adidas Consortium and German sneaker boutique Solebox join forces on a duo of collaborative models this month, putting premium materials and expert construction to create elevated takes on the Quesence and Pureboost DPR silhouettes.
Inspired by the craftsmanship of Italian leatherworkers, the collaboration sees one classic and one performance model recontextualized through the use of premium suedes and leathers throughout their construction, while vegetable-tanned accents tip their hat to the release’s artisanal inspirations.
The Pureboost DPR steps forth, featuring a two-tone circular knit upper across the toebox, countered with premium nubuck panels across the eyestay, tongue and heel. Vegetable-tanned leather accents on the heel and tongue add contrast to the shoe’s soft, tonal design, finished with embroidered 3-stripes, a BoostTM midsole, full leather lining and an embossed branding detail on the heel.
Ultimately, the collaboration is an understated translation of classic adidas performance design into an elevated, fashion-forward context. The result is a testament to the beauty of timeless design with flawless execution.
