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.

adidas first featured reptilian flair on a basketball shoe back in the ‘80s, and has since used this bold pattern on a number of Originals silhouettes. For the adiZERO Adios 2, the snakeskin effect has been used on the back half of the shoe, including the 3-Stripes, with yellow premium Italian leather. The forefront of the shoe features the technical materials of the performance model, using black synthetic suede and mesh to keep the shoe light. Accompanied with alternate green laces, Consortium’s Adios 2 offers a radical departure from the usually subdued performance make-ups.
