With their Sneaker Exchange program, adidas surely provided a unique platform for some of the most interesting projects in 2017. For the last edition in 2017, A Ma Maniére from Atlanta and Taipeh’s Invincible bridge the geographical distance that seperates the two stores to team up on two downright amazing silhouettes. Showcasing their shared preference for vanguard designs and refined finishes, the US- and Taiwan-based boutiques present an outstanding cross-cultural collaboration.
The UltraBOOST gets uncaged to place some subtle fleecy merino well Three Stripes on the sidewalls, kept in tone with the shoes triple white upper. Instead of the usual PK tongue section, the two stores went for a soft premium leather treatment with dual-branded labels.
Serving as a color contrast, the NMD_R1 appears with an all-black Primeknit Upper that also features lateral merino wool Three Stripe logos. Inky premium leather patches decorate the tongue label, eyelets and heel patch, as the exquisite upper construction is set atop a white midsole.
