Reprising its relationship with adidas Originals, here Stockholm retailer again looks to its home city for inspiration with the “Brewery” pack. Comprised of three silhouettes – the ZX Flux, Stan Smith and EQT Running Guidance – the range is influenced by the patinas and surfaces of the Stockholm Brewing Company, the newest (and only) brewery in Stockholm’s Södermalm district.
With this in mind, the ZX Flux “Aged Copper” features a clever photo print of aged copper and is touched with pebbled leather at the heel and sidestripes to represent the malting process. Elsewhere, the more straightforward Stan Smith “Copper” symbolizes the factory’s glorious oversized brewing kettles with its shiny bronze upper and malt-colored lining. Rounding out the offering is a fresh rendition of the EQT Running Guidance ‘93 – dubbed the “Malt” – which makes good use of the retro runner’s paneling through mint green, off white and tarnished copper blocking. At the interior of all three silhouettes is a special co-branded insole that features a photo screen of SBC’s specially-sourced hops. With each release perfectly casual for beer-drinking days (hopefully we’ll enjoy many this summer), pick up the EQT Running Guidance on May 16, with the Stan Smith and ZX Flux drops releasing on May 23 and May 30 respectively.
