For adidas Originals' Five-Two-3 City Pack, the label brought in skate photographer/graffiti writer, faKso, to work on the classic Nizza Hi.

faKso started out in the nineties as a skate photographer and later began documenting graffiti writers and their work process. With skating and graffiti as his background, Fakso has a raw and uncompromising approach to photography and is known for documenting the hard and extreme situations that are true to life.

For his collaboration with adidas Originals, the photographer worked his black and white images into the shoe upper contrasted with a black toe box, sole and tongue. The stripes are kept clean and slightly camouflaged in white, but the shoes are accented with bright yellow on the tongue tag, out soles and piping. Bound to look good with something sleek like dark denim with a simple white tee, or black over khakis, the kicks are now available alongside the other kicks from the pack at Berlin's Solebox.
