END. X ADIDAS SUPERTURF ADVENTURE “IBEX”27 September 2022
END. and adidas reunite with the Superturf Adventure "Ibex", borrowing inspiration from the ruggedness of the Ibex goat.
END. and adidas follow on from their “Ceramic Craze” collection with “Ibex”, bringing the Superturf Adventure sneaker under the spotlight this time. The collection’s name is derived from the namesake wild goats native to Europe, Asia and North-eastern Africa — a species renowned for its near-gravity-defying grip and ability to thrive in extreme terrain.
Channeling that, END. and adidas look to the Superturf Adventure sneaker — a natural choice given the silhouette’s rugged, outdoor-focused construction — with a makeover that’s reflective of the Ibex goat and the landscapes it inhabits. The colourway used is a nod to the mountainous habitats native to the Ibex, with an earthy palette of dusty olive, pastel parchment and autumn leaf used.
The sneaker’s construction matches the hardy nature of the Ibex goat; the uppers are built using CORDURA® to ensure extreme durability and water repellence, then overlaid with hairy suede to reference the animal’s hide. The TRAXION outsole of the sneaker is a direct nod to the Ibex’s stability on difficult terrain, with lugs designed for optimum grip and a smooth release surface to prevent mud build up. ADIPRENE cushioning features at the midsole for comfort and support, too, with a speckled effect to further the sneaker’s natural appearance. The outdoor-focused approach continues elsewhere, with reflective accents throughout for increased visibility and hiking-inspired laces. An additional pull tab features at the sneaker’s tongues, which unzips to reveal the collaboration’s bespoke co-branding: a depiction of an Ibex scaling an adidas logo with END.’s font branding underneath.
