This is a matrimony that will be happily blessed by slope shredders and urban crawlers alike-- adidas Originals has teamed up with snowboarding company, Burton, to bring the latter's slope style into the concrete jungle. This collaborative collection is quite an impressive one, consisting of seven footwear styles and 21 apparel pieces. First up for preview is a hefty winter boot inspired by the Burton Freestyle snowboard boots, and a co-branded navy fleece-lined graphic hoodie. Thus far, the collection seems to be headed for a cool, muted masculine tone in greys and blues, but the rest of the collection could still surprise with bright pops of colors, since Burton is not exactly a brand to shy away from neons brights and eye-catching patterns for its shredders. This seems like a collection which will be perfect transitional pieces back to reality for the shredders who wish they can live in a lodge and wear their snowboarding boots all day. Sure we all have to leave the mountains sometime, but that doesn't mean we can't live vicariously through our clothes-- appropriate clothes. via: HS
