Ten days from now on the Saturday November 14th will see the launch of four unique and individual sneaker redesigns for the part two of the adidas Originals Consortium City Series. adidas has chosen four sneaker models; New York, Kopenhagen, Stockholm and Milano and have requested for the premier retail outlets in each city to redesign to make the shoes even more personified than what it already is.
adidas have hand picked DQM from New York, norseProjects from Copenhagen, Sneakersnstuff from Stockholm and SlamJam in Milan, who have each expressed their cities with original concepts that is unique to the respective cities. Each sneaker plays with a combination of colors and choice of premium fabrics and materials putting modern touches to classic silhouettes.
DQM ADIDAS NEW YORK
DQM have opted for a New York blackout when it comes to their take on this ’80s running favourite. Previous mixes of suede and mesh might prove a little delicate for the inclement weather the city can unleash, so this simple version of the shoe is ideally suited. Taking the white of an original colourway and applying it to the Dellinger webbed midsole, the upper is primarily constructed from a hardwearing, water-resistant fabric, including the 3-Stripes, while the matching black tongue and heeltab are made of leather.
Store name and shoe name are embossed into a stripe on either shoe, continuing the uncompromising look of the redesign. Cranking up the hardwearing look that the high grip outsole always hinted at, the ghilly lacing that once took the top three eyelets has been replaced by brass d-rings too, while leather lining is a premium touch to this wet-weather friendly makeover.
