END is back with another collaboration and this time its with adidas Consortium. Inspired by the Sahara Desert we get a pack of two shoes. One being an adidas NMD Chukka and the other is a ZX700 Boat sneaker. This post will focus on the NMD C1 which comes in a nice and clean color way of Earth Green and Solid Green. The upper is derived from a honeycomb woven mesh with leather trims and unlike other NMD Chukkas, it has a full zipper entry on the heel. It sits atop an ultraboost sole and brings the color way full circle with a gum bottom. The shoe also comes with a total of 4 laces; Earth green, white, tonal light brown, and tonal green. All this comes packaged in a special edition box with graphics that resemble the Dunes in the Sahara Desert…

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…

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…
