversely, the sand-colored lining of the Stan Smith is the Gazelle’s upper.

This pack celebrates clarity of vision, when executed like this, the classics are hard to beat.

Adidas Consortium ”Run Thru Time”: UltraBOOST Mid & Energy Boost releasing Wed July 19th

adidas Consortium Run Thru Time : UltraBOOST Mid & Energy Boost

– A tale of two runners –

– Contemporary technology –

– Classic Colorways –

– Inspired by the archive –

adidas-Run-Through-Time-Ultra-Boost-Mid-12

Herzogenaurach, August 2017

From the middle of the 20th century to the present day, adidas has been at the vanguard of performance footwear. Here we present “Run Thru Time” – a contemporary running pack inspired by classic performance silhouettes from the adidas archive. Both the UltraBOOST Mid and the Energy Boost utilize the latest footwear innovations to provide the wearer with stability, comfort and support. The uppers are one-piece Primeknit and the soles use BOOST™ technology. While a cuffed ankle sock on the UltraBOOST Mid provides additional protection, it is the heel cage on the Energy Boost that offers high-level stability. In short, these technical features were only recently made available to both footwear designers and runners themselves.

adidas-Run-Through-Time-Energy-Boost-5

The high-tech materials used in 2017 may bear little resemblance to the footwear of the past, but at its core each model – over the decades – has carried the same competitive spirit that adidas has built its strong and lasting heritage on. Long distance running was the source for inspiration and the task to to apply modern design- and production principles to create two contemporary interpretations for this supreme discipline.

adidas-Run-Through-Time-Ultra-Boost-Mid-6

The colorways pay homage to the Boston Super and the Marathon TR, two road running classics originally constructed in pieces of individually-colored suede and nubuck. For the Run Thru Time pack the classic uppers were revolutionized using Primeknit fabric. Shapes, models and technologies may have changed but quality color combinations remain timeless, they allow us to embrace the future while still celebrating adidas’ past.

Originals meets Tanker

Black, white and our favorite shade of blue

Three items of unrivaled quality

RELEASE DATE THIS SAT 10TH 0F JUNE @11:00

Tokyo, May 2017

adidas and the Yoshida Company began life as small, family-run businesses. adidas made sportswear, Yoshida made bags and over the latter half of the 20th century both became giants in their respective fields. Now experts in our industries, together we present a small collection of high quality footwear and bags. It is east meets west; a truly special exchange of ideas. PORTER – the main brand under the Yoshida umbrella – has a worldwide reputation for the paramount quality of its products. The brand offers a great variety of items in innumerable fabrics and is best known for the iconic TANKER line. Launched in 1983, Tanker was inspired by the flight jackets (MA-1) worn by US Air Force pilots and has risen to cult status in Japan but also around the globe.

34 years on, TANKER fabric is the material that binds the FTW in this release. The NMD C_1 is among the most recent additions to the Originals line and for this project it is executed to blend exceptionally well with the TANKER bag series. In PORTER, adidas Originals has a collaborative partner that equally implements the highest standards in textile decisions, design aesthetics and construction. The result is a smart, elegant and highly contemporary piece of footwear that upholds both company’s quality standards.

Australia meets Atlanta

Glow in the dark, box fresh 

A PureBOOST and a revolutionary Climacool

Inspired by the world’s deadliest jellyfish

Sydney & Atlanta May 2017

Sneakerboy is relatively new to the sneaker game but the Australian store has quickly built a solid reputation in the upscale footwear market. It operates stores in Sydney, Queensland, Melbourne, and Chadstone. In Atlanta, Wish is the city’s leading sneaker spot and one of the finest footwear outposts in the American South. Over the years the retailer has made a name for itself via high-profile product collaborations and strong online editorials.

Sneakerboy’s stores are all situated on the Australian Coast so the retailer looked to the sea for inspiration and began exploring aesthetic referencesto the box jellyfish, the world’s deadliest jellyfish. Its translucency and luminescence were the starting point for the collaborative design process. Even though native to the Australian waters, Wish by chance also knew of this particular jellyfish: the Georgia Aquarium is one of only four institutions in the world which houses the specimen. A great coincidence and exceptional link between these two partners.

Consortium_SneakerboyXWish_Concept_Shot_2

The PureBOOST glows in the dark, yet its most distinct feature is the use of clear, loose gauge knit detailing on the shoes 3-Stripes branding. A functional feature never before used on other Primeknit models. The distinctive sock-like construction paired with a wide lacing system helps to make this one of the year’s guaranteed neck breakers.

PureBOOST comes in unisex sizes us 4,5-11. Price 160€

Consortium_SneakerboyXWish_Detail_Shot_1

The other model that gets a jellyfish makeover is the Climacool. This iconic, early 21st century runner is currently enjoying a real renaissance. This time it is made translucent and, as its counterpart, luminescent. Similar to the PureBOOST, a new Primeknit fiber processing is applied that results in a geometric-patterned upper. As well as an outstanding product, it is a great example of adidas returning to an archive model and giving a type of contemporary rework impossible at the time of the Climacool’s initial conception.

adidas Consortium x Haven UltraBOOST Release 8th of April 11:00

Vancouver, April 2017 

Since opening in 2006, Canadian retailer HAVEN has become a major force in global menswear. Starting with physical stores in Vancouver and then Toronto, HAVEN has grown a truly international following. Its extensive online platform combines retail with elevated editorial and investigative features.

adidas-consortium-haven-ultraboost-fb-01

Heavy weather and ominous skies provide the inspiration, a decade’s worth of experience with technical products the underlying know-how for this triple black UltraBOOST. HAVEN – always on point and full of fresh ideas – has opted for an uncaged, unstriped silhouette. Out of the dark clouds emerges an elegant footwear model, practical in function and technical in appearance. The reflective strands running through the lacing plus the reflective, perforated paneling on the Primeknit upper provide a perfect utilitarian accent to adidas’ finest runner.

adidas-consortium-haven-ultraboost-fb-04

Optimal urban camouflage, designed to go almost undetected against slicked city tarmac, brand detailing is kept to a minimum. In absence of the hallmark UltraBOOST cage, this model uses subtle rubberized appliques for understated adidas branding. HAVEN’s name is visible on small leather tabs on the shoes’ tongue.

adidas-consortium-haven-ultraboost-fb-06

With every Consortium collaboration we look for a high-quality partner who can provide a strong narrative and together we create an outstanding product. HAVEN has found inspiration in an unlikely, but everyday, place and projected that inspiration onto their UltraBOOST with an outstanding result.
