adidas announces the global launch of ALPHAEDGE 4D, engineered with the ADIDAS 4D midsole, for controlled energy return and breathable cushioning during intensive training runs.

ALPHAEDGE 4D features a sport-inspired geometric lattice structure, that provides stability, support and pin-point energy return, precisely where needed during the most challenging training run or workout.

Klaus Rolshoven, director of the envelope pushing Future Design division remarked " 4D is our most ambitious midsole to date. What started out as a conceptual FUTURECRAFT innovation, has not only allowed us to completely re-think our manufacturing processes, but to create a data-driven experience that breaks new ground in performance capability and comfort.”

ALPHAEDGE 4D features a sport-inspired geometric lattice structure, that provides stability, support and pin-point energy return, precisely where needed during the most challenging training run or workout. For exact, controlled energy return - the intricate lattice structure and responsive cushioning absorbs pressure from any angle and returns energy, propelling the foot forward and supporting movement where needed.

The ADIDAS 4D midsole is printed with light and oxygen, using Digital Light Synthesis, a technology pioneered by Carbon (partnership first announced in April 2017). Digital Light Synthesis is a breakthrough process that uses digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics and programmable liquid resins to print high-performance, durable polymeric products. The process uses data to translate the needs of a performance category, and eventually individual athlete or consumer, with the required movement, cushioning and stability directly in to a midsole.

A super-lightweight upper that encases your foot in a seamless sock-like fit - providing the support and comfort needed during sharp lateral movements and tight turns. Each thread is individually constructed millimeter by millimeter with FORGEFIBER - a process using TPU-coated yarn, that maximizes performance when stitched at various angles and layers for ultimate strength in motion.  The Continental rubber outsole draws on 140 years of Continental tire technology and research - with engineered traction zones to support deeper cuts and faster acceleration, regardless of surface terrain or weather.

This will be launched on Saturday 17th November at limitEDitions Barcelona .

The urban culture trailblazers from Italy team up with adidas Consortium on two new footwear styles.

It’s hard to overstate the influence of SLAM JAM on European urban culture. Founded by Luca Benini in Ferrara, north Italy, three decades ago, it has distributed some of the most iconic brands of that time period all over the world. SLAM JAM’s keen curatorial eye, rooted in a deep understanding of sub-cultures, introduced the cross-pollination of streetwear and ‘high’ fashion long before such a thing entered the mainstream. This approach carried over into the SLAM JAM retail operations, which, across its various locations, helped pioneer the ‘concept’ store.

The latest SLAM JAM collaboration sees them joining forces with the adidas Consortium team on two exclusive new footwear styles. Together, the two pairs – one drawn from adidas’ rich heritage, the other from the cutting-edge of the sportswear brand’s developments – allude to the staying power of SLAM JAM.

First up is a new take on the ever-iconic 80s Superstar. The SLAM JAM iteration is a masterclass in minimalism, offset by distinctive detailing. The instantly-recognizable shelltoe of the Superstar is here presented in an entirely smooth leather, while the heel panel is entirely blacked out. This refined approach is offered a subtle counterpoint by the introduction of asymmetrical, zig-zagging stitches on the shoe’s lateral.

The second style sees SLAM JAM applying a similar aesthetic approach to a very different type of shoe. The P.O.D. S3.1 is a contemporary running-inspired style that offers an evolved take on 90s style cushioning. BOOST technology is utilized on the heel where it matters most and a ‘Point of Deflection’ bridge offers the perfect midpoint between stability and flexibility for a lifestyle shoe. The SLAM JAM version is presented in an understated colorway of whites and creams, rendered across uppers that move between snug neoprene and soft leather. Contrast materials and colors on the heel tab, lacing and exposed tongue add the perfect amount of subtle finesse to a shoe designed to endure as long as SLAM JAM’s own legacy.

adidas NMD_CS1 Primeknit
15 . 11 . 18
adidas Originals presents a new iteration of the NMD_CS1 silhouette this month which takes inspiration from Zen-Buddhism. Using the NMD_CS1 model’s minimalist upper as a canvas, the release applies the Zen symbol “Enso” to the shoe as a mark of freedom of creativity. A longstanding symbol of Zen-Buddhism, the “Enso” symbol is most commonly represented as a single black circular brushstroke, and represents the moment that the mind becomes free, allowing the body to create.

The free-flowing form of the “Enso” represents strength, enlightenment and elegance, but it is also often used to represent the Japanese concept of “wabi-sabi” – a belief that the imperfections of an object are what makes it uniquely beautiful. For its latest outing, the NMD_CS1 silhouette channels these principles into a minimalist design, featuring a white woven Primeknit upper, placed atop the NMD series’ iconic Boost™ midsole with EVA heel and forefoot inserts.

Footwear White/Footwear White/Core Black

The shoe’s tonal white design is constrasted with the placement of an “Enso” symbol across the upper of each shoe, connecting to create a full circle, while the NMD_CS1’s signature medial side leather patches are decorated with a traditional fish graphic and an “Enso” graphic respectively. Finishing touches include a woven heel tab with text graphics a contrast black rubber outsole, creating a minimalist shoe design elevated with enduring philosophical considerations and a clean, modern perspective.

The adidas NMD_CS1 Primeknit launches on Thursday November 15th at limitEDitions Barcelona .

Now in its fourth season, adidas Originals and Alexander Wang collaborate once again to present a collection that sticks unwaveringly to its guiding principle; ‘Strictly Wrong’.

Melding together iconic pieces from the Three Stripes archives with the New York-based designer’s progressive eye, the collection is highlighted by its ever-popular footwear styles, which subverts the norm with an inventive use of construction, colour and reworked branding that creates a new icon all of its own.

adidas Originals = PHARRELL WILLIAMS SOLARHU Capsule Collection
Lauching Saturday 10th of November 2018
adidas Originals and Pharrell Williams build upon their collaborative Hu series with a continuation of the SOLARHU story. Taking inspiration from the fearless colors, bold patterns, and stylistic flair of East Africa, Pharrell Williams continues his experimentation with prints and textures. Reiterating the shared belief that, through sport, we all have the power to transform lives, the collection draws on the tradition of long distance running that has a rich heritage in the region.

Revisiting his now iconic Hu NMD, Pharrell plays with the established aesthetic markers of the SOLARHU collaboration. Expressed in four bold colourways, Power Blue, Clear Blue, Black, and White, each sneaker in the collection features a printed collar, designed to evoke traditional East African weaving techniques in a medley of colours. Continuing the motif of motivation through language, each pair is emblazoned with the words ‘Empower’ and ‘Inspire’ embroidered in Chinese lettering across a primeknit upper.

The adidas Originals = PHARRELL WILLIAMS SOLARHU collection launches Saturday 10th of November at limitEDitions Barcelona.

adidas Consortium x Kinfolk
Launch 10th November

adidas joins forces with the Brooklyn-based store/collective in the year that they celebrate a decade of advancing ‘a Kinfolk life’

The friends behind Kinfolk first came together in 2008, drawn to each other from the far-flung locales of New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. A desire to create products and experiences that captured their shared interests and sensibilities transcended any geographical distance and, as they enter their second decade together, they continue to hone and evolve the concept of ‘a Kinfolk life’. Perhaps best known internationally for the meticulously-curated streetwear selections in their flagship store, Kinfolk also apply their combined creativity to multidisciplinary spaces in Brooklyn and Tokyo.

The adidas Consortium Ultraboost x Kinfolk launches on Saturday 10th of November at limitEDitions Barcelona.

It is this combined creativity that comes together in the Kinfolk UltraBOOST and the refined, minimalist outcome is testament to how in-sync the Kinfolk family are. What could have been an overload of competing elements is instead a considered study in shades of blue, rendered across a two-tone Primeknit upper and luxurious nubuck leather on the vamp overlay and heel clip. At a point in their history where Kinfolk are naturally taking stock of where they currently are and where they’re looking to head, the Kinfolk UltraBOOST strikes a balance between contemporary elegance and futuristic technology.

adidas Performance, Issue Type. Undefeated Action Capabilities.’ These are the words that appear printed across a selection of pieces in the latest collaboration between adidas and Los Angeles-based streetwear icons Undefeated. The purely functional, maximum-impact wording exemplifies the qualities that each brand brings to the partnership. It is a collection for those who push the natural strength of the human body to its limits, for those who won’t let anyone, or anything get in the way of their program. Equipment for those who run under midnight streetlights and train in the twilight of an emerging urban sunrise.

This idea is captured in both the bespoke, grayscale camouflage patterns that appear throughout the capsule and the campaign imagery itself, turning the lens on the boxing regime of Pedro ‘Lil Pete’ Duran, the California local who has been sponsored and supported by Undefeated since he was just twelve years old. The result is a synthesis of two worlds that require uncompromising commitment to succeed in, rendered in low-fidelity images that capture an intensely personal pursuit.

The function-first ideals of the collection are given clout through an all-star line-up of pioneering performance technologies. The footwear styles feature recent adidas advances including BOOST soles for ultra-responsive cushioning and Primeknit uppers that wrap the foot in adaptive, lightweight and comfortable support. Meanwhile the apparel range is precision-tailored for beating personal goals and conquering urban environments.

adidas Snowboarding by BAPE
 Launching 3rd November
For Fall/Winter 2018, adidas has teamed up with iconic Japanese streetwear brand A Bathing Ape® (BAPE®) on a snowboarding capsule collection applying BAPE®’s iconic design language to a range of adidas Snowboarding silhouettes.

Situated in the heart of Tokyo, one of the leading fashion hubs of the world, A Bathing Ape® (or BAPE®) strives to introduce Japanese fashion culture to the world. Since the brand's establishment in 1993, it has remained as a symbol of street fashion for more than 25 years. Thus far, it has produced iconic design items, original patterns and characters such as “APE HEAD”, “BAPE® CAMO”, “BAPE STA™”, “SHARK HOODIE” and “BABY MILO®” etc.?

 adidas Snowboarding by BAPE® Fall/Winter 2018 sees the popular BAPE® “LINE 1ST CAMO”, an outline variation of the original ABC camo, applied to a range of adidas Snowboarding apparel and footwear silhouettes, elevated with premium materials and Aurora reflective print details.

The adidas Snowboarding by BAPE collection launches Saturday 3rd of November at limitEDitions Barcelona .

The collaboration’s apparel offer comprises the BAPE® Tech Hoodie, BAPE® Slopetrotter Pant and BAPE® Snow Jacket – a comprehensive winter sport wardrobe. The BAPE® Tech Hoodie, constructed from Climalite® fabric with a durable water-repellent coating, offers lightweight insulation and sweat-wicking benefits, while the application of LINE 1ST CAMO in Aurora reflective print, as long as BAPE® and adidas Trefoil logo branding on the right and left chest, add a distinctive streetwear touch to the slope essential.

The BAPE® Snow Jacket boasts a 10k/10k waterproof fabric, contrasting an Aurora LINE 1ST CAMO print lower panel with a blacked-out upper torso, offering maximum visibility with unmissable BAPE® style. The result is a comprehensive snowboarding wardrobe combining pinnacle adidas Snowboarding tech with a timeless BAPE® aesthetic.

Next up, the BAPE® Slopetrotter Pant assumes a 5k/5k breathable shell construction while an elastic waistband with adjustable webbing belt ensures a comfortable fit. The pant’s Aurora LINE 1ST CAMO print is accented with contrast pocket panels, finished with BAPE® and adidas branding.

Based on a key adidas Skateboarding model, the 3ST.002 features nubuck upper with a sockfit slip-on construction, accented by LINE 1ST CAMO in a thermos-reactive allover print. Additional reflective branding details on the lateral quarter complete the look, pushing the minimalist aesthetic of the original 3ST.002 silhouette into a whole new space.
