Here is a closer look at the Retrograde Resistance (LXXXIV) 84-Lab Collection from Kazuki Karachi and adidas Originals. The longtime adidas collaborator from fragment design has crafted a collection of shoes inspired by hunting, polo, football and horse-riding.
One of the more interesting pieces from the collection is the ZX Riding Boot, which is built on a ZX sole with a brown leather ridding style upper with buck strap.
The Campus 80s Breathe is also a key style from the collection with mesh heavy uppers that are supported with pigskin nubuck. The style follows on the popular Superstar Breathe. The kicks come in a choice of dark navy or tech grey.
For the ZXZ ADV, Kazuki takes inspiration from the ZX 500 featuring five different materials: enamel leather, full grain leader, mesh, suede and terry cloth. You have the option of tech grey or dark navy.
This season, adidas Originals is reissuing the National Tennis and Kazuki has included the sneaker in the collection too. Two colorways have been produced, both resting on brick red soles pair a rich leather and canvas on the upper. The color choices include dark navy/mustang brown or medium khaki/mustang brown.
Kazuki is also working with the newly reissued Torsion Allegra, giving the early 90s trainer a premium black patent leather upper.
