It is always about the search and to some it is almost like a hunt. These are the primal premises that drive sneaker connoisseurs to seek out their next loot. And that leads us to the letter “V” in the 3rd round of adidas Originals Consortium – AZX Project, which highlights the most recent sneaker boutique to open in Harajuku, VA. Short for Various Artists, VA is located one portion within the XLARGE flagship in Harajuku. Though the shop size could be deceiving, VA does have one of the most well-stock product lineup since it is managed by styles of Daikayama, the leading retailer of adidas ware in Japan.
The VA version of ZX9000 is comprised of cotton jersey, the same pliable fabric on a sweatshirt. Then, it was pre-treated to withstand the elements and everyday wear and tear. The 3 stripes are made in anthracite-colored velour, then further sharpen with outlines in reflective yellow.
Though most retailers have sold out the adidas Originals Consortium – AZX Project VA Edition, some still have additional pairs left to offer on their online store, including sneakernstuff and CROOKED TONGUES.
