adidas Originals and New York City based contemporary artist Daniel Arsham launch part two of a three-shoe collaboration. The second instalment is a re-working of a vintage runner for the present day, with modern materials being the focal point. The New York ‘Present’ has been constructed with a leather-lined neoprene upper with an almost deconstructed and futuristic feel about it with metallic pops throughout. The sleek and stealthy upper is sat on a Boost midsole with a rubber outsole and features dual branding to the tongue, a quite unique, shiny metallic 3-Stripes detail to the side walls, replicated on the heel tab and tonal laces round things off nicely.
