Inspired by New York’s basketball history along with the countless pick-up games and street ball tournaments played across the city every year, adidas Originals recently revamped the basic elements on the Conductor Hi, its signature OG b-ball shoe, and came away with the adidas Originals Conductor Hi “Defense”. To better understand the needs of streetballers, adidas Originals enlisted the help of Harlem’s atmos NYC during the design process and came up with a slew of alterations. While on appearance, the atmos x adidas Originals Conductor Hi “Defense” remains identical to the ’87 Conductor Hi, designers added modern updates such as scuff resistant overlay, water-resistant woven mesh, reflective adidas stripes and piping. Supple premium leather and a gun metal adidas tongue tag add a bit of luxury to the overall concept.
Retails for US$ 140, the atmos x adidas Originals Conductor Hi “Defense” will be available first at atmos NYC this coming Friday, November 30th, follow by a general release at adidas retail locations and online store beginning on December 7th.
