adidas Consortium and Aberdeen-based retailer Hanon have unveiled their latest collaboration re-working the adidas New York as the silhouette to create a new interpretation and colourway which references the ever-changing Scottish skies.
Dubbed the “Dark Storm” the shoe’s color scheme alludes to the broken skies as dramatic rain clouds quickly sweeping in from across the Atlantic ocean. These transitioning conditions are stylishly recreated in a bespoke jacquard woven pattern with a light-to-dark fade effect which is also applied to the midsole’s signature Dellinger webbing.
Suede overlays give a premium look and feel to the exterior while the soft leather interior and a central section of the sole provide optimistic ashes of Originals Blue – a homage to the early New York and a reminder that clear skies could be just moments away.
The Hanon New York comes with three sets of a laces – a thoughtful inclusion allowing the wearer to colour-match with the weather conditions. Collaborative branding is visibly presented throughout the shoe, detailed on the side stripes, embossed on the leather tongue loops and screened to each back tab. The climate inspired silhouette even includes embossed coordinates of the city printed on the tongue reverse.
