The END. x Bodega Pack examines adidas’ rich history while simultaneously questioning the future of athletic footwear. Vintage sneaker connoisseurs will be thrilled by the revival of the Haven - a 1970s running classic - which here receives luxurious make over in a soft suede. Another model making a big impression this year is the brand new Iniki Runner, which deliberately toys with the juxtaposition of a classic aesthetic with modern elements such as BOOST™ sole and an ultra-contemporary silhouette.
adidas and the Yoshida Company began life as small, family-run businesses. adidas made sportswear, Yoshida made bags and over the latter half of the 20th century both became giants in their respective fields. Now experts in our industries, together we present a small collection of high quality footwear and bags. It is east meets west; a truly special exchange of ideas.
Rather than simply altering materials or colorways, Avenue has demonstrated a bold ethos in its treatment of the EQT Support. By toying with traditions and allowing different cultures to clash, Avenue has enlivened the model with a fresh approach. The retailer selected aniline leather - often used to upholster luxury furniture - for the model’s outer. Soft and sleek when left smooth, it is complemented with embroideries woven directly into the leather, heavily reminiscent of patterns often featured in Scandinavian fabric design.
