adidas Originals have finally unveiled their latest offering with Palace Skateboards, a brand new silhouette dubbed the PALACE Pro Trainer. Constructed from both Primeknit and perforated suede in this debut collection, the PALACE Pro incorporates parts of the Gazelle with modern styling cues such as the heel cage and Primeknit upper, with the black colourway sporting that beautiful gum sole our readers from across the pond seem to love. The ongoing relationship with Palace and adidas Originals have been striving to create classic European casual wear with a contemporary aesthetic, and the PALACE Pro is a testament to all the amazing possibilities this partnership could lead to. Arriving at select adidas Originals stockists on the 16th of May.

adidas has unveiled a new addition to the Primeknit family with its adizero Feather Primeknit. Featuring a fully woven Primeknit upper in black/phantom, this shoe offers up a slim profile that is both snug on the foot and airy. Standout details include the woven details at the heel and tongue, as well as the hard plastic heel support at the rear. The upper rests atop a contrasting white lightweight midsole and black rubber outsole.

adidas Originals Stan Smith Primeknit

Stan Smith Primeknit | The Style RaconteurSince it’s re-release at the start of the year, we’ve seen a number of different looks for the adidas Originals Stan Smith, including some luxurious varieties and even a few customs courtesy of Pharrell Williams, and now adidas Originals is giving the classic silhouette a new twist with the release of this Primeknit version. Instead of the traditional leather uppers, this new model features a fully knit upper in the traditional white and green. In a nice mix of old and new, this shoe retains the original off-white rubber sole for a timeless look. No word on a general release date yet but you can pick these up now at Taiwan’s Invincible.

adidas Element Refine JS

adidas’s latest running shoe is the lightweight and environmentally friendly Element Refine JS. For me I like it because it seems to be a cross between Roshe Run & a Flyknit racer which has been 2 of my fav shoes in the past year.

The shoe features a unique circular mesh fabric upper produced using lessons learned during the development of Primeknit. Strategically placed material splits minimize the amount of material required and support within the upper comes from the strategic placement of both the seams and the 3 Stripe overlay. The seams, though cut and sewn through a traditional process, are anything but and have been placed using insights gleamed from adidas’s extensive research in the running category. The most efficient cut and sew shoe in adidas’s history, with a 90% material usage efficiency, the Element Refine JS is definitely a shoe to keep an eye on this season. Stay tuned for more details and its winter release.
