adidas has teamed up with the Scotland-based Hanon on an upcoming Centaur sneaker. The collaboration dug into adidas’ archives and pulled out the 1984 running shoe for a modern makeover. Using Hanon’s hometown of Aberdeen as inspiration, the sneaker features a suede, mesh, and nubuck upper in grey while accents of red complete the look. Further detail on the shoe appears in the form of dual branding via debossed heel tabs and embroidered Consortium tongue pulls. The Hanon flame appears on the left shoe whilst the classic adidas Trefoil is applied on the right.
A special edition dust bag comes with a number of pairs for the launch of the Centaur and to mark the collaboration, a limited edition ‘granite’ t-shirt will be released in store only.
Look for the sneaker in store and online beginning January 26th. The sneaker will also available No.6 in London and No.74 in Berlin on January 26th 2013. From February 2nd the pack will be available at selected Consortium stockists.
