From the ground up

Hender Scheme and adidas Originals have officially confirmed a footwear collaboration, including handmade versions of the Micro Pacer, NMD and Superstar.

In late June, Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi from Japanese retailer United Arrows & Sons leaked an image of the Micro Pacer, more or less confirming that the German sportswear brand would be working with Hender Scheme. Now Business of Fashion is reporting that all three shoes are set to release at selected stores worldwide on August 17, for between $900 and $1,000 USD.

Fans of uncompromising quality will be happy to hear that Hender Scheme is producing the sneakers, as opposed to adidas. Each of the 800 pairs are crafted in the same Japanese ateliers as Hender Scheme’s homage offerings, made using the same leather.

Hender Scheme founder Ryo Kashiwazaki also revealed: “We are making these shoes our way, so we can only make so many. But we also love sneakers, and what adidas does in a different way, like manual versus industrial products. So maybe we can find a way in the future where these methods can work together.”

Stay posted for more information as it arrives.
