Launch|Air Force 1 Flyknit|28.01.16

Combining the old with the new and the 2 most popular trainers, the Nike Air Force 1 and the Nike Flyknit a whole new world of comfort has been created.The Air Force 1 as popular as it is is a heavier sneaker compared to others so the weightless feel to the classic silhouette combined with its modern Fly knit technology is a huge success.

The Nike Sportswear team took their inspiration from long walks through Paris deciding they could make the shoe lighter, more flexible and reducing that dreaded crease along the toe vamp. By using injected unit rubber tooling instead of polyurethane tooling and micro-engineering each stitch they created the featherweight upper for “maximum comfort and minimal weight”.

The adidas Originals x Pharrell collaboration is back with his new “Supershell” collection.

After the success of the Supercolor pack, this new collection is adding another unique spin to the much loved Superstar silhouette.

blog 1

A collaboration within a collaboration, Pharrell has worked with a series of artists to create this pack and each of them have reworked the shell toe according to their style. Within this artist series there are 2 collections, the Artwork that features a print design and the Sculpted that features a 3D embossed toe.

OFFSPRING will be stocking the designs by Todd James, Mr. and Pharrell himself all designed on the all black or all white mono Superstar.

Todd James is a celebrated New York artist whose paintings and installations have been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide, including both the 2001 and 2015 Venice Biennales. His immediate and insistent works draw influence from Saturday morning cartoons, subway graffiti, American popular culture and world events.
“Todd James is a guy who’s always marched to the beat of his own drum. He’s just
always created these super interesting paintings and drawings. He brings you into his
own world. Sometimes certain things have an effect on you that you can’t really put
into words.”
-Pharrell Williams

blog

Mr. is a Japanese contemporary artist based in Saitama Prefecture, Japan. He works in a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, and video – though his works are all closely related in aesthetics, style, and theme. Rendered in the anime style, the girls in his paintings incorporate the unique Japanese concept of ‘moe’ to depict a new form of beauty and refracted sexuality of the contemporary age. In 2014, he set his art to music by directing the unique music video for Pharrell Williams’s It Girl.
“Mr is a wizard. His mind and his work remind us all that there’s an inner child in all
of us. It’s interesting because when other people try to paint the same things it can
send off very different messages. But somehow, Mr. is a master of depicting
innocence, and I love that about his work. Mr., which really means
master.”
-Pharrell Williams

The collection will be available online and in-store from the 7th August 2015. There will be events on the weekend of launch in our OFFSPRING Camden, Commercial St. and Selfridges London stores, follow @offspringhq for updates.

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.

On Thursday 28th August the Commercial Street store in Shoreditch, London hosted the launch party for one of OFFSPRING‘s most anticipated collaborations.

Inspired by the colours of the desert at dawn and dusk, this Onitsuka Tiger x asics and OFFSPRING pack of two was designed by one of our very own, sports buyer Aman Tak.

3. Once the scan is complete you will see the exclusive reveal of our brand new Onitsuka Tiger x asics x OFFSPRING models.

Inspiration

The colours of the desert at dusk and night are the inspiration behind Desert Pack, a collaboration between Onitsuka Tiger, ASICS and sneaker boutique Offspring.

Two silhouettes bring together the best of sister brands Onitsuka Tiger and ASICS.

Onitsuka Tiger’s SHAW RUNNER is the cold and atmospheric night version of the Desert duo with its navy, white and tropical-green colour combination, and blue speckles on the white sole.

The Desert colourway of the ever-fresh GEL LYTE V tells the story of a sandy wilderness at dusk.  Pink, beige and camel echo a post-sunset sky that reflects dark, mysterious shadows swallowed by the deep blue of twilight.
