Lets face it – the archive of product from adidas Originals is like a sneaker Damascus – there are a plethora of models available, many of which have gone on to become sporting and cultural icons both.
Sneaker connoisseurs are often spoilt for choice when it comes to re-issues of older, iconic models but The Unforeseen pack from adidas Consortium flips this on its head with some of the archives most sought after silhouettes re-worked with special materials and features to create a collection of truly unforeseen kicks.
First up in drop one of the pack is a re-interpretation of arguably one of the most classic and desirable signature basketball shoes that was ever released by adidas and pre-empted the signature shoe craze as far back as 1978.
The Non-Dyed comes correct with a buttery, premium, full-grain leather upper that is soft, supportive and extremely comfortable. The pebbled, white midsole will be instantly recognisable to die hard basketball sneaker fanatics while the herringbone outsole is still perfectly suited for perfecting your sky hook in the paint if your headed for the courts rather than the streets. Branding is minimal and limited to the contrast stitched 3-Stripes and an embossed Trefoil on the tongue.
