For its stylized take on the adidas Consortium Superstar 80v, Taiwan-based sneaker boutique INVINCIBLE looked to the indigenous people of its native land for inspiration. The resulting black leather and grey suede colorways borrow the blue, white and red tones from traditional costumes, applying the colors to the small row of beads that surround the fold down collar. A zig-zag patterned edge adds more emphasis to this particular element, while pairing with a fish-scale texture on the tongue — a nod to the material found on traditional armor used for ceremonial purposes. Embroidered three stripes and a custom-designed sockliner — mixing tribal elements and logo references — round out the details. The grey version of the Superstar 80v INVINCIBLE will launch on November 21 at No.42 Paris, No.74 Berlin and select Consortium retailers. The monochromatic black version will release exclusively at INVINCIBLE, No.42 Paris, and No.74 Berlin on the same day.
