New! Adidas Originals + Opening Ceremony Spring 2013
We’re psyched to see the Adidas Originals + Opening Ceremony collab that first hit for Fall/Winter 2012 get a second go around this Spring. The partnership between the two brands is still rooted in sport—for Fall it was cycling with some unforgettable bandana inspired prints, now it will be tennis and running with more in the way of catchy design. Spring delves into early 1990’s style with hyper-red, deep-sea blue and forest green, biker shorts, patchwork knits and striped shirting but on the flip, it hits the au courant with color blocking, cheetah print, slim cuts, sporty mesh lining and inset panels of nylon. Footwear this season presents another Opening Ceremony evolution of the heritage adidas collection, using cheetah-print neoprene linings in the running collection for a multilayer effect. These shoes herald the return of the classic adidas “Dellinger web” shock dispersion system, a leading footwear technology when it appeared in the 1980’s but that’s present here only as an aesthetic element. Other notable footwear styles include the introduction of the Rod Laver Vintage as a high-top unisex style, a tennis-focused reworking of the iconic Crazy 8 basketball sneaker, and a take on the classic ’90s EQT basketball sneaker as a running-inspired hiker. The first delivery, available now, encompasses the running inspired collection. In March comes the tennis related stuff. Check out some more pics after the jump.
