While there is no official award for “shoe brand of the year”, we can safely establish that adidas earned that unwritten honor two years running. 2015 was won off the strength of Yeezy, Stan, and Ultra Boost. 2016 was a runaway W thanks to NMD and the continuing success of the aforementioned silos. Now, adidas enters the crucial third year of this emergence, and it may be the EQT that will help the brand tighten their grip on the game.

During last month’s Art Basel, adidas Originals completed the first step of the official EQT re-launch with the release of Pusha T’s EQT Boost, a sleek and sexy silhouette bolstered by a pleasing grey-scale colorway dotted with Pusha’s signature design cues. He holds a lot of pride of being the face of the EQT line, going as far as saying he wants to “own” the category. With three incredible collaborations already under his belt, it’s safe to say that the spot is his to lose.

But if there’s someone who can speak more fluently about EQT and the brand as a whole, it’s none other than creative director Nic Galway, a 17-year veteran of adidas who not only grew up during the original Equipment era, but spearheaded the relaunch of the category for today’s audience. We spoke with him briefly at Art Basel, and as he calmly geeked out about working with the likes of Yohji Yamamoto and Yosuke Aiwaza, he exuded an unshakeable confidence about what’s to come.
