To celebrate today’s release of the unique “Copa Rose” hybrid, The Shoe Surgeon has hooked adidas‘s own Jon Wexler up with a special edition of the Three Stripes custom. Just one of five pairs in existence, Wex’s “Copa Rose” offers up the beloved “Triple White” motif and once again comes built atop the D Rose 7′s BOOST-cushioned sole unit and dons the Rose signature’s external heel counter, too. For these, however, The Shoe Surgeon ditched the Copa Mundial upper of the original in favor of the recently released Mundial Team while adding the likes of a python toe to the mix.
Feast your eyes on the custom hybrid above and, though you won’t have a chance to get your hands on a pair, you have a slim shot at picking up one of the 25 black/white-gum pairs that are set to hit theshoesurgeon.com later today.
adidas continues to bring forth new variations of its time-honored Gazelle silhouette, following its recent Primeknit rendition. In preparation for the summer ahead, the Three Stripes reveals another lightweight model featuring mesh panels throughout the upper in a neutral dark gray hue. Highlighted with hints of tonal suede and white leather accents along the tongue, heel tab and side stripes, the shoe rests atop the sneaker’s signature minimal rubber outsole. Finished off with its recognizable trefoil emblem stamped on the tongue and heel, you can expect this version of the adidas Gazelle to hit retailers soon.
In perfect timing to help us greet the warmer months, the Nike Air Max Zero lineup has recently released a lightweight summer-ready option. Sporting a deep “Midnight Navy” color scheme, the uppers feature a breathable textile allowing ample airflow, in addition to the no-sew overlay paneling pattern. Sitting just below is the signature Air Max cushioned sole unit. Set to a price of $140 USD, the Nike Air Max Zero Breathe “Midnight Navy” is available now at such retailers as atmos.
Fresh off their collaborative collection unveiled earlier this year, sportswear giant PUMA and Dutch label Daily Paper have recently released two new colorway options of PUMA’s Court Platform silhouette. The streetwear imprint reimagines the classic by draping the uppers in a premium suede finish complimented by the embossed PUMA stripes and metal eyelets. Sitting directly beneath is a thick white sole unit decorated with splashes of green and orange speckles, not to mention a vibrant orange-hued block hitting the lateral midsole region. Available in light green and light grey, dual branding found on the tongue rounds out the shoe’s overall design. The Daily Paper x PUMA Court Platform is available now at participating stockists such as BAIT.
adidas Soccer and adidas Originals collide this spring as the Three Stripes is giving a couple of its pitch-centric silhouettes an EQT-inspired makeover. Aptly dubbed the “EQT Green” pack, the new drop takes on the Equipment range’s iconic hue and applies it to the likes of the ACE cage shoe and the newly introduced Mundial Team — the upper of which was recently used by The Shoe Surgeon to craft the all-white “Copa Rose” for the likes of adi’s own Jon Wexler. In both cases, the kicks are capped off with contrasting black and white accents throughout.
Look for the “EQT Green” ACE and Mundial Team to hit adidas.com later today.
