Here’s a quick view of my mi adidas Tubular Runner “Frost Mint Crystal”. It took over a month to finally receive which is more than what’s stated at In a kind gesture though, adidas actually returned the shipping fees. Kudos to adi for that. I kept the shoe simple with two hues; Frost Mint and Black. It goes alongside my ‘Crystal’ custom series inspired by the Nike Dunk Sea Crystal and Ice Green. For now, here are two photos until I have time to create more and do my review on this mi adidas…

Release INFO: adidas x Solebox Consortium Guidance 93


Solebox is one of those very rare shoe collaborators that disappoint. Only disappointment I have is the struggle of getting any one of their releases. This, will most likely be another one of those days. Hikmet once again teamed up with adidas on a pair of Guidance 93. A model that was brought back from the adi vault this year. The make-up is very simple and tells the story of the colorway inspired by the Berlin city flag; similar to their ‘Then and Now’ pack from 2010. The silhouette comes in black, tonal grey suede and has hints of red through out the shoe. Simple, clean and a beauty…

Coming Soon: adidas Originals ZX 420 ‘Quotoole’


Anyone that loves shoes will appreciate this story. A tale where a dream became a reality for two guys doing a personal project (adidas sneaker book) for the love it. That love gave them a chance to do what you see here. The ‘Quotoole’.  A collaboration between a passionate vintage adidas collector named Quote and illustrator Peter O’Toole. Their idea was to take a zx 420, the adidas Denver’s colorway, which is Quotes favorite adi pair, and reintroduce the CW you see above. What you get is a vintage feel that’s dressed in classic suede and mesh…

Release INFO: adidas x Packer Shoes Shoes EQT Support 93 “SL80″


There’s no shortage of adidas collaborations this year. Here we have Packer Shoes with their effort on the retro adidas Originals EQT Support. The vibrate colorway tells a simple story. It’s based off the OG adidas SL80 CW, but with some slight changes; one change I honestly could have done with out. In any case, if you take a look at the original SL80, you can see where the idea stems from. Some of the changes included come from an abundance of red and a lighter blue colored vamp. Unlike the SL80 and its nylon toe box, Packer decided to add a perforated one. An accent that adds a more modern look and keeps up with current trends. It also comes dressed in beautiful lush navy suede seen through out the shoes upper. This looks absolutely fantastic in the photos and made me want to zoom in to make sure it wasn’t my eyes playing tricks on me. Another change was adding a nylon tongue over the rubber one on the SL80. Again, another accent that makes the OG make-up look a bit more ‘today’…
