Campus 80s ‘Fight Club’, New Balance ‘College’ Pack and more – size? previews – April 2021
On size? previews this month, we've taken a bit more of an in-depth look at a few shoes you might have gotten a glimpse of earlier in the year, as well as a few first-looks at upcoming projects.
Following on from last years 'Romeo & Juliet' Superstar, we've created another film orientated release together with adidas Originals, this time looking to director David Fincher's cult classic, Fight Club. The shoe in question is the Campus 80's, which features many details throughout that point to significant moments in the film.
The New Balance 550 has been well received after its recent bring-back, and we've also put our own spin on it, accompanied by another classic from the archive, the 574. Taking inspiration from American College sports apparel and classic varsity colours, both feature a combination of ochre-red and cream, with the 550 presented in a premium leather, and the 574 wrapped in all over suede.
Nike's outdoor influenced Free Trail returns again this year, and first up are two colourways reminiscent of a couple that dropped back in 2012. Both colours make use of hairy suede across the uppers, and sit on top of a midsole unit that had also been used on shoes such as the Special Field Boot used by the US Military.
A few months back we hinted at the release of a great City Series shoe that would be getting a reissue this year, and this is it, the adidas Originals Napoli. A vibrant red suede upper, detailed with white leather stripes and heel tab, and sitting on a full gum outsole, and exclusively available from size?. Another excellent addition to the ongoing collection.
This year we're celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the iconic Stan Smith, the white leather tennis shoe worn by the tennis legend. For 2021, adidas are continuing to expand their range of eco-freindly shoes, and the Stan Smith is a major part of that rollout. We were given then opportunity to add our touch on a size? exclusive version this year, resulting in a subtle variation on the OG colour placement, just with a touch of our signature orange thrown in all the key areas.
