2016 was an incredible year for adidas Consortium. The premium Three Stripes footwear program saw a cavalcade of coveted collaborations with some of the most respected retailers around the globe. Rounding out the year, Miami's Shoe Gallery managed to sneak in a stealthy Climacool 1 colab in the final days of December. Inspired by the bright neon lights that adorn South Beach's Ocean Drive, this seemingly blacked-out make-up comes alive under direct light, with an iridescent XENO membrane shimmering with multicolour brilliance beneath the mesh upper. The shoe has been design in conjunction with Miami-based Grammy nominated producer Cool and the covert crew at DroneNerds, with the blackout upper a sly nod to their stealth expertise.
The Shoe Gallery x adidas Consortium Climacool 1 'Flight 305' was an instant sell-out when it dropped at Shoe Gallery but thankfully Three Stripe fiends will have another chance to cop these iridescent beauties when they land at select adidas stockists globally on January 7, including Overkill.
