adidas footwear collectors may not want to miss this new collaboration (the second one, we believe) between the Germany sportswear brand and Japanese label White Mountaineering. Japanese designer Yosuke Aizawa’s White Mountaineering has given classic adidas Nite Jogger a modern spin. The adidas Originals x White Mountaineering Nite Jogger was first seen at the Paris Fashion Week in January.
“The two White Mountaineering shoes on the Nite Jogger bring considered colorway choices to the suede leather overlays and mesh and textile underlays that make up the shoe’s uppers. In keeping with the Nite Jogger’s roots, many elements of the design are also constructed from reflective materials, ensuring the shoe stands out in the night.”
Why the emphasis on reflective materials? Well, that’s because, Nite Jogger when it was first released in 1980, it was all low-light visibility. It was, in fact, the first running shoe to utilize reflective features. We learn something new everyday, don’t we? We have a particular thing for the vibrant collage of oranges, greens and reds. Though the muted model of forest-like palette of moss greens, grass and burgundy looks pretty dope too.
Expect to find striking White Mountaineering branding on the tongue and on the TPU heel counter. Basically, the right amount of WM branding that you won’t miss and not too much that will turn anyone off.
