UPDATE: If you missed your chance to snag the latest Consortium drops directly from the sources then all hope is not lost. The Undefeated x colette x adidas Consortium Exchange will be available around the world from Consortium stockists on January 28th. Get a good look at 'em, think about it.
The adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange project has begun. The first of this year’s collaborative partnerships features two heavy hitters from opposite ends of the planet, Los Angele’s Undefeated and Paris’ colette. With two retailers that are so steeped in sneaker folklore, it’s no surprise that the resulting EQT Support and Campus 80s turned out such a treat.
The Parisian boutique's signature blue hugs the heel of the Campus, while the textured white leather bumps the silhouette up a notch. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the EQT Support is made up of black and dark blue, but once again has a few little hits of that bright blue. The embossed Three Stripe lacing system on the EQT reminds us of the big-time lineup, while the shared branding is scattered about the Campus 80s.
