Today we present OTH’s first collaborative project with adidas Original Consortium, a Tubular Moc Runner inspired by the Voyageurs of French Canadian heritage.
The Voyageurs, French Canadian tradesmen of the 18th and early 19th centuries, earned their title from endless travels on foot and canoe between far-flung Native American communities and trading posts. They adopted many style cues from their indigenous counterparts and, in turn, OTH has integrated these traditional elements in their adidas shoe.
The aesthetic inspiration came naturally for this collaboration seeing as German roots also run deep within Voyageur history, and this history could provide a space where both brands intersect. The look of the shoe essentially embodies the essence of a modern-day Voyageur with its many layers and fabrics such as smooth premium black leather for the toe box, wool uppers, classic moccasin stitching, two sets of laces and a split tongue. A frozen lake is printed on the insole to recall the many treacherous lake crossings during winter expeditions. A lake-blue is also featured on the outsole.
The very detailed and thoughtful adidas Consortium x OTH Tubular Moc Runner is the result of a true collaboration with tremendous team effort from both parties.
Look for the OTH x adidas Consortium Tubular Moc Runner to launch in-store this Saturday – April 25 at 12pm noon at Packer Shoes.
Remaining stock from in-store will be made available for sale online at 8pm if available.
Retail is set at $140 USD.
