For the first time, adidas will release a series of footwear in collaboration with another footwear entity, Hender Scheme, the acclaimed Japanese label founded by Ryo Kashiwazaki in Tokyo. Hender Scheme takes three adidas silhouettes and completely and utterly reimagines them as handmade luxury goods.
Available in Hender Scheme’s iconic pastel tone, the MicroPacer is stripped of its pedometer, the NMD has its BOOST™ midsole removed and the Superstar is elevated to an unprecedented level of luxury. All handmade in Tokyo and available in extremely limited quantities, Hender Scheme replaces the original soles with a nail-in sole which is fully replaceable. The label has a unique sizing system whereby the number of nails in the outsole corresponds with each model’s size.
As well as being designed to last, the Hender Scheme models will develop character with use. The design process questions both they way products are manufactured and how they are used. Sneakers are typically designed to be worn out but by use of tanned leather and through craftsmanship, the aging process also changes. The tanned leather upper ages beautifully and allows the footwear to slowly evolve, sometimes even taking on an altogether new appearance as they get older. As well looking stunning box fresh, all three models are built to be worn and will get better and better over time.
Hender Scheme have followed the same method of artisanal craftsmanship they usually work with, from the Tokyo workshop they produce in, to the hands that create them and applying this method to adidas Originals, elevating three models to new heights of luxury.
