size? and adidas Originals continue their long-standing exclusives partnership with the announcement of two upcoming Training PT sneakers. The pairs have been reworked by the legendary graphic designer Brian Cannon, who is responsible for some of Oasis, The Verve, Suede and The Super Furry Animals’ most iconic vinyl covers.
Seminal albums such as Definitely Maybe by Oasis have contributed to the cream, white, blue and purple hues seen on the first adidas Originals Training PT. The other offering appears in a bolder pink, purple, white and gum-soled colorway, which is inspired by other bands that favored the bright colors seen on albums from the ’80s and ’90s.
Cannon, who is the founder of Microdot Graphic Design, told size?, “The point of a record sleeve, I think, is the added value to a customer. It costs just the same to make a bad record sleeve as a good one. It’s a bonus for the fan.”
Detailing such as zig-zag cut Three Stripes, trefoil branding on the tongue and heel, as well as bold flat laces, round off the sneakers’ retro design and heritage visual cues. Both pairs will drop exclusively at size? stores and online for £80 GBP (approx. $98 USD) on October 11.
