Latest HUMAN MADE x adidas Colab Features the Nizza Hi and MarathonRelease: 25 November 2020
Nigo has definitely been keeping busy lately via his HUMAN MADE label. An ongoing collaborative partnership with adidas sees a new season of apparel and footwear. Between crazy clothes including an all-denim blazer and track pant suit, the shoes are a little more conventional, featuring the Nizza Hi and a modified take on the Marathon.
There will be two Nizza Hi colourways that are a fairly simple co-branding exercise. White and grey tonal options are dressed in canvas uppers and white rubber toe caps, plus midsole foxing. HUMAN MADE add a personal touch with a gum sidewall displaying repeating heart logos.
The Marathon is the more exciting model in this latest drop. Originally a long-distance running shoe (as the name suggests), there is also a historical high-cut version designed for off-roading. HUMAN MADE tap into this archival adi model and respect its heritage in hardy suede and ripstop uppers, but also advance it into 2020 via a full-length BOOST sole. Which looks like it may have come from a rugged Terrex shoe. Of the colourways on offer, the Clear Onix/St Stonewash Blue/Collegiate Burgundy option could slot right into a wintry European mountain, while the brown and tan edition is as wearable as it is collectible.
The entire HUMAN MADE x adidas collection will be available from adidas and selected boutiques from November 25.
