Stan Smith Mita

by adidas Consortium

In continuation with their ongoing partnership, Japanese retailer Mita and adidas Consortium have drawn inspiration from the surrounding streets and interiors of Mita's store locations to present the NMD TS1 PKI and Stan Smith.

The Stan Smith features a black and white colorway that has played such a part in adidas’ history is rendered here in premium leather uppers and a starkly contrasting sole. A host of blacked-out tonal additions, including heel tabs and metal side-zips, are offset by white text that runs downs the entire length of the tongue and across the heel. For the uninitiated, the text might look like an arbitrary sequence of aesthetically-pleasing numbers and letters – in actuality they are the geographic coordinates for both the Mita store in Tokyo and the adidas headquarters in Germany. Together, they exemplify the Consortium mantra at the heart of this and many other collaborations: “The Respect is Mutual”.
