adidas Consortium Rod Laver

16 . 10 . 20

To say Australian Rod Laver has left a deep and meaningful impact on the game of tennis would be an understatement. Laver was rated the number-one professional tennis player from 1964 – 1970, and his legacy is marked by tournaments and stadiums named in his honor – the Laver Cup and Rod Laver Arena respectively – and of course one of adidas’ most beloved tennis shoes, the Rod Laver.
 
One of the first ever signature sport shoes, the adidas Rod Laver silhouette first debuted in 1970. Now, adidas is celebrating the lifetime partnership between Laver and the brand, by creating four premium versions of the Rod Laver Super silhouette. This Consortium edition elevates the Rod Laver with luxurious leathers, such as reptile, ostrich, aniline and debossed & cracked leathers.

Mountain Research x Reebok DMX Trail Shadow

Oct 15th, 2020

Despite their longstanding history in outdoors gear, Mountain Research has gradually begun to draw inspiration from sources far outside their own comfort zone. Kobayashi Setsumasa, the Japanese label’s designer, has begun to work in themes of anarchy and dichotomy — the latter channeled time and time again through his own mainline collections as well as his on-going collaboration with Reebok. Exhibited first through the saddle shoe influenced Classic Leather, these themes are set to take further shape as the DMX Trail Shadow returns to celebrate ’80s collegiate style.

Popularized in Japan during the aforementioned era, this taste for Ivy League is effectively expressed through color alone as the frame it sits on is technical and replete with the aggressive design language the imprint doused in yellow prior. A light grey tone is completely hued atop many of the upper’s fixtures as an overt reference to the sweatshirts and pants that would often see tackle twill lettering. But instead of the bold-faced applique, the pair opts for perforated vector logos along its side profile, white Mountain Research stamps atop the tongue, and a string of text at the heel that reads “HOLIDAY IN THE MOUNTAIN.”

adidas Consortium Supergrip

09 . 10 . 20

Since Consortium’s inception in 2005 with the Superstar’s 35th anniversary, the Superstar is arguably the most important sneaker in Consortium’s history. Consortium looks to the origins of the Superstar before the Superstar came to be. The Supergrip was the go to sneaker for basketball players in the mid 60s until the Superstar came along in 1970 and many of the details remain the same, what preceeded the rubber shell toe was a rubber mudguard offering protection, the classic black stripes remain the same.

The never before retroed prototype sees a faithful recreation in 2020 as part of the Superstar’s 50th anniversary celebrations featuring leather upper, rubber midsole and gum rubber toe guard.  There are two perforations above the edge of the sole in each of the gaps between the “Three Stripes”. The tongue material is PVC foam. Based on a prototype of the Supergrip, all details have been observed including the box where the shape and design has been taken straight from the archive

Diadora Made In Italy : N9000 Leone MII

06 . 10 . 20

More Made in Italy goodness from Diadora has rocked up to our door. Continuing their fine form this season, the Italian sportswear stalwart present a luxe execution on it’s flagship 90s runner – the N9000. Enlisting the help of Leo Colacicco, a long standing collaborative partner of the brand who’s no stranger to an N9000 having reworked the style under the LC23 guise and his own name.

The ‘Leone’ N9000, we can’t say for certain what inspired this latest colourway but I’d be willing to wager the dusty sun-drenched desert compositions of Sergio Leone’s spaghetti Western epics might have had some impact. This latest N9000 features an upper composed of suede overlays finished in desert tans and rugged browns contrasted by a desert rose pink suede overlay and a cactus green midsole to dial in some suitably frontier flavours. All this sits atop the signature ‘neutral’ N9000 tooling with the shoe signed off by Diadora’s usual sharp embroidered branding.

adidas Consortium Campus 80 X RECOUTURE

12 . 09 . 20

After a small Maker’s Lab IPO and an extremely exclusive release with mita sneakers, Japan’s RECOUTURE is delivering their adidas Campus 80 collaboration to a much larger audience. Currently, retailers nationwide are set to launch not just one but three total colorways very soon, all bearing the design tweaks now synonymous with Shun Hirose.

Though their colors are distinct from the pairs that precede, the construction is near identical, the upper’s displaying every single notable change that the original first introduced. The lateral, which flaunts either a grey, navy, or chalk white finish, wraps the eye stays as it does the tooling in one seamless piece that bears a tacked on set of Three Stripes, “CAMPUS” embroidery, and contrast stitch. The opposite side is equally noteworthy as the tongue is stitched down underneath the eye stay to prevent it from slipping downwards as it would typically. Elsewhere along the heel and forefoot, the pair is relatively ordinary, though the two aside from the white option start to alternate with a dark reds, blacks, pure white shades, and the like.
