Adidas Originals Superstar 80s PK

01. A Consortium release.

Words

Utilizing one of the brand's biggest fabrication breakthroughs in recent years, the Superstar 80s model gets a Primeknit treatment this summer. Released in both black and white colourways, the modernized version of this Adidas icon is lightweight, breathable, and has an added sleekness compared to the original.

Adidas Originals Campus 80s

01. Core Black.
02. Dark Blue.

Words

Campus 80s are regularly available in Japan and Europe, but less so in North America. An iconic silhouette, partially thanks to The Beastie Boys, and probably more so due to their well-balanced design – they're one of my personal favourites. This summer Adidas have released an archive-inspired version of the shoe in arguably the two best colour options: navy and black.

Adidas Energy Boost ESM

—01. Techfit upper.

Words

The variety of Adidas shoes available featuring Boost technology is quite impressive. Their Pure and Ultra Boost soles are certainly standouts, but the less minimal aesthetic of the Energy Boost caught my eye and pulled me in. It's the first time I've worn any shoes with the innovative foam cushioning, and I am pretty impressed with the level of comfort. This particular model also features a Torsion midsole and Techfit upper, which combine for a great feel, inside and out.

Adidas ZX500 OG Made in Germany

—01. Deer leather upper.

Words

Adidas has had an incredible amount of success so far this year with limited releases. You can surely add their Made in Germany footwear offerings to that list, utilizing clean, white and cream treatments in premium leather. Of the two styles the brand has chosen to produce in its home country, my choice is the ZX500 for its no-nonsense heritage running aesthetic and attractive silhouette, making for the perfect spring shoe.

Adidas by Raf Simons Stan Smith Spring 2015

Image

—01. Clear Sky.

Words

I can't recall, in my relatively brief experience of the industry, a shoe being released to such acclaim only to be so overdone and over-worn in such a short period of time. It's truly a testament to the modern landscape and how quickly trends are moving today. That said, if any shoe can stand up to the hype and navigate the varying levels of appeal and acceptance, it's the Stan Smith. This spring Raf Simons has again re-coloured the shoe in solid tones, the pale pink and clear sky being the standouts for me personally.

Raf Simons x Adidas Sandal

01. Black.
02. Navy/Green.

Words

Adidas' steady rollout of collaborations is only going to increase this year with anticipated releases from Pharrell and Kanye, but the more interesting products come from their work within the fashion industry. Raf Simons has been working with the brand for a number of seasons now and, like it or not, his spring collection includes a selection of solid-coloured and two-tone sandals at a premium price compared to the standard Adilette Slide.

Adidas Stan Smith White Perforated Leather

01

Image

—01. White on white.

Words

While Adidas continue to roll out the Stan Smith in seemingly endless colour options, there are few that stand out. This all white version, however, featuring a perforated leather upper and tonal tongue portrait and heel tab, gives the shoe a fresh feel and a crisp look.
