Sneaker Freaker x adidas Consortium Torsion Integral

For their first collaboration with adidas, Sneaker Freaker revived one of the German sporting good giant’s most iconic and underrated silhouettes – the Integral. Included as part of the sneaker is adidas Torsion, a plastic arch support system introduced in the late ’80s, embedded in the sole of the shoe bridging between the toe and the heel that supports the midfoot which minimizes flex and enhances push-off.

For the collaboration, each participant created a version of the Integral, both linked by the common application of tone and materials. The first sneaker builds layer upon layer of mint and cool grey, and places it all atop a black midsole splattered with white speckles. The combination of black suede, mint nubuck and grey leather is complemented by a mesh toe box for a highly detailed yet subtle sneaker. The second pair makes use of violet and salmon and feature a chunky white midsole adorned with grey speckles.

[UPDATE] The sneakers will be available straight from Sneaker Freaker on November 1, followed by a release on December 7 at all adidas Consortium retailers.
