This month’s episode of size? previews sees a return back to the studio finally to take a look at what’s to come over the next few months. We’ve got some great new exclusive projects created together with Reebok and adidas Originals, a reissue of the original Rod Laver, an interesting new take on the Dunk, and the return of the esteemed City Series ‘Paris’.
Nike Dunk Low ‘Dunked’
The Dunk has seen a lot of momentum since new colourways and collaborations have started appearing throughout the year. This newest iteration still retains the classic panelling that makes a Dunk, but updates things with a thicker, misshapen midsole unit, exposed tongue, and a wide leather heel tab.
adidas Originals City Series ‘Paris’
We’ve seen a host of great City Series models revived over the course of this year, but one of the most anticipated has to be the Paris. The last notable reissue was actually our own 20 pair exclusive released to celebrate the opening of size? Paris back in 2012. This latest version is spot on, complete with high-quality leather uppers, suede toe panel, and the slim sole unit to finish things off.
Reebok Club C ‘Self-Dye’ – size? Exclusive
Following up several great versions of the Club C that we’ve enjoyed working on, is this new DIY themed option. Working closely together with Reebok and Dye manufacturer Rit Dye, each canvas-covered Club C will come with a set of colours that you can use to transform the pair any way you like, making each pair completely unique.
adidas Originals Rod Laver OG
There have been several versions of Tennis icon Rod Laver’s signature shoe released over the decades, but it’s hard to beat the original. The thick cushioned sole unit and mesh-covered sidewalls will always look best when presented in the OG white/green colourway.
adidas Originals SL76 ‘Montreal 76’ – size? Exclusive
Lastly, we give you a preview at a new Olympic themed pairing of SL76 we’ve been working together with adidas Originals. Created to celebrate the now delayed Olympic Games, we took a look back at the interesting story surrounding the Montreal games of 76. The duo of colourways nods to both the Lottery tickets used to fund the event itself, and the colours found in Canadian designer Georges Huel’s graphic advertisements.
