In addition to the detailed shots of DJ Muro’s Pro Shell we posted today, shots of Jim Thompson’s contribution to the adidas Consortium “Your Story” campaign are also out to amp up the energy ahead of their Saturday release. The designer from Sydney’s Three Over One transforms the classic Matchplay silhouette to give it an uncomplicated, but vintage look inspired by kicks from adidas’ Track & Field archives. Featuring a black waxed leather upper and a matching pigskin suede toe-box, Thompson’s decision to leave out the inner-line gives this shoe a hand-made feel. A distressed white rubber midsole that matches the branding on the ankle enhance the old-school personality of this sneaker. Three Over One branding finishes off the look under the Tri-Foil tag on the tongue. Look for these and other pieces of the adidas Consortium collection at select retailers beginning Saturday, May 19th.
Release Date: May 19th, 2012 (Saturday)
