The story of XLARGE started in November of 1991 on Los Angeles’ Vermont Avenue. Then a hub of distinctive urban trends, from skateboard, street art, to the underground Hip-Hop movement, activities that later became the core of the Generation X identity.
With that melange of concepts in mind, XLARGE designed its own edition of adidas Originals FIVE TWO 3 Collection as a reflection to those mishmash of ideas and cultures. An upper consisted of 4 different colors; moss, navy, pink and turquoise, all in leather embossed with snake skin pattern. Intersect each colorways are strips of elk leather in black, imprinted with the XLARGE logo. To further liven the colors, a 5-lace pack, coordinating to each color on the footwear, is included. Each feature the motto of XLARGE in bold, white print, ”Getting No Respect Since “91″.
