Earlier in the year, Stussy reprised their collaborative relationship with , the imprint going on to help bring back the Zoom Spiridon and even pay homage to the more obscure Kukini. And now, according to recent leaks, the legendary streetwear label is offering up yet another release though atop the more universally popular Air Force 1. While a new shape for this season, the construction is close to identical to that of their Fossil-colored Spiridon. A hemp fabrication seems to dress the entirety of the overlaid panels, bearing a rough texture that is also a perfect match in shade. Swooshes, instead of dyed black like the aforementioned, are now made tonal as they embroider along the profile with a deep separation down the middle. Elsewhere, Sail toolings are added to complement the above, branded patches are provided the typical STUSSY signature, and the toe box is marked with what looks to be an ornate S.
The debuts at retailers today as it's the latest iteration of the silhouette this summer. As part of the Swoosh's experimental N.354 line, the model is punctuated by its exposed Zoom Air pods in the forefoot and a TPU plate running the length of the midsole. Other design details such as the logo treatment, targeted perforation for breathability, and exposed stitching for support solidify this innovative silhouette.
While much of adidas' attention throughout 2020 has been given to the , the German sportswear behemoth has outfitted other silhouettes in its Originals lineup with impressive ensembles. The latest model to don a noteworthy outfit is the Stan Smith, which has just launched in alternate color schemes and built with Italian crocodile leather. Akin to its inaugural arrangement, this iteration of the tennis classic is mostly clad in "Footwear White". Branding on the tongue and heel overlays are the only two components that deviate from he tonal aesthetic, as traditionally, but right shoes indulge in a classic green, while their left counterparts boast a rich blue across these areas. Furthermore, trefoil-accompanied "STAN SMITH" text is replaced with the 73-year-old tennis icon's signature. Underfoot, sole units don't partake in any luxurious reptilian detailing or mismatched palette. Instead, they sport a slightly-yellowed finish for vintage-appeal. Packing for this adidas Originals release are equally impressive: the box features metallic gold branding and includes additional laces with shimmering gold tips.
Amid delays of its next lifestyle footwear collaboration with , adidas is partnering with 3M on a Nite Jogger duo. Relaunched April 2019 as a shoe for "night time creators," the Nite Jogger keeps true to not only its name, but also its debut in the late '70s through reflective accents across the forefoot, midfoot and heel. Upping the high-visibility ante, however, are 3M™ Scotchlite™ overlays; the reflective detail covers every inch of both pairs' uppers, though it delivers more visual contrast on the "Hi-Res Red" Nite Jogger. Nevertheless, "Metal Grey" counterparts boast enlarged "3M" branding on their medial sides, as well as tonal Boost cushioning underfoot, just like it's louder duo-mate. "Core Black" subdues both options' extra-flashy iterations around the collar and throughout the outsole.
