VEIL x adidas “Purple Swamphen” Oscillate Warm Trail Runner

Everyone struggles with staying motivated through the winter. The new adidas Oscillate Warm running shoes make it a little easier to get out there thanks to breathable CLIMAWARM™ to keep your feet warm and dry, as well as a flexible upper and heel-to-toe cushioning. With the launch of this new model, adidas invited apparel brand VEIL to design its own edition titled the “Purple Swamphen”.

The color palettes chosen resemble the large bird with a very loud explosive call. Evidence shows that the Romans kept Purple Swamphens as decorative birds at large villas and expensive houses. They were regarded as noble birds and were among the few birds that Romans did not eat. VEIL chose this subject as a reminder of what’s out there in the environment, as there are so many wonderful species facing extinction, we should enjoy their existence while they last.

Coming with this trail runner, as packaging for the pair of Oscillate Warm, is a VEIL backpack with matching colors. Designed for short trips, the backpack sharing the same title has multiple divisions to store your laptop, clothes, and of course, a dividable lower section for your camera or sneakers.

Check out the pack in more detail after the jump.
