We were shocked by the terrible news that came out of Boston and have pushed back the launch of the Consortium Boston Super OG pack to May 18th 2013. Our hearts and prayers go out to the runners, spectators and everyone affected by the terrible events that took place during the Boston Marathon.
The Consortium Boston OG pack has been developed in honor of the Boston Marathon, the world’s oldest annual road racing event. Following the recent cowardly act and tragedy all Consortium accounts are invited to donate to the ONE FUND BOSTON. This donation will be used to assist the families of the victims who were killed and the victims who were most seriously affected as a result of the tragic events during the Boston Marathon.
Celebrating the world’s oldest annual running event, the Boston Marathon, adidas Consortium has taken one of its iconic running models to release in two special colorways. The Boston Super, which was originally created in 1984 to celebrate the famous marathon, draws inspiration from classic adidas sneakers such as the Phantom and the Centaur.
Here fans are presented with a decidedly retro silhouette in a patriotic OG colorway, as well as another that pays homage to the Boston Athletic Association, which organizes the Boston Marathon every year. A combination of mesh, suede and leather materials compose the upper on the shoe.
The adidas Consortium Boston Super OG Pack releases April 27th (4.27.13) both in-store and online @ Packer Shoes.
Originally released 20 years ago, the Torsion Allegra makes a return in the form of a adidas Consortium Solebox collaboration and the inline EQT model. Employing the Berlin-based retailer’s oft-used neon green hue to dress the shoe’s mesh inlay and lining, the resulting colorway provides a distinctive look to the traditional archival silhouette. The design is capped off with a red Consortium fabric loop and embossed Solebox branding across the heel of the right shoe. Finally, the built-in Torsion bar system, relegated almost as an afterthought, gives the shoe its name while providing a stable ride.
Both editions of the Torsion Allegra will be available in-store tomorrow (2.02.13) @ 12pm. Retail for both will be $135. Purchases will be limited to one pair per customer.
Any remaining stock will be available for purchase online @ PackerShoes.com the following Monday (2.04.13) @ 12pm.
Paying tribute to their hometown of Aberdeen (The Granite City), the Hanon x adidas Consortium Centaur displays a premium blend of suede, mesh and nubuck. The grey upper of the Centaur depicts the seasonal change of Aberdeen’s granite landscape. At the rear of the shoe there is a dark grey suede with a heavy nap representing the gloom of winter which is offset by a dual layered silver mesh and light grey nubuck that leans towards the fairer months of the year. Additional features appear by way of red accents, granite three stripes, multi print sock liner and dual branding via debossed heel tabs and embroidered Consortium tongue pulls. The Hanon flame appears on the left shoe whilst the Adidas Trefoil is applied on the right. Each Hanon Centaur comes with silver foil footbed labels, three sets of laces – one tonal, one contrast and one with a reflective weave.
Accompanying the Hanon model, we also have 3 colors of the updated Centaur 2013. Retooled with a heat sealed no stitch upper and constructed from a breathable mesh overlay, the 2013 model also features panels of synthetic suede on top of a white midsole and a camouflage style patterned outsole.
Releasing this Saturday (2/2), all 4 Centaur models are now available for pre-order both in-store and online at PackerShoes.com.
