Italian retailer Sneakers76 have taken to the adidas EQT Guidance 93 to pay tribute to their hometown, Taranto, which is on the country’s South Coast. According to Greek mythology Taras, son of Poseidon, was shipwrecked off the coast, rescued by a dolphin and went on to found the city.
The soft suede upper takes aquatic cues from Toranto’s natural harbour, while the grey and brown reflect the stone and wood of the city’s iconic bridge. The sneakers come complete with a cleaning pack, made by Jason Markk, enclosed in a special history book box.
The Sneakers76 x adidas EQT Guidance 93 ‘The Bridge of Two Seas’ will be available in store on September 17, the remaining pairs will be available online shortly after.
