As a continuation of the popular Materials of the World series and coincide with the ongoing Flavors of the World (FOTW) series. adidas Orignals created the Sounds of the City (SOTC) collection, a series of classic sneakers and coordinating apparels with design cues centered on the musical vibes that have shaped pulses of metropolitans around the globe. The first being the Motown Records Pack, which honored the legendary rhythms and blues pioneer created by Detroit native Barry Gordy. The next to be launch is the Alligator Records Pack. Founded by Bruce Iglauer, then as a simple shipping clerk at the legendary blues/jazz record company, Delmark Records (which many consider to be the oldest independent blues/jazz record label in the US). When his boss and founder of Delmark, Bob Koester, refused to produce Iglauer’s new favorite, the blues band Hound Dog Taylor & the HouseRockers, Iglauer decided to strike out on his own. With his life savings, he launched Alligator Records in Chicago, named after his habit of “clicking” his teeth together while listening to a jam session. Since its establishment in 1971, Alligator Records amassed a catalog of over 200 records and worked with iconic artists such as the “Queen of the Blues”, Koko Taylor, Lonnie Mack, Luther Allison, and more…

For the Sounds of the City – Alligator Records Pack, the design team at adidas Originals created a nylon track jacket, with a large Alligator Records’ logo, a smiling gator, embroidered on the rear. A cotton bowling shirt with caramel brown, the company’s color, pipings and a caramel brown t-shirt, again with the “smiling gator”, in antiqued print. But the centerpiece of the collection is the sneaker, a adidas Originals Superstar 1, with a white forefoot upper and brown rear upper in embossed croc skin pattern. This limited collection is currently available at adidas Originals boutiques and selected retailers worldwide, including Overkill of Berlin.
