From the ground up

Following on from the influx of last seasons adidas Originals Consortium make-ups, Rod’s OG signature vintage shoe makes a welcome return for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2010 season in a variety of colorways.

Once again we see the original, slimmed down silhouette, re-interpreted first up by the Rod Laver lovers at DQM in New York City. Chris and the DQM crew prove simple is best again with three variations that will work in a range of scenarios, from denim to shorter options for the fast approaching warmer months.

This version sees a combination of leather and mesh on the upper, which, shorn of the 3-Stripes only adds to the simple, clean appeal of the model. Despite the lack of embellishments, the use of quality leather on the tongue, toe-box and heel-tab as well as touches like the suede strip for the lace-stays ensures the all-over, premium feel we’ve come to expect from Consortium releases. Further features include the Trefoil and DQM logos embossed on the tongue, the Consortium handshake label on the heel, herringbone outsole, Consortium branded eyelets and DQM lace tips with a lace flip to boot.

The sneaker wil be available in Navy, Green and Lemon and is dropping at your local Consortium retailer from March 13th.
