In the last 20 years, New York’s Alife and Paris’ Starcow have grown central to their respective city’s footwear scene. With adidas Consortium, they’ve paired together to present a suede Gazelle and leather Stan Smith for 2017’s Sneaker Exchange series. Both styles are stripped to the basics: the Gazelle is delivered in shades of grey, while the Stan Smith is presented in white and off-white. Additionally, each model sports red, white and blue for the US’ “Stars and Stripes” as well as France’s “Tricolore” on the heels, as homages to each brand’s cultures. White leather appears on the upper of the Stan Smith, embossed with both partner’s logos. The same leather is used for the lining on the Gazelle. Conversely, the sand-colored lining of the Stan Smith is the Gazelle’s upper.

The shoes will go on sale on July 20 in store and online at Alife and Starcow.
