Ahead of its release this Saturday, the adidas Consortium x Hanon CNTR is featured in a new short film that places the shoe squarely in the environment that inspired its design — namely, Hanon‘s hometown of Aberdeen, aka the Granite City. Based on the archival adidas Centaur silhouette, retroed for the first time since its original release in 1984, the shoe’s grey upper is executed in a combination of suede, mesh and nubuck, reflecting Aberdeen’s rugged cityscape. It’s artfully showcased in this feature video, which hints at the city’s unique character and charm even during a typically bleak winter. Check it out below.
