Following the launch of Consortium's Stan Smith 'Materials Pack,' adidas has teamed up with five of Asia's top designers, who will each bring their own influential style to the iconic shoe.
A familiar partner for adidas, luxury streetwear label mastermind JAPAN adds their signature jet black scheme and unique texture to the Stan Smith. The upper mostly features a laser cut criss-cross pattern, while the toebox, tongue and heel-tab are finished in smooth leather. The mastermind JAPAN skull and crossbones logo can be found embossed in silver on the tongue and debossed on the heel tab. A white sole is contrasted by a thick black stitch.
The mastermind JAPAN Stan Smith will be available this Saturday, February 22 as part of the Consortium Collaboration Pack. Retailers include No.6 London, No.42 Paris, No.74 Berlin and select Consortium boutiques. A limited pre-release will take place at ISETAN Shinjuku on February 15.
