2020 has seen us collaborate with adidas Originals for a city-spanning collection; harking back to 2010’s ‘Anniversary Series’ city theme, we’ve looked to the original silhouette’s twin cities for our latest releases. We’ve seen Dublin, Manchester and London twinned with Liverpool, Cordoba and Shanghai, and now it’s time to reveal our fourth model and Glasgow’s twin, Havana.
Lifting its moniker from the cultural melting pot that is Cuba’s capital city, the Havanna shares the same tooling, design lines and materials as the Glasgow.
Nodding to the expressive colours of the city’s eclectic architecture, we’ve painted the Havana with a pale blue hue across its supple suede base, with touches of washed-out yellow and pink on the leather overlays to further represent the vibrancy of the area’s diverse structures. Gold ‘Havana’ lettering decorates the sidewalls and lace-tips, while a signature gum rubber sole unit provides an archival aesthetic, and 1/2020 detailing at the heel highlights the pair’s limited nature.
The same as the pack’s previous three releases, the Havana’s footbed alludes to the Glasgow’s rich navy and red colourway, and the pair arrive in a shoebox that features Glasgow-inspired detailing on the interior. What’s more, we’re also putting together another collectable city guide that sheds light on the shoe’s inspiration, Havana’s history and much, much more.
Our exclusive adidas Originals Havana launches exclusively in size? Glasgow on Friday 9th October.
It will also be available via the size? launches app soon, and in all size? stores on Friday 16th October, priced at £90 and available in both men’s and women’s sizes. Good Luck!
