Using some of Nike’s favourite silhouettes and adding 3 new sneakerboot styles, this AW14 collection takes on the Belmont Ivy print in navy and burgundy for a classic, autumnal feel.

When taking a closer look at the print the ivy leaves are in fact ripped up pieces of the One Pound note, a subtle nod to Liberty’s British heritage.

adidas Originals ‘Fall of the Wall’ pack

adidas Originals are honouring the 25th anniversary of the collapse of the Berlin wall and marking this history defining moment with the release of the ‘Fall of the Wall’ pack, reworking the classic 1989-released ZX8000 runner in three unique colourways.

adidasOriginals-BerlinWall_12

1989 was a year that redefined the social landscape of Germany as a nation divided was brought back together after 37 years with the collapse of this infamous wall.

Constructed in Germany, the pack takes direct inspiration from the three American Allied checkpoints that were located around the East/West Germany border; ‘Alpha’, ‘Bravo’ and ‘Charlie’.

adidasOriginals-BerlinWall_05

Located 160km from Berlin, Checkpoint Alpha was one of the most important German borders during the Cold War. Taking inspiration from the crossing’s dark building and large stretches of grey asphalt, the ‘Alpha’ features black leather uppers with tonal mesh panelling.

adidasOriginals-BerlinWall_02

Inspired by the pastel hues of Checkpoint Bravo, this ZX 8000 is constructed from salmon pink nubuck with synthetic underlays, a bright yellow heel cage and light aqua accents running throughout.

adidasOriginals-BerlinWall_08

The most famous of all the German border crossings, Checkpoint Charlie was located right in the heart of Berlin. ‘Charlie’ is decked out in premium white leather with tonal canvas underlays, finished with a black heel cage and a natural leather lining.

This highly exclusive release is launching on Saturday 8th November and will be available online here and in selected Offspring stores. Check your nearest one for availability.

Nike Sneakerboots Collection – Air Max 90

Built around the idea that “more is more,” the Nike Air Max 90 defined an era of excess and bigger-than-life personalities.

Ho14_SneakerBoots_Hero_Mens_AirMax90_33423 In the past, dreadful weather confined the Air Max 90 to the wardrobe, but now the SneakerBoot version breaks that boundary.

HO14_NSW_AM90_V_M_3QF_33420

The powerhouse Nike designer Tinker Hatfield created the original Nike Air Max 90 more than two decades ago, and the beloved shoe isn’t easy to adapt, explains designer Ben Yun about the SneakerBoot creation process:

“It was very intimidating. The shoe is so well recognized, I sometimes feel like changing it in any way is at some level destroying it” 

Yun then ruminated on the core characteristics of Nike SneakerBoots: timeless Nike footwear styles, lightweight functionality and rugged resistance to the elements.

HO14_NSW_Am90_V_M_3QH_33421

After honing the aesthetics of the Air Max 90 SneakerBoot, Yun then addressed functionality. The fully lined, gusseted, and waterproof upper combines with a reflective Swoosh logo, tongue, and quarter panels, as well as an aggressive outsole pattern to make the Air Max 90 SneakerBoot winter’s worst nightmare. Other details include oversized eyestays and heel-tabs, and the classic Air Max 90 midsole design that preserves the original DNA that makes the Air Max 90 SneakerBoot unmistakably Air Max.

adidas x OFFSPRING ‘Track Pack’ – Launching 03.10.14

Modern styling meets retro technology in a special adidas Originals release, exclusive to Offspring.

the-drop-date---adidas-originals-x-offspring-track-pack-zx-420-torsion-response-lite-media-04

 

This pack brings out two classic running models from the adidas archive and gives them a fresh makeover for 2014, courtesy of the Offspring creative team. Taking colour inspiration from vintage track tops and then updating the designs with premium materials,this release combines the best of retro design and modern construction in one special pack.

the-drop-date---adidas-originals-x-offspring-track-pack-zx-420-torsion-response-lite-media-08

The adidas ZX420 was first released in 1988, when it was originally crafted for the serious long distance runner. Pre-dating the Torsion system by only a few months, this lightweight model features a comfortable three-piece EVA midsole and teams it up with a well-designed upper that has stood the test of time.

the-drop-date---adidas-originals-x-offspring-track-pack-zx-420-torsion-response-lite-media-13

The adidas Torsion Response Lite premiered in 1992. This reworked version features clever and functional updates in the form of AdiPRENE cushioning in the sole unit, a revised inner sock and tongue area and special details, such as the spring-loaded lace locks. Flip the shoe upside-down and there’s the reassuring sight of the Torsion bar: one of the most-loved examples of functional design in sportswear history.

the-drop-date---adidas-originals-x-offspring-track-pack-zx-420-torsion-response-lite-media-17

Both shoes get a full premium transformation here. The adidas Torsion Response Lite finds itself re imagined in luxurious two-tone pigskin on the toe box and side panels, with a vibrant green inner sock to hold the foot steady. Special elements, such as 3M detailing on the Stripes and heel tabs, the bright pink Torsion bar and colour-matched laces, complete the makeover. The adidas ZX420 steps out in full neon regalia: purple neoprene uppers offset the black suede overlays and pink 3M Stripes. An additional full-length 3M tongue panel is the perfect sign off on this unique and exciting twin-pack.

This UK exclusive pack launches Friday 3rd October and will be available online here and in all OFFSPRING stores.
