To start November, END is working with adidas Consortium to deliver the Sahara Pack. Themed after the great African desert that stretches from the Atlantic to the Red Sea, adidas has created editions of the NMD C1 Chukka and ZX 700 Boat.
END has revived the ZX 700 Boot for the pack, which has not been seen over the past five years. END’s take on the sneaker is dressed in desert-camouflage beige over is leather and rough suede construction, which “mimics the diverse surfaces found in arid landscapes”.
The second half of the collection is a fresh take on the NMD C1 Chukka, which unlike previous releases of the sneaker is fitted with a zipper on the heel. Here is how END describes the sneaker…
The NMD’s deep-green colour, gum sole and geometric, honeycombed upper are references to cacti, one of the few plants capable of growing and thriving in such environments.
END tags both sneaker with its logo on the tongue, which also features Consortium’s signature eyelet. The kicks will be available on the 5th of November through END. You should also be able to find the sneaker at other adidas Consortium dealers.
