Inspired by Tokyo, adidas Consortium and Mita join forces for the 'Cages and Coordinates' sneaker pack - Launching at END. on July 14th.
Teaming up for the first time since 2016, adidas Consortium and Tokyo-based Mita return for the 'Cages and Coordinates' sneaker pack.
The NMD TS1 PKI is an evolved take on one of adidas’ most contemporary styles. Featuring primeknit uppers, BOOST soles and a pull tab lacing system/heel tab combination, the sneakers are perfectly suited to the hustle and bustle of contemporary Tokyo. The uppers also feature a tonal mesh pattern that calls to mind the wire cages famously used to display each footwear style sold within Mita.
The Mita iteration of the Stan Smith arrives in a black and white colourway, rendered in premium leather uppers with a contrast sole. A host of blacked-out tonal additions, including heel tabs and metal side-zips, are offset by white text that runs downs the entire length of the tongue and across the heel. For the uninitiated, the text might look like an arbitrary sequence of numbers and letters – in actuality, they are the geographic coordinates for both the Mita store in Tokyo and the adidas headquarters in Germany.
Together, they exemplify the Consortium mantra at the heart of this and many other collaborations: “The Respect is Mutual.”
The adidas Consortium x Mita 'Cages and Coordinates' pack is now on END. Launches.
