RANSOM X ADIDAS - THE NEVER ENDING PATH
Forged as an alliance between adidas Originals and the Canadian retail conglomerate known as Ransom, the Never Ending Path is a footwear collection born and bred for the northern outdoors. With acres of sleek suede and a ruggedly handsome exterior, the collection comprises five all-new models which are a definite diversion from traditional sportswear - there's no 3 Stripes on these midnight ramblers! Classic Americana workwear has been huge in Japan for years and this year saw it brought home to its birthplace for mass consumption at a junior level. With the original sneaker generation growing up and out of their training wheels, projects like this one found a very welcome audience, desperate for a fresh update of staple commodities.
