It turns out adidas has plenty more in store for its venerable Stan Smith silhouette. One upcoming project finds the Three Stripes tapping the services of a quintet of designers from Asia to produce the Consortium Stan Smith “PLAY” pack. For the pair devised by Shigeki Fujishiro, the Tokyo-based product designer maintains the shoe’s bare-bones aesthetic while integrating colored string throughout the perforated three-stripes to create. The upshot: different geometric shapes on the sides of each side shoe, conferring an entirely new look. “Stan Smith Play” printed near the heel finishes the details. Expect the limited-edition kicks to be available at No.6 London, No.42 Paris, No.74 Berlin and select Consortium retailers beginning March 8th.
