Next exciting partner in the adidas Originals Five-Two 3 Brands Pack is Porter from Japan, known for their oustanding luggage collections. They worked on the Nizza Hi and added some great features to it, while presenting an overall solid shoe.
Japan’s PORTER brand is synonymous with great luggage, named after the diligent characters who handle more bags and cases than anyone else, and their orange-lined TANKER series has been part of the collection since 1983. PORTER’s take on the Nizza Hi uses a similar black padded nylon and orange lining to bring out the very best in the Nizza’s simple paneling.
A zipper feature down the shoe’s heel takes the baggage theme one step beyond any standard collaboration, encapsulating the look perfectly while serving a utilitarian purpose in ease-of-wear. The vulcanized sole carries black foxing, completed with a gum outsole, and tonal 3-Stripes and the easily recognisable branding for both companies is highlighted on the tongue, acting as the stamp of authenticity on this perfect representation of PORTER’s bestselling blend of functionality, premium quality and the cutting edge, packaged in, what else? A special zip pocketed tote bag.
