Florida-based sneaker retailer, Shoe Gallery, joins forces with adidas to reinterpret its classic Climacool 1 silhouette to cap off the Consortium World Tour.
Labeled “Flight 305”, the story begins on Ocean Drive, the long road which runs along the South Beach waterfront, lined with the city’s now iconic art deco buildings. Painted in a variety of pastel shades, by day, these buildings change by nightfall – under the illumination of multicoloured neon signs – colours begin to warp and blend into one another.
These buildings serve as the inspiration behind the silhouette’s dynamic aesthetic, as it flaunts a stealthy black makeover, but in light, and with movement, the shoes’ striking effect is revealed. Beneath the dark outer mesh lies a XENO film membrane that mimics the multi coloured shimmer of snakeskin.
Shoe Gallery has also teamed up with DroneNerds and Miami-based Grammy Nominee producer, Cool on this model. The execution is a playful nod towards unmanned flying vehicles with stealthy black bodies accented by the shimmer of their propellers. Shoe Gallery envisions such drones as the future of footwear delivery.
The Shoe Gallery x adidas Consortium Climacool 1 Flight 305 will drop in store only on the 7th of January 2017 for the retail price of R2199.00
