adidas Originals has drawn from a number of influences for its latest collection, the “Tokyo Pack.” Comprising a Stan Smith, Superstar, and two NMD R1 sneakers, the collection references Milton Glaser’s iconic “I Love New York” logo and puts an apt spin on it, replacing NY with Tokyo and the red love heart with a red trefoil logo.

The Stan Smith and Superstar are made from premium white leather and feature black-and-red details all around. For the Stan Smith, adidas Originals has colored in the tongue print in red, and adds its “I Love Tokyo” stamp to the rear-quarter. The Superstar sees its classic trefoil branding receive a black-and-red makeover on the tongue, and sports its love letter to Tokyo parallel to the three stripes. Both are finished with white laces that feature red stripe-tipped aglets.

adidas Originals’ NMD R1s appear in both black and white. The black pair comes with a matching BOOST sole unit that features white and black plugs dressed with traditional Kanji lettering. The white pair does the same, only it features a white sole unit with red and white plugs. Both pairs sport the “I Love Tokyo” stamp on their leather heel components.

Rounding out the collection is a selection of complementing clothes, comprising a red-and-white tie-dyed hoodie, a cream hoodie, and a selection of T-shirts. Take a look at the adidas Originals “Tokyo Pack” in the gallery above, and pick up everything now exclusively on atmos Tokyo’s website.
