The Adidas Consortium Torsion Allegra Pack showcases some classic 90’s running technology. Designed to allow for greater support and flexibility, the Torsion bar system has been brought back as part of Consortium’s latest collaboration with Berlin Boutique Solebox which is centered around a re-issue of the Torsion Allegra S.
Solebox have maintained a close relationship with Adidas since opening their doors over a decade ago, collaborating on numerous Consortium projects, which have seen them recreating the EQT support, Rod Laver and Berlin, amongst others. The newly reworked Torsion Allegra builds on this history of collaboration, combining it with due reverence to the Torsion’s athletic heritage, with an archive-inspired colourway and detailing that is quintessentially ‘Solebox’. A smooth suede upper is finished with neon green nylon mesh on the 3-stripes, the medial and the sockliner. The heel tabs are accentuated with embossed alternate Adidas and Solebox logos and the tongue loops feature the Berlin-based store’s logo on the inner.
The second shoe in the pack, the Adidas Originals designed Torsion Allega EQT, retains the same classic athletic silhouette but leans toward a more subtle colourway, opting for a white and taupe upper and mesh toe box, accented by flashes of forest green throughout. As with Solebox’s version, the EQT also references the original 90’s Torsion with its red neoprene sockliner and the Adi logo embossed onto the heel patch, while the shoe is finished with the Consortium logo woven into the tongue loops.
Both the Adidas Originals X Solebox Allegra and the Torsion Allegra EQT will be available in highly limited numbers from 00:01 on December 22nd 2012. For further details contact us at [email protected] or call on 0191 231 3983
