adidas Consortium is working with a sci-fi theme to create the upcoming A//D (adidas Parallel Dimension) pack. The story behind the release involves the discovery of a fictional black-hole in outer space that reveals an alternate reality Earth. This second earth is identical to our own except that they wear their adidas a little different. The pack includes the Adistar Comp a//d and Twinstrike a//d from the early 2000s in designs that are a departure from their original looks.
As a result, their parallel iterations have been dubbed the Twinstrike a//d and Adistar Comp a//d. First up, the Twinstrike a//d presents a clear departure from the early 2000s runner’s familiar aesthetic. Climacool mesh, premium suede, glossy leathers and reflective details are combined in a striking, futuristic design, finished with a complex ergonomic lacing system for optimum fit. Accompanying the Twinstrike a//d, the Adistar Comp a//d features a similar material construction of Climacool mesh and premium suede atop the original tooling of its namesake, whilst the shoe’s lacing system is defined by webbing tape panels across the vamp and sides. The shoe’s structural 3-stripes are distinguished by a geometric chain motif, supported by a contrast molded TPU heel cap with adidas trefoil branding. Both shoes feature a wealth of details alluding to the interdimensional explorations that led to their discovery – including a number that require closer inspection to uncover. What results is a disorienting exposition of 3 stripes history, told through the eyes of a world that was exactly the same, and yet somehow, totally different.
The pack will release on the 21st of September through adidas Consortium like Cologne based The Good Will Out.
