For SS19, adidas Consortium brings back a 90s running icon in all its original glory, the adidas LXCON.
The faithful reproduction of the 1996 release harnesses the creativity, craftsmanship and functionality that first made the shoe so coveted and emblematic of a game-changing decade for sneaker design.
The release is also part of a number of SS19 Consortium releases that celebrate the Torsion system designed in 1988 by Jacques Chassaing, creator of the ZX running shoe series.
It comes with iconic splashes of Grape Purple that also graced the original iteration – across the tongue, the collar and various over/underlays. The oversized Three Stripes are an unapologetic celebration of an era when the logo was king, and a pop of Green on the undersole further evokes the colors seen across adidas lines such as EQT during the ’90s. The considered blend of leathers and textiles also approximates the performance aspirations of the times, albeit updated with the latest contemporary adidas production standards. Leather overlays sit above mesh underlays, while a tube construction provides added stability on the uppers.
