With the legendary Stan Smith shoe back on rotation, and following Consortium’s initial original colourway release pack, adidas has teamed up with five designers – all hailing from Asia – to give their unique update to the iconic silhouette.
Hong Kong’s CLOT is made up of childhood friends Kevin Poon and Edison Chen, whose brand encompasses music, fashion, design and PR services. Their streetwear designs have garnered them solid success, not to mention a number of collaborations with high-profile brands over the years.
For Stan Smith CLOT, Poon approached the shoe with the utmost respect by not straying too far from its clean and timeless silhouette. The black nubuck upper contrasts against metallic gold accents on the heel tab, tongue and ‘CLOT’ callout on the heel patch, giving it a sophisticated and eye-catching finish. Soft leather has been used to line the shoe, while the footbed features grip material in a repeated CLOT motif, preventing slippage for the wearer.
The adidas Consortium x CLOT Stan Smith is the first of the Consortium Stan Smith Collaboration Pack shoes to be released this coming Saturday, February 15th at 12pm noon EST – both in-store and online @ PackerShoes.com.
Retail is $180 USD.
