Color: Light Gold / Prism Pink / Hero Brown
Consortium has dipped into the adidas Performance roster for the first time, taking one of their most iconic running models – the adiZERO Adios 2 – and given it a lifestyle perspective. adidas will be releasing four models in two drops for fall/winter 2013, with the attention to detail that Consortium is known for. While this adiZERO version still features technical elements, such as synthetic suede and waterproof mesh used on the forefront of the shoe, the contrast effect over the rest of the shoe is unexpected and striking.
Three of the models feature a shiny reptilian effect, a texture that’s been used heavily in the Originals back catalogue, while the fourth pair utilises a camo print. Using luxurious Italian leather to give a snakeskin look, the Adios 2 is pushed into a direction it’s never ventured in before, while the camo version is as wearable as it is functional.

The adiZERO Adios 2 has been a popular performance running trainer for the adidas brand. For fall/winter 2013, Consortium brings its point-of-view to the design table, introducing a bold camo print. Unlike the other three reptilian make-ups produced for the collection, the camouflage version is executed in an all over print on light technical mesh and synthetic suede. White leather 3-Stripes and a white midsole contrast against the print for an experimental approach, while the alternate coloured lace pack brings even more pops of colour for the wearer.
