adidas x PORTER Join Forces for A Sneaker and Luggage Collaboration

Featuring Porter's distinctive TANKER textile

Partnering once more for SS18 adidas Originals and iconic Japanese luggage purveyor, PORTER, present a brand new collection of premium accessories and footwear.

Each titan's in their respective fields, the collection riffs on some of PORTER's best-loved luggage styles and the iconic adidas Campus sneaker; uniting trademark elements of their respective brands and recontextualizing their identities in exciting new modes.

As might be expected from a luggage collaboration, core to the collection are two standard PORTER bag designs – the 3Way Brief Case and the 2Way Boston Bag. Each bag presents classic PORTER design and material elements with subtle design adjustments by adidas Originals.

A perennial PORTER design originally inspired by the iconic MA-1 flight jacket, the 3Way Brief Case is constructed from PORTER’s iconic nylon padding textile and features multiple interior and exterior pockets, as well as interior pen and document holders. As its name suggests, removable exterior straps allow the 3Way Brief Case to be worn as a briefcase, shoulder bag or backpack, while a combination of zip on the main room and Velcro + snap button closures on the front pocket ensure belongings are safe and secure.

The collaborative edition also features an interior laptop compartment, while the bag’s regular zipper tape is switched out for an exclusive version featuring the adidas 3-stripes, and PORTER’s signature orange lining is redecorated in adidas’ signature blue colourway. Second up, the 2Way Boston Bag features a similar approach in terms of design and construction, made from nylon padded fabric with heavy-duty handles and a removable/adjustable shoulder strap. Interior pockets allow for item storage, finished with adidas Blue lining and contrast 3-stripes zipper tape.

Essential to any adidas Originals collaboration, the collection is rounded off with a special take on the timeless Campus silhouette. True to the spirit of the release, the Campus features a premium nubuck construction across the quarter, countered with a toebox and tongue in PORTER’s best selling signature “TANKER” textile. The shoe is offered in PORTER’s trademark black/orange colour palette with bold orange serrated 3-stripes marks, finished with collaborative branding on the lateral side, placed atop a classic black rubber sole.

Collectively, adidas Originals by PORTER presents the spirit of collaboration in its most authentic form; the coming together of two distinct labels, combining their proudest aspects to create a new expression of classic designs.

The adidas Originals x PORTER collection will launch at END. on May 3rd. The Campus sneaker is now available for registration on END. Launches.
