adidas have gone from strength to strength in the past few months, delivering a slew of retro remakes as well as some impressive and already sort after new silhouettes. They are showing no sign of slowing up, this time giving us something for the our better halves. Introducing the ZX Flux ADV Virtue PK.

1984 was the year that the ZX family began to catch the eye of high-mileage runners the world over, a fascination that would end up lasting for decades. With a futuristic look and feel based on the concept of biomechanics, the ZX Flux ADV Virtue PK satisfies the demand for streamlined running inspired silhouettes for Women. The rigorous shape of the previous ZX Flux has been refined and minimised, giving way to a sleek runner with feminine lines. Boasting a full Primeknit construction, reimagined with a bold all-over print inspired by analog technology. Whilst the disruptive graphic adorns the forefoot, a TPU heel shell and tooling completes the futuristic picture.

The monochromatic nature of the ZX Flux ADV Virtue PK pack allows for easy pairings with a number of our more androgynous items, resulting is some relaxed and over sized silhouettes that boast comfort and style above all else. A prime example of this is Kapital’s Ring Coat a unique outerwear piece from the brand's archives. Referencing elements from the US Navy, the oversized silhouette features a large shawl collar and hood, 4 ample sized front situated pockets and adjustable drawstrings at the waist and bottom hem offering variations of wear, perfect if its a touch too small or big. Paired brilliantly with the Danish kings of cool, Norse Projects, latest; the Vorm Mercerised Sweat in Fashion Pink and the always relevant Aros Light Twill Chino in Black. Finishing everything off is the Larose Paris Traveller in Charcoal.

Bleu de Paname’s timeless french aesthetic and respect of heritage has never been more evident than in their, very much unisex, Knitted Wool Kimono in Indigo. Featuring traditional 3/4 sleeves, waist tie, duel front pockets and ribbed hems, this piece oozes quality and comfort. Expertly teamed with adidas originals’s Cropped Pintuck Pants pin Black and Long Sleeve Tee from the brands latest venture XBYO. All of this is topped off, literally, with the polarising Mouton Tulip Hat from Japanese leather artisans Hender Scheme.

adidas Originals have delivered their latest sportswear inspired casual wear. This time bringing us a re-stock and re-engineered version of the beloved Stan Smith.

Created in 1971 for tennis star and name sake Stan Smith, this clean-cut and timeless silhouette holds a special place in style history. A smooth full grain leather upper with perforated 3-Stripes and tonal rubber outsole have made this low top into a celebrated sneaker icon. The Stan Smith Vintage was first released in 1973 as the first full leather performance court shoe and has gone on to become an off-court icon. Featuring a dimpled outsole for optimal grip and a reinforced heel for achilles support, the Vintage edition is backed up with a subtle nod to the original with a Goldfoil callout on the anterior alongside the trademark perforated stripes and the original colourway of all-white with a Fairway Green heel tab. With Stan himself smiling out from the tongue, the Stan Smith is worn around the globe by everyone from the most ardent of sneaker connoisseurs to the recreational tennis player.

For Spring 2017 adidas have introduced a new take on a classic with the Stan Smith, Leather Sock. Featuring a seamless, premium leather, one-piece upper. The tongue and heel are constructed from the same piece as the rest of the upper, resulting in an interesting look and above all else…comfort. The tongue itself has been laser-attached to the rest of the shoe, to evade any potential coziness-killers such as seams and stitching. In terms of design, the shoe is a elegant and stylish as you would expect, with fine laser etched details at the tongue and heel providing a more luxurious look and feel.

Both the Stan Smith and Stan Smith, Leather Sock are available now at our 1/15 Mckillop Street location and online.
