Size? are chasing up their last adidas exclusive with a deep cut from the Three Stripe catalogue – the Athen. Drawing from the spirit of the Olympic Games’ home, Size? note that the shoe has had a colourful past. After changing its name from Jaguar to the Athen in the late 60s the shoe has been through multiple alterations. It’s been repositioned for different markets and its sole has been changed enough to put a cobbler’s children through school. Nothing good ever came easy though, and you’ll agree the final result is worth it.
The Athen Size? will be delivering comes in suede and leather coloured blue and white for the city of Athens. Wrinkled leather adds texture on the tongue and the midsole is appropriately retro in gum.
Size will be hosting an event for the October 21 launch of the shoe. Info on the event can be found here.
