Presenting a trio of iconic 3-stripes silhouettes in a unique premium construction, adidas Originals in collaboration with Sneakers ER and Charles F. Stead has created the “Originals Crafted” pack, transforming the Campus, Gazelle and Forum Hi silhouettes for a completely new iteration for FW17.
Working with the revered English suede and leather tannery Charles F. Stead & Company founded in 1895, adidas Originals has created each classic model in an elevated materialisation complete with Sneakers ER cleaning kit.
First up, the Campus receives a plush suede construction in Forest Green, with subtle gold foil details on the heel and lateral side. This is finished with a semi-translucent midsole and outsole, giving an understated touch of luxury to a casual classic.
Next, the Gazelle assumes a deconstructed one-piece approach in premium suede, rendered in a rich Navy Blue with gold foil details. A contrast white tongue and laces complete the picture, placed atop a classic white midsole.
Finally, the high-top Forum Hi basketball model is pushed to its most luxurious reaches, featuring a premium suede upper in grey, with a unique adapted ankle strap and subtle high-end touches. The shoe’s Bounce midsole is then wrapped in a clean white
leather, giving an artisanal touch to the shoe’s bold design.
The collection, released on November 22nd at online and instore at adidas and adidas Consortium accounts, is a celebration of the enduring appeal of three iconic adidas Originals silhouettes, created from materials that truly benefit their status.
