Among the premier releases during the 35th Anniversary of adidas’ Superstar was a collection of music inspired releases. adidas has in a sense revisted this theme with a new Sounds of City collection. These include designs based off the Tuff Gong and the Marley Family, Blue Note, Motown, Jam Master Jay and Alligator Records. Matching track jackets are also available. No word yet on a release date and availability.
For Vancouver based Finale, they approached this season’s collection with a goal in mind to focus on qualities and details often overlooked. Their hope is to push the brand in new directions and expand their current hip-hop demographic. Some of the top designs include a collaboration with Vancouver bike shop Super Champion, Start of your Ending, Losing My Religion and Stiletto. Current stockists of the Finale 2007 Fall Collection can be seen here.
