Editor's Notes: 032c and adidas have teamed up again to launch a four-piece capsule collection, once again exploring the GSG model. The GSG TR and GSG Mule are based on an adidas boot made specifically for Germany’s Grenzschutz Gruppe 9 (“Border Protection Group 9”) tactical police force.
Two years ago, 032c first revamped the original GSG9.2 combat boot, and then earlier this year, the Berlin-based brand returned with a complete revamp of the tactical footwear, turning the boot into two brand-new silhouettes. The Mule taps into the current fashion Zeitgeist, which is obsessed with formal comfort. The fact that a tactical boot reserved for Germany’s version of SWAT was turned into a slip-on is just short of a stroke of genius.
Previously, the collaboration has stuck to military-focused colorways – black and army green. But now with this release, 032c and adidas have changed things up, with a futuristic silver metallic colorway.

On the accessories front, the duo have produced a military-inspired backpack and tote. The functional metallic silver bags are accented by grey detailing and contrast blue and red tags. Perfectly matched with the kicks, wear the set together to get your future fits off.
