adidas Take Inspiration From Germany's Elite Police Unit
It’s that time of year again: slim, minimal sneakers are out and bulky, terrain-trouncing footwear is in. Accordingly, adidas have drawn inspiration from Germany’s elite tactical police unit, GSG 9, and delivered the latter with a twist.
The higher of the two silhouettes, the AF 1.3 PK, looks like fashion’s finest minds were tasked with redesigning a storm trooper boot. Its sole flares out for stability and suede heel counters cup the foot. The AF 1.4 PK offers contrast with a lower profile and dark knit more fitted for casual military-style enthusiasts.
The AF 1.3 and AF 1.4 will be available on October 19 from select adidas accounts.
