adidas Consortium x BAIT

August 29, 2017

adidas Consortium and US retailer BAIT present two futuristic EQT Support models. Inspired by the relationship between humans and technology, and exploring the convergence of man and machine, the result is a clean, clinical pack with an assortment of smart details.

Since the opening of its first store in 2011, BAIT has made a big impact and grown quickly. There are currently eight BAIT stores stretching up the West Coast from Southern California to Seattle, Washington, Colorado, and next up Hawaii.


 
BAIT’s decision to link the design of its pack to state-of-the-art research and development feels highly apt. While in 2017, EQT – original as well as updated - continues to enjoy a renaissance, the models in this range were originally created for performance. They were created during an era when adidas’ R&D obsessed over striking patterns and how best to equip every style of runner with suitable footwear. R&D runs to the very epicenter of the EQT’s DNA – whether it’d be the heritage styles or the next gen models.
 
The BAIT R&D pack pushes the EQT project further forward than ever before. It combines BAIT’s enthusiasm for futurism with recent technological advancement made by adidas. Neither Primeknit uppers nor BOOSTTM soles were available in the early nineties, when adidas first embarked on the EQT range, but subsequent developments allow to continue, taking classic models to new places.
 


There are two standout features on both of these EQT Supports by BAIT. One is the highly distinct mesh optimized cage construction, which enhances the shoes’ stability while keeping the upper flexible and the lacing system quick to use. The other is not immediately apparent. It is the skeletal pattern, which reflects in one model and glows in the dark on the other. Low-key flare that is subtle in the day, but makes them total show- stoppers by night.
 
Smart execution, simple, monochromatic colors, modern technology - put to great use by BAIT on their EQT pack.

INVINCIBLE suggested using this vintage collector’s classic as a basis for inspiration. From the NMD R1’s color and materials, to smaller design motifs, subtle references are made to the all-time favorite.

Prophere introduces an unexpected silhouette that is both disruptive in design and innovative in construction. The adidas Originals by UNDFTD model features a primeknit upper with a raised tiger camo print, offset by 90’s inspired bold TPU stripes prominently integrated into the lace system. adidas Originals and UNDFTD branding is purposely placed on the iconic Consortium tongue tab and tongue strap drawing further attention to the aggressively bold midsole, a signature detail of the new silho

The UltraBOOST LUX sees the model thoroughly refined in a premium execution. The Primeknit upper is understated and soft, while leather upholstery creates a luxurious and comfortable interior. Its synthetic suede overlays and dark sand-colored cage provide harmonious accents and combine with the light upper to create a subtle sneaker, filled with low-key detailing.
