Crooked Tongues x adidas Consortium Superstar 80s “3Way” (2009)
The adidas Consortium 3Way collection consisted of groups of sneaker shops around the world separated by region. Crooked Tongues was part of the Asian group, the third batch from the collection. They knew they wanted to keep it classic and simple. Originally they were going to go with a nappy suede but ended up with an off-white nubuck body. Embossed on the heel is a knotted lace that represents four minds of the project. Bringing this over the top is once again adidas allowed Crooked Tongues to go with interchangeable tongues and laces, although once again burgundy came straight out the box.
