Five different designers from Asia are all bringing their own personal style to the iconic adidas Stan Smith. After CLOT put their twist on the model, the second wave comes from luxury streetwear label Mastermind JAPAN. Having worked on projects with the Three Stripes in the past, the Mastermind x adidas Consortium Stan Smith is the latest from the label. Utilizing their signature jet-black style, intricate and interesting texture separates this special edition Stan Smith. Everything but the toe box and tongue features a tiny laser-cut criss-cross pattern, giving this rendition a true premium appearance. White provides contrast on the laces and midsole, while Mastermind’s skull and crossbones logo details the silhouette in silver on the tongue and heel. This high-end adidas Stan Smith will release February 22nd at No.6 London, No.42 Paris, No.74 Berlin, and selected Consortium boutique retailers.
adidas Consortium is bringing retro running to the forefront this February with the return of the adidas EQT Cushion OG and the adidas EQT Support 93. Classic style and cushioning make the Support 93 a timeless silhouette, and you can pick up your pair of one of two re-launch ready colorways at global adidas Consortium retailers in early February, 2014, including shopnicekicks.com. Check out detailed images of the retros below, and let us know if you plan to cop either pair in the comments.
The trend of running shoes translating casually continues to progress with the Three Stripes crafting a combination of both concepts on the adidas Consortium adiZero Adios 2. Consortium lifestyle puts a renovation on the athletic and groundbreaking adiZero Adios 2, further expending its horizons. The upcoming Fall/Winter Adios set consists of four different colorways, all of which have intricate detail and design. Synthetic suede and waterproof mesh compose the upper, which are decked out in separate unique prints. The first pack consists of a camouflage pair and a subtle black and silver makeup, while the latter carries a cool grey and blue model with a black and yellow partner.
The ‘80s invades 2013 with the adidas Superstar 80s “Back in the Day” Pack. As a nod to the New York graffiti and hip hop scene during that time, the classic model is upgraded with grey nubuck and colorful spotted snakeskin print. Each colorway comes with alternate matching laces, and feature the customary Consortium woven label on the tongue. The adidas Superstar 80s “Back in the Day” Pack will be available on Saturday, June 8 at select locations, including End.
Taking cues from the 1980s, a decade fondly remembered for being both fun and the early roots of hip hop, the adidas Consortium Superstar 80s “BITD” Pack combines a classic model with a fun twist. Grey suede dresses the upper and is accented by matching brightly colored laces and inner lining. The jewel of the pack is the shiny snakeskin print 3-stripe branding and heel tab. Consisting of three colorways, the adidas Consortium Superstar 80s “BITD” Pack will release on June 8.
Due to the tragic events of the 2013 Boston Marathon, the release of both colorways on the adidas Consortium Boston Super OG was postponed. In support of the relief efforts, the sneakers will launch this weekend at shopnicekicks.com with 20% of the sale price donated to The One Fund Boston. Both makeups of the adidas Consortium Boston Super OG will be on sale tomorrow at shopnicekicks.com as well as select Consortium accounts nationwide.
