SNS – Shades of White
adidas Originals has teamed up with Stockholm’s Sneakersnstuff to release premium off-white colorways for three of its popular silhouettes. The “Shades of White” pack will feature the Superstar, Tubular Runner and Stan Smith. With a little bit of eggshell and grey, Stockholm White or Stockholmsvitt as it’ know is the most common tone of white used with the city’s houses and apartments. It forms the basis from which the home is decorated and accessorised to individual tastes. As everyone plans what they’re wearing from the feet up, what better way to start than a shade of white sneakers.
The adidas Superstar is currently celebrating its 45th anniversary and the Sneakersnstuff pair comes with a hackle woven upper. It has a unique texture to it while the the lining is a premium soft leather. The inner-sole is a signature pink as featured across the three pairs with a tonal printed map of Stockholm City. It’s a clean and simple design but with enough details to set them apart as something special.
As a shoe with a clean silhouette, Sneakersnstuff have stayed true to the Stan Smith’s heritage by toning down the usual bright white to the Stockholmsvitt shade. With the uppers constructed in a soft nubuck, they certainly add a premium feel. The same nubuck graces the interior to honour the classic shoe.
As the newest shoe of the pack, the Tubular Runner gets the same “Shades of White” tonal colour which shows the shoes contours off to its best. With an upper in neoprene and welded overlays which make it a comfortable with support where needed.
The adidas Originals “Shades of White” pack by Sneakersnstuff will release within their stores and online from 25th February.
