To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the adidas EQT (adidas’ Equipment line) range, the three stripe label has challenged some of its most frequent collaborators to work on the EQT Prototype silhouette. One of these collaborators is Berlin-based sneaker retailer Solebox, who are famed for their attention to details when it comes to sneakers collabs.
Decked out in a neutral-hued colourway, this latest effort is actually inspired by vintage racing suits from the early days of grand prix racing. Only 300 pairs will be made and they’ll come complete in a model vehicle inspired box, with every 10th customer also receiving a limited-edition model car.
The sneakers themselves are crafted from a lightweight mesh fabric across the uppers, giving them a utilitarian and translucent look, absent from any three stripe branding. Yellowish white details adorn the design, with suede panels adding to the depth of the look. A plush inner lining makes sure these are comfortable as ever while striped laces and a red-striped heel tab keep them fastened securely on feet. Dual-branding appears on the heels while outdoor-style soles conceal plenty of cushioning.
If you’re looking to get your hands on this serious pair, then be aware that they’re set to be a very limited releases as stated above, so you might have to go to some lengths to secure a pair!
