East Meets West

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.

To complement this exclusive release, PORTER updates two of their key styles, the Helmet bag as well as the popular waist bag, with a couple of neat nods to adidas Originals. The lining of both bags appears in the Originals blue while the 3-Stripes are subtly integrated as zip tape. Attractive but durable and filled with functional built-in storage, you can tell within moments why PORTER products have such a strong reputation.

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.

adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange SNS & Social Status Ultraboost & Superstar Boost

consortium logo

Stockholm & Charlotte – January 2017
The second installment of the 2017 Sneaker Exchange is a transcontinental collaboration between two major Consortium partners.  Sweden’s Sneakersnstuff began life in Stockholm and has gradually opened stores across northern Europe. Similarly, Social Status started with a single store in North Carolina before expanding around the eastern United States.

setup

The UltraBOOST is the first to get the makeover. adidas’ marquee runner-turned-casualwear sensation is executed in breathable grey/white melange Primeknit upper with leather overlays. It features a taped toe-tip and – as the luxurious highlight – a soft matte suede cage.

Sneakersnstuff and Social Status apply the same BOOST™ and Primeknit attributes to the Superstar, giving the old-school basketball silhouette advantages of today’s technology. The result is a lighter, more flexible take on a late sixties hardwood classic.

This second pack in the Sneaker Exchange series takes a playful approach towards athletic or performance footwear and the role of sneakers in the modern world.

This 2nd installment of the adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange launches here in Beamhill sat the 18th of FEB

Big news for 2017: Beamhill is now an Adidas Consortium retailer

consortium banner

adidas Consortium is the statement sneaker concept by adidas Originals. It was created to showcase the brand’s heritage, today’s premium Originals footwear offer and is a tool to push new ideas and silhouettes. adidas Consortium provides a unique and limited product range for a special consumer type – from the core sneaker collector to a more fashion related sneaker consumer. It is exclusively distributed in around 80 stores worldwide, covering the core of global leading sneaker boutiques as well as selected trend and fashion doors.

History:

In 2005 Consortium was initiated as part of the Superstar 35 series, on the one hand in order to build an even stronger relationship to adidas’ closest friends and most influential sneaker retailers at that time, on the other hand to enable them to work on limited and special projects with the brand.

Ever since Consortium is the highest and most limited level of product and distribution within Originals. Its base has been and will always be the idea of collaboration in true sense of the word: a combined work project of two equal partners to demonstrate mutual respect of each others brand and work. Therefore the handshake logo is literally the definition of Consortium.

Sneaker Exchange:

Sneaker Exchange is the ongoing theme for the year 2017 And this Saturday the 28th is going to be the release date for the first Sneaker Exchange release and the First ever Adidas Consortium release in Beamhill!

adidas Consortium_colette x UNDFTD 4

adidas Consortium_colette x UNDFTD 1

 

Parisian store Colette, which has been one of Europe’s it stores for design, art, culture and fashion for close to 18 years, have come together with Los Angeles UNDEFEATED, one of the most recognized brands in the world within sneaker community, for the first installment of the much anticipated ’Sneaker Exchange.’ Both brands are renown for their approach to collaboration, inviting some of the most influential creatives in the world to co-create products, this time, with adidas at the core.

In this first installment of adidas Consortium’s most ambitious collaboration series to date, we see influence from Paris and Los Angeles on the EQT Support and Campus 80. The Sneaker Exchange is about beautiful footwear foremost, but it also establishes a platform to ponder the ideas of time, distance and their changing role in the modern world. It is just this combination that both parties draw inspiration from here, the concept of playing with opposites.

The pack includes a Campus 80 and EQT. The Campus 80 has a white high-quality leather upper, an off white rubber sole with royal blue lacing and heel. The EQT support is the moodier, night time counterpart. The sole, too, is off-white but dark navy and deep blue shades dominate the models’ upper.
