For the second drop of the adidas Consortium range they have invited nine partners to fill in the canvas. This time the partners were chosen from Olympic cities around the world, from Los Angeles to Stockholm, and they now together presents the new project Your Story.
Personal memories are infused into the ZX 500 designed by photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis, who as a child was a swim team member training for the Junior Olympics.
The upper is predominately swimming pool blue in a premium suede finish, partly perforated to add texture with a brown suede heel tab to reflect Jarvis’ local pool, including the wall tiles and lane dividers. A set of laces accompany the sneakers with dip dye effect ends, inspired by the lane dividers in bright contrasting colours.
The vintage silhouette is given a modern twist with the neoprene tongue, while the white and blue midsole remain true to its sports heritage. Shaniqwa’s autograph is tucked away on the inside of the tongue’s fabric loop tag.
