We’ve already given an in-depth tour of the latest adidas Consortium City Series Pack. In case you missed out, here’s another look at Colette and Crooked Tongue’s pair. Conforming to the theme of the collaborative pack, both are appropriately designed and dressed to match the respective city that the collaborative brands are from. Colette, always known for their attention to detail, takes on the colors of the French flag to accent this white shoe. The stripes take on a polka effect, one just blue, one just red and the middle mixing the two. The heel tab is garnished with Colette’s logo, while the sole features a partial translucent section, revealing the same red and blue polka dotted pattern found on the stripes.
While the Colette pair gives national pride, the Crooked Tongues pair is more influenced by its specific demographics. Tributing to the CT’s Soho home, the shoes are themed like a raincoat to represent the typical climate. A water-resistant upper is the backlay to the black and red color scheme, on top of a dark gum sole. Found on the peculiar embossed tongue is a British Pint graphic, while the insole shows British sophistication with a slick plaid pattern.
