For those who missed our previous posts, Adidas Consortium are finally back with the Tabula Rasa collection. This latest concept centres around five classic Adidas silhouttes, each one representing a different facet of Adidas’ vast back catalogue, expertly finished in premium monochrome suede and leather. Translating as ‘clean slate’ in Latin, Tabula Rasa centres around minimal detailing that allows the classic lines of trainers such as the ZX500, Baltic Cup and Proshell star, with subtle, embossed detailing that runs throughout the range.
The Adidas Consortium Tabula Rasa collection launches in-store at 10 a.m. GMT on Saturday 26th November and online at 00.01 GMT on Saturday 10th December. We’ve featured an up close look at the shoes, and some extra information regarding each pair for all of you who are desperate for a closer look.
First released in the 1980s, the ZX500 was one of the most advanced running shoes of it’s time, and this classic runner is just as popular today. Consortium have reworked the ZX500 in premium, tonal pigskin, soft leather and nylon suede, for an aesthetic that is truly befitting of the Tabula Rasa concept.
The ZX500 OG TR will retail at £99. For further information on the release, drop us an email – [email protected]
A true classic of the basketball court, the Proshell is a mid-height version of the world-famous Superstar, first release almost 30 years ago. Making a long awaited return to the Consortium range, the Pro-Shell TR comes in premium pigskin with a tonal rubber ‘shell’ toe.
The Pro-Shell TR will retail at £109. For further information on the release, drop us an email – [email protected]
Taking it’s name from the handball tournament in which the shoe debuted, the Baltic Cup is a 70s silhouette that is a little less well known than some of the other Tabula Rasa silhouettes. Nevertheless, the premium, tonal pigskin finish make this an exceptional addition to the Blank Slate collection.
The Baltic Cup TR will retail at £95. For further information on the release, drop us an email – [email protected]
A true archive classic, the Matchplay – or to some Arthur Ashe – is an understated tennis shoe that is hugely popular with collectors. The premium, off-white uppers with embossed detailing lend perfectly to the clean, subtle lines of this future Consortium classic.
The Matchplay TR will retail at £99. For further information on the release, drop us an email – [email protected]
The Decade is one of Adidas’ most famous basketball silhouettes, and has been one of the most popular archive styles for years. The combination of premium grain leather, suede and nubuck perfectly showcase the Decade’s classic lines.
The Decade TR will retail at £115. For further information on the release, drop us an email – [email protected]
