For its latest collaborative endeavor, Canada’s OTH has been tapped by adidas Originals to craft its own take on the Tubular Moc Runner for a Consortium release. Opting for a nod to Canadian heritage, the kicks come inspired by the Voyageurs — French Canadian tradesmen of the 18th and early 19th centuries that earned their title by traveling extensively between far-flung Native American communities and trading posts. The result is a moccasin-like sneaker that pairs premium black leather with woolen paneling, moc-toe stitching, two sets of laces, and a unique split-tongue. Capping off the aesthetic are custom insoles that recall the treacherous wintertime lake-crossing expeditions of the tradesmen.
The OTH x adidas Consortium Tubular Moc Runner will be available in limited quantities both in-store and online beginning this Friday, April 17.
