adidas ZXZ KZK Waterproof (Obyo)

A good example of my stupidity: I bought these when they dropped, sold them – and then ended up re-purchasing them again at a vastly-inflated price. That’s just how I roll. Kazuki’s product design for the adidas Obyo series has been amazing. Not everything has been to my tastes, but that’s fine: I’d rather see […]

adidas Collwood ST

The clocks changed last night, so what better time to go through the wardrobe and swap a few things over? Nestled amongst the piles of t-shirts and bags of jackets were these Collwood STs that I’d forgotten about. These pre-production samples have got a Bucktown ST name tag on the side – I guess the […]

adidas A.R.C. ZX 7000

I never paid that much attention to the ZX 7000 to be honest: in my mind, it sat a little awkwardly between the regular runners and other more rugged models, such as the EQT. Well, that was my loss. Treis and Kunle from Alife’s Rivington Club came over with us to adidas HQ in Herzogenaurach, […]

adidas Torsion SP Low Gore-Tex®

A snow day – again – means that some waterproofing is required. Ditch the moonboots and find yourself a pair of these adidas Torsion Specials. They’re not the tallest model (you’ll get wet socks if you’re hiking through anything deeper than 2 inches), but my feet were still bone dry after an hour trudging through […]

Sneaker Freaker

Wow. I wasn’t expecting that to go online so quickly after the shoot with Errol. Woody and the guys at Sneaker Freaker have just published a ‘catch up’ feature on my big (ie. silly) collection of trainers/sneakers after their interview with me for the Vintage feature they did a couple of years back. The models […]

adidas Crooked Tongues ZX 9000

The Crooked Tongues piece in the adidas aZX puzzle, Charlie and Gary did a cracking job with the colours and material specification on these ZX 9000s. They’re packed with loads of great details: carbon fibre heel strike, charcoal 3M panels and other cool elements. I’m not sure these got the attention they deserved when they […]

adidas DQM ZX 90

I worked on the adidas aZX Consortium project: I conducted several of the interviews for the film side of the project while I was still at U-Dox. The product range came out almost a year after completing the background graft and I picked up as many of the shoes as I could. DQM’s cycling-intended model […]
