Color: Grey / Mint Green
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 in its original performance format has been a popular runner’s choice, with over 100 marathon wins to date. Now, for a lighter approach, Consortium reaches to a paler colour palette of grey and mint green, giving it its own characteristic spin. Working with a light grey synthetic suede and technical mesh for the front of the shoe and on the tongue, the rest is sharply contrasted with a minty green reptilian execution. Grey laces keep it tonal while the alternate coral laces give even more contrast.
