There's no fashion hub that's quite as creative as the adidas Maker's Lab. Intended to encourage collaboration and challenge the boundaries of athleisurewear as we know it, the Lab has recently played host to three different designers – each of whom reimagined the classic Campus 80.
Set to drop at an open-market auction on StockX later this month, the three iterations are already rumoured to sell out. But considering each pair only boasts 333 units, that's unsurprising.
The first of the pairs, designed by Alex Nash, takes a 'more is more' approach. With colour clashing neons sitting alongside earthy hues, durable ropey laces are covered by an oversized branded strap and a double-layered tongue and heel steal the show.
Perhaps the most pared-back of the three styles, Helen Kirkum's version looks as though it's been deconstructed then not-so-delicately put back together. Unusual details – like a size tab on the toe, loose threads and a removable heel piece – emulate Kirkum's creative flair, while the simple white hue and three-stripe inserts stay true to adidas' world-famous style.
The last of the three, designed and crafted by Shun Hirose, is the style that remains most true to the original design. Combining rich colours like navy and burgundy, the hues are offset by contrasting stitching. With very subtle details, the blue velvet extends down over part of the sole for added interest.
Unique and entirely covetable, don't just cop one of these pairs. Because the best things come in threes.
