This special-edition adidas Consortium ZX 420 has its roots in Crooked Tongues' online forum circa 2005, where freelance illustrator Peter O'Toole and noted adidas collector Quote first became acquainted. Their relationship eventually spawned a poster featuring 98 pairs from Quote's own collection, hand illustrated by O'Toole. It wasn't long before adidas took notice, and the Three-Stripes would go on to commission a limited-edition book from the two. Accompanying the publication of the volume -- entitled Quote's Archive -- was the opportunity to design a corresponding shoe. The duo chose to work on the adidas Originals ZX 420, featuring a colorway inspired by the adidas Denver. Both the book and resulting ZX420 "Quotool" launches October 25th at No.74 Berlin, followed by a wider release through select adidas Consortium retailers starting November 15.
