adidas Consortium City Series 2 – Norse Projects – Kopenhagen
Norse Project’s ascent as both a brand and store sees their first adidas Consortium creation following their eminently wearable aesthetic perfectly. Danish design savvy is at work, and less is more, with a tonal take on the Kopenhagen’s track training shoe upper design, down to the 3-Stripes.
Suede lacestays and tongue set it off perfectly, on a navy leather upper, while the yellow of the iconic Kopehagen colours is present on the heel and top eyelet. Perforated elements make all the difference aesthetically, while the etched branding alternately displaying the store name and shoe name is low-key too, eschewing any metallic lettering. Sat atop a white sole unit, matching laces with branded tips complete a classy reworking that evokes the regional style perfectly.
