adidas Consortium City Series 2 – SneakersNStuff – Stockholm
Released as their tenth anniversary celebrations come to a close, one of Europe’s number one sneaker retailers get their opportunity to play with a stone-cold low-profile classic that takes the original Stockholm’s Swedish flag colours and offers the Sneakersnstuff spin on them. Famed for their offbeat approach to projects, the grey overbrushed suede upper here is complemented by yellow medial 3-Stripes and blue 3-Stripes on the lateral side, all in leather, matched by two colours of top metal eyelets.
The slightly deconstructed leisure shoe feel is retained here, and with ‘SNS’ on one heel and the familiar Trefoil on the other, this flat tongued favourite is set on a gum sole. All three colours incorporated are matched on a set of three branded laces finish an offbeat remix of the original that’s strong in its execution.
