Takahiro Miyashita‘s Number (N)ine fell silent around the turn of the decade but the designer wasn’t just feeling the crunch of a financial meltdown that’d caused the struggles of so many fashion companies. To the contrary, Miyashita was readying a new label after a dozen years on the earlier project, and a couple of years after the Number (N)ine x Converse Odessa collaboration closed out that brand, this new Three Stripes teamup adds attention to his new project. TheSoloist x adidas Originals capsule brings us four steely bluish-lavender suede drops in familiar styles including the Rod Laver (original and Vintage versions), Basket Profi and Norton, and we’ve got photos of the entire set after the jump below. Stick with Sneaker News to find out when they arrive at retailers and let us know which of these classic looks turned out best.
