adidas Skateboarding x Alltimers

adidas and Alltimers have collaborated for the third time, on this occasion with a capsule collection centered on a rework of the iconic Gazelle Super shoe and plenty of hairy suede.

They have stripped the Gazelle Super right back, focusing on the simple design of the silhouette and dressing them in a shaggy, muddy-orange hue suede. They stripped the three-stripes from the side and instead just kept the classic adidas heel logo and a debossed Alltimers cocktail tongue logo. The supporting clothing drop is also routed in herritage sportswear. High impact logo mashup on the T-Shirt and the same hairy vibes on a (matching) hoody and rich navy zip jacket. Custom navy chino's too, it's a svelte little release but the cuts are fine and the dialled down branding balances the dialled up textures.

Alltimers explained their headspace working on the collection; “You know the old saying; martini’s are like stripes – two isn’t enough, and four is too many. For our third collaboration with adidas we’ve stripped the shoe down to it’s essentials – spruced it up with some very decent materials and built a their third collection around it. A more refined, grown up look, because we kept getting turned away from nice restaurants with the hockey jerseys and sweatpants on”

The adidas Skateboarding x Alltimers collection goes on sale Saturday 20th October.
