The next stop on the Consortium World Tour takes adidas to legendary Korean sneaker retailer Kasina.
Located in South Korea’s capitol city of Seoul, Kasina has been at the forefront of the country’s burgeoning streetwear and fashion scene for years now. With several collaborations with other footwear brands on their resume, it seemed almost obvious their Consortium release would be worth the wait. Taking inspiration from early 20th century shoemaking, Kasina brings a craftsman like approach to their take on the Superstar 80s.
Ultra premium tumbled leather–in a beautiful off white hue–composes the shoe’s upper. The traditional bold three stripes adidas branding is instead replaced by subtle black stitching giving the sneaker a more minimal look, while the medial side of each shoe features suede overlays reminiscent of the Yeezy Boost 350.
