adidas Consortium is back with a second take on the Consortium Runner 4D, the aptly named Consortium Runner 4D V2. Much like its predecessor, it presents adidas‘s latest tech in a lifestyle-focused package — but it separates itself vastly with its new upper, which adds plenty of fresh flair.
Debuting in a “College Navy” colorway that’s decidedly more grey than cerulean, the Consortium Runner V2 4D presents a significant number of layered details, all dressed in soft grey and light mint green hues. Abstract-shaped synthetic overlays stretch across the upper, and are encircled by embroidered Three Stripe graphics on the midfoot plus a dark grey heel. The asymmetrical lace system is secured by grey suede eyestays, and a green fabric strip runs the length of the throat while a small Consortium tag appearing on the tongue’s other side.
If you remove the insole, you’ll also see printed graphics that provide “tech specs” and a translucent window that enables you to look at the 4D material from the top down. Of course, the entire Futurecraft midsole is constructed of a latticed structure dressed in signature “Aero Green” — one that’s assembled via a high-tech process dubbed “Digital Light Synthesis.” A green Continental rubber outsole completes the look.
This “College Navy” adidas Consortium Runner V2 4D will release for $350 USD on December 21 at retailers like Solebox. As the first Runner 4D was the centerpiece of collaborations with retailers like KITH, INVINCIBLE, Sneakersnstuff and Foot Patrol, we’ll likely see some co-branded iterations of this new silhouette in 2020 as well.
