With Beauty And Youth fresh off their “bespoke” pair with New Balance, the private label is gearing for a minimal take on adidas’ Continental 80. While its contemporary silhouette makes for adventurous possibilities, the Japanese collaborators are doing what feels right for their own universe, adorning the model with a pairing of light creams and stark whites. Reflective striping subtly line the bare bones profile, with branding finding itself in dark contrast near the lace stay and the tongue tab. Overlays and toe boxes stick to one singular tone while the outsole an many accents balance the kit in compliment. Swappable black laces come with its own shining accents, allowing for diverse expression. Though only available for pre-order currently, the pair will see a full release come Mid March at a price point of ¥13,000 Yen.
