U.K. retailer END is the latest store to collaborate with Adidas Consortium, and it has a decadent desert-inspired collection set to release in November.
For the mash-up, END. has chosen to rework two much-loved adidas silhouettes — the ZX 700 Boat and NMD Chukka — mentioning inspiration from the far-flung, barren terrains of Saharan Africa. According to the store, “both the execution and the materials draw their aesthetic from the 3.5 million square miles of undulating sand dunes that sprawl across much of the African continent.”
The NMD has been dressed in a deep olive hue as a reference to cacti and features a honeycomb patterned upper and white Boost sole, while the ZX 700 comes in differing shades of beige and tan, and features both leather and suede in homage to the myriad types of desert surfaces.
The adidas Consortium x END - NMD & ZX Boat will release at Shelflife on the 12th of November 2016 via in store raffle only - price TBC.
Please note the JHB release will only be from 2pm on the 12th of November 2016.
