size? x adidas Originals ZX 10,000C
Following on from last month’s reveal of the archive classic, the adidas Originals ZX 5000, we’ve also turned our hand to the latest addition to the ‘ZX’ family, the ZX 10,000 C. First introduced towards the end of 2018, the development team incorporated much of the original DNA that designer Jacques Chassaing featured in some of his most infamous creations within the running series. As with the ZX 5000, we’ve applied our signature colour palette of black, white and orange, but flipped the black to make it the dominant colour this time around.
adidas Originals Superstar ‘Romeo & Juliet’ – size? Exclusive
This vibrant two-shoe pack of adidas Originals Superstar’s tells the story of Romeo & Juliet, via director Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 ‘modern day’ adaptation. Romeo takes it’s medial graphic panels from the patterned shirts worn by Leonardo DiCaprio and the rest of the Montague’s during their turf war with the rival Capulet’s, while the outside is lined with the palm Trees found on Verona Beach. The bright pink top Juliet wears shortly before taking the sleeping potion is referenced on the upper of the second pair.
Nike Air Force 1 Craft
On first sight this might appear like any other ‘white-on-white’ but its worth getting the Nike Air Force 1 Craft in hand for a closer inspection. The standard smooth upper leather has been swapped out for an upgraded tumbled leather, and there are numerous details dotted throughout that update Bruce Kilgore’s original format.
Reebok Aztec – size? Exclusive
This colourway of Reebok’s archival nylon runner looks to the fabled story of ‘Dan and Dave’, a Reebok marketing campaign launched ahead of the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona which pitted Decathlete’s Dan O’Brien and Dave Johnson against each other to see who would come out triumphant at the games.
