Swedish retailer Sneakersnstuff has taken on adidas’ ZX 700 for the women’s Consortium collection and given it a directional fashion twist. The duo behind SNS was inspired by classic designer handbags where luxurious materials and exotic animal textures are used with aplomb.
Playing with textures, the upper is a mix of black suede and black animal embossed on leather. Each pair is unique with varying sizes of animal print, making for a head-turning piece of footwear. What’s extra special is the execution of the 3-Stripes on the side medial which is not stitched, but pleated – a considered detail that gives the sneaker a softer, feminine look.
The predominately black colour-way is counteracted by off-white on the leather ghillie piece and outsole, and keeping it luxe is a soft leather sockliner featuring the SNS logo. The logo is used again, debossed on the shoe’s heel tab, while the other tab features a debossed Trefoil.
