adidas will relaunch its limited edition Consortium sneaker range for Holiday 2011. Rather than bursting back onto the scene with yet another collaboration or ‘in your face’ colors and materials, adidas chose to take a more subtle and thoughtful route.
At first glance the Three Stripes present an all white pack. Well thought through, branding has been kept very minimal and adidas concentrated on producing high quality versions of its classic sneaker assortment. “The finest pig skin, nubuck and goatskin is embellished with waxed laces, metal aglets and the use of a heavier gauge thread, which gives the shoes a more luxurious hand-crafted feel. Inside, the lining has also been stripped back, highlighting their raw essence.”
The outcome is certainly very clean and in line with current trends. Is winter the best time to release an all white sneaker pack? We are not sure. Also, while we appreciate the attempt at high quality and timeless sneakers, we cannot say that the pack convinces us. What do you think?
The new adidas Consortium range consists of 5 adidas sneakers and will release November 26th, 2011.
