adidas Consortium has teamed up with Livestock for a Fall/Winter 2018 collaborative release, working closely with the Canadian sneaker retailer on a pair of winter-ready silhouettes with premium materials and elevated technical elements.

Taking a forward-thinking approach to classic outdoor running footwear design, the release presents elevated iterations of the Oregon Ultra Tech and Terrex Skychaser silhouettes, combining each shoe’s natural trail and rough terrain aesthetic with a number of utilitarian upgrades.

Both Pairs from the adidas Consortium x Livestock drop will launch on Saturday September 29th at limitEDitions Barcelona.

First up, the Oregon Ultra Tech model steps out sees the classic ‘90s running silhouette combining a classic synthetic nubuck construction with a full Gore-Tex® lining to offer a waterproof, breathable runner.

Translucent TPU overlays and a practical speed-lacing system with toggle-adjustment add support and structure to the shoe, while the shoe’s classic EVA midsole with dellinger web overlays completes the picture.

The shoe is then rendered in a Bold Gold/Black/White colorway, creating an unmissable retro sneaker in a distinctly progressive mode.

Next, the heavy duty Terrex Skychaser model receives a number of stylistic updates to reinvent the rugged trail runner. A combination of vintage suedes and nylon textiles form the upper, complemented by Gore-Tex® lining as well as dellinger-web print patterns on the shoe’s mudguard panels. Rope laces blend with the shoe’s integrated 3-stripe mark lacing system to provide consistent comfort and fit, finished with a premium leather lining and placed atop a combination EVA and Boost™ midsole with a rugged trail outsole. Presented in a Stone/Core Black/Grey Five colorway, the shoe offers a classic trail running aesthetic with subtle stylistic elevations.

A Minimalist Masterclass: adidas x Études
- The new collaboration from the FW18 UltraBOOST Collective

Paris-based  Études  ‘studio’  was  founded  in  2012  as  a  way  of  exploring  and  advancing  global  experiences  of  visual  culture.  Their  work  traverses  mediums,  but  is  most  memorably  conveyed  through  contemporary-minded  fashion  collections.  Their  UltraBOOST  design  slots  seamlessly  into  their  aesthetic:  a  deceptively  refined,  uncaged  shoe  rendered  in  shades  of  bright  blue  and  deep  black. 

The  blue  uppers  not  only  call  to  mind  an  iconic  adidas  colorway  but  also  a  shade  that  Études  frequently  uses  to  champion  a  strong,  open  and  progressive  Europe.  The  color,  pared-back  silhouette,  and  embroidered  stars  immediately  catch  the  eye.  Accompanying  the  Études  UltraBOOST  is  a  pack-away  rain  cape.  Echoing  the  subtle  details  of  its  partner  shoe,  the  cape  is  sleek  and  functional,  with  oversized  tonal  co-branding  that  runs  the  length  of  the  cape’s  reverse.

Both the adidas Consortium Ultraboost Uncaged x Études & the adidas Consortium x Études Rain Cape will launch on Saturday the 15th of September at limitEDitions Barcelona .

adidas Consortium x Bodega
01 . 09 . 18

adidas Consortium and Boston-based sneaker destination Bodega team up for a distinctive take on two key 2018 silhouettes.

For their FW18 collaboration with adidas Consortium, the team behind Boston’s renowned Bodega apply their combined sneakerhead instincts to two acclaimed silhouettes: the recently launched, terrace-culture inspired Kamanda, and another new style for 2018, the Sobakov. Applying the same ‘hidden in plain sight’ approach that led to the creation of their convenience-store shopfront, each pair incorporates a host of unusual details and cultural references without ever detracting from their distinctive silhouettes.

adidas Consortium x Bodega launches 1st September at limitEDitions Barcelona.

Like its spiritual predecessor the Kamanda, the soccer-inspired Sobakov features a heavily-treaded cupsole, crafted here from translucent rubber. The wraparound reflective three-stripes and red/black accenting call to mind a golden age of adidas soccer boots, namely the Precision version of the adidas Predator. Bodega brings soccer styling into the lifestyle arena through the use of buttery, weathered ‘bone’ suede: a design choice that encapsulates the pack's premium take on heritage details.

The Bodega iteration of the Kamanda sees it's update in a fusion of premium suede and techy textiles, featuring a subtle Bodega graphic print. The eye-catching cupsole here is moulded from translucent rubber for even more impact.

adidas and NEIGHBORHOOD first started working together in 2005, almost two decades after Neighborhood’s founder, Shinsuke Takizawa, was introduced to the brand. Inevitably, the very first partnership saw Takizawa creating his own version of the adidas Superstar shoes worn by the group, and the collaborations have grown and evolved ever since. Takizawa spent his formative years around Japanese motorcycle team and his counterculture/subculture instincts are at the heart of NEIGHBORHOOD. Each new collaboration sees Takizawa and adidas mining sportswear’s rich countercultural and tribal associations to create something both iconic and completely new.


The AW18 capsule collection stays true to these ideals: inspired by a distinctly Japanese take on the classic sportswear of football terrace culture and the re-appropriated military garb of nomadic motorcycle gangs, with each piece featuring new graphics by Los Angeles-based artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt. A mainstay of the transgressive L.A. punk scene, DeWitt embodies the countercultural spirit of adidas x NEIGHBORHOOD: from appearing in drag on the CD artwork of Nirvana’s In Utero to designing Kanye West’s provocative 2016 tour merchandise. His work for the FW18 adidas x NEIGHBORHOOD capsule features the latter brand’s iconic ‘Old English’ font and a new ‘target’ graphic that invokes the ‘Mod’ culture that evolved into terrace culture. The words ‘Survive’ and ‘Under Attack’ evoke the rebel spirit of the terraces.

Along with DeWitt’s graphics, military-style runs throughout the collection. In the apparel offering, the centrepiece is an extended-length M65 field jacket, complete with a detachable Primaloft-padded inner vest. The NBHD Old English font can be seen on each of the four front pockets, while DeWitt’s target designs appear on both the left chest and above the zipped back pocket. Meanwhile, each of the three footwear styles – the Kamanda, Stan Smith and I-5923 – are updated takes on terrace favourites from over the years, available in military-inspired olive colourways. This buttery nubuck version of the Kamanda features the iconic, adidas Samba-inspired sole along with new asymmetric lacing, debossed NEIGHBORHOOD lettering and DeWitt’s tonal graphics. Furthermore, matching track tops and pants embroidered with the signature graphics and long and short-sleeved tees that evoke the training tops of football teams in the 70s and 80s round out the collection. Their retro styling is given a new lease of life through bold graphic treatments.

adidas x NEIGHBORHOOD AW18 will launch at limitEDitions Barcelona on September 1st.

adidas Originals Futurepacer black
01 . 09 . 18

Inspired by the revolutionary adidas Micropacer of 1984, the aptly dubbed Futurepacer takes influence from the past but steps into the future. Featuring a stealthy ‘Triple Black‘ colourway, minimally complemented by green trim along the heel and blue trim on the inner tongue. Below sits full-length Boost cushioning in black.
The heel tab and EVA plugs give this futuristic sneaker an aesthetic that sort of resembles the legendary NMD.
