UK boutique hanon has collaborated with adidas Originals on the Kegler Super sneaker.
“Originally introduced as an indoor skittles shoe, the Kegler has retained a cult following over the years since its inception in the 1980’s. This Fall we have teamed up with adidas with the re- lease of a Consortium lux edition in a black on black colour up.
Inspiration for the shoe was mainly taken from our favourite adidas Originals, paying homage to classics such as the Samba and Forest Hills. The idea being, to rework the Kegler in a upper that is unfamiliar, but one that has the look and feel of a quintes- sential adidas colour-way.
Executed in a clean all black application, the shoe is finished in a plush, punched leather upper with tonal suede overlays and offset by a yellow Forest Hills style outsole. We have applied a needle perf glove leather tongue backer, gold accents and tor- sion pegs, as well as a gold trefoil on the heel counter. Dual branding appears on the tongue and Consortium is represented in the form of their signature top blue eyelet.
Our Keeps On Burning logo also features trhoughout the shoe and marks our 20th anniversary since opening in November 1990. The flame image and slogan is inspired by the badges and patches associated with Norther Soul – an underground music scene established in the north of England during the 60’s.
And finally, to complete the shoe with a Scottish tip we have added a silk screened tartan footbed, featuring hand numbered labels that nod to the gold sizing decals found in footbeds of early adidas releases. Die Marke Mit Den 3 Streifen!”
The sneaker will release on November 26th. Check out the video after the jump, produced for the release.
