size? is no stranger to tapping into cult classics — just last year it used the adidas Originals Superstar as the canvas for an ode to Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 take on Romeo and Juliet — and now the British sneaker retailer is back with its collaborative adidas Originals Campus 80 “Fight Club.”
As the name suggests, this pair of Campus 80s is inspired by the legendary David Fincher-directed, Brad Pitt-starring film Fight Club, and thankfully plenty of references have been incorporated into the shoe’s design. Starting with the uppers, we find the left and right feet serving different styles as a nod to Tyler Durden’s split personality. As a result, the right shoe is served up in black suede alongside furry Three Stripes and lettering reading “Hustler,” which is a nod to the shirt that Durden wears in the film.
Splitting up the design is a red heel tab graced with adidas Originals‘ Trefoil logo in black, while the left shoe reflects iconography such as The Narrator’s oxford shirts (when in that persona), as well as the sticker and “Project Mayhem,” which has been printed alongside the Three Stripes on this foot.
Across both pairs, you’ll find cigarette burns around the top eyelets, distressed midsoles, printed insoles, and on the bottom, “Fight Club” spread across either foot in the signature pink title hue. Rounding out the collaborative pair is its shoebox which references the pink soap from the film.
Releasing exclusively at size? stores and online on September 10, the size? x adidas Originals Campus 80 “Fight Club” will cost £100 GBP (approximately $138 USD) and come in sizes for men and women. Take a closer look at the editorial shoot above.
In other news, the YEEZY 500 is rumored to drop in “Ash Grey” sometime this fall.
