Adidas X The Hundreds Stan Smith Vulc Black / Black / White
Adidas team up with The Hundreds on this premium collaboration. High end materials have been used throughout and no part of the shoe; from the sole, through the interior, right up to the tip of the tongue has not been thoughtfully and beautifully re-worked.
The off white vulcanised sole perfectly compliments the premium black pig skin suede upper, velvety to the touch. Black waxed cotton laces lead up to the final bespoke eyelet, cast with The Hundreds text circling around it.
The heel and the tongue are in black reflective 3M material so these points catch and reflect light. The heel's 3M is stamped with a unique metallic gold amalgamated emblem of the The Hundreds Bomb inlayed with the iconic Adidas Trefoil. Each 3M tongue has a personalised graphic portrait of The Hundreds founders, the right of Bobby Hundreds and the Left of Ben Hundreds. Quirkily their facial hair has been imperceptibly black flocked, tactile and tongue in cheek.
The Hundreds text again is emblazoned diagonally up the side of the shoe next to the classic Stan Smith perforated Adidas 3 stripes. Inside the one off graphic insole sits while the technical Adidas Sprint Skin 3 stripes run up the interior walls in gold, to help keep the suede exterior tight and shapely over time. These are finished off on the right shoe with the thought 'There's No Other Love'.
Well love has been poured in to this project by the tonne...
