Color: Black / Chalk / Black
For Consortium SS14, two of streetwear’s most prolific brands and long term adidas partners, Neighborhood and Undefeated, finally come together to produce a collection of luxurious, blacked-out wares.
UNDFTD’s fashion-forward athletic approach is perfectly translated through the choice of two very different shoe models, the Micropacer and Official Mid 80s, whilst NBHD’s premium-cut nature and use of bold graphics is reflected on the uppers. Amidst the bridle leather and full nap suede lies a bold bold triple branding, showcasing UNDFTD’’s iconic Five-Strike logo and NBHD’s skull and crossbones motif within a tongue label that pays homage to the vintage years of adidas France.
- adidas Consortium release
- Limited Edition
- adidas x UNDFTD x NHBD collaboration
- Premium full leather upper
- Smooth leather lining
- Microcomputer concealed in the tongue
- Debossed and printed Neighborhood logo on the right and Undefeated logo on the left shoe
On its initial release 30 years ago, the Micropacer was a shoe of wonder, technologically pushing the boundaries with a microcomputer concealed in the tongue. For Consortium, UNDFTD selected the shoe for its relevance today - the vintage space-age runner now serving the fashion consumer.
The all-over black is indicative of both UNDFTD and NBHD’s tastes, preferring to make a statement with materials and graphics. NBHD took reign of the graphic touches, such as placement of each brand’s logo, and chose to use premium full leather on the upper and smooth leather lining for the luxurious feel that the brand so often references.
