The next stop on the adidas Consortium World Tour is Tokyo and this October will see the drop of the ADIDAS CONSORTIUM x MITA SEEULATER.

The SEEULATER was a mid-90s Japanese hiking shoe that became something of a cult item in its home country. As you should expect, it’s been given a brand new fresh look, as mita and adidas have taken the old silhouette and added touches that take their inspiration from Tokyo’s urban and natural elements. Anyone who has ever visited the densely populated megacity (metro area population: 38 million) knows that sturdy, rugged footwear is preferable when navigating the crowded streets, so the SEEULATER comes equipped with a heavily treaded outer sole, an elasticated ankle, a cork insole that absorbs and releases moisture, and a robust lacing system common to hiking shoes. The aesthetic touches also take their cues from the city with stone coloured stylings that represent the city’s rock gardens, and glow in the dark speckles on the midsole represent the bright moss that grows on those rocks. The navy and tan upper has touches of red, completing a classic and classy look for this urban/trail hybrid silhouette. Tokyo’s Ame-yoko street, which was home to the shops that sold the brightly colored hiking gear popular in the 1990s, was the inspiration behind the choice of colours.

Our sneaker-loving friends in Japan, especially the good people at mita, rarely put a foot wrong with their collaborations and reinterpretations of classic shoes; these are a must-have for autumn and winter.

The ADIDAS CONSORTIUM x MITA SEEULATER is due to drop on SATURDAY 8 OCTOBER. Keep checking back for more detail information. In the meantime, you can see the current Consortium collection at FOOTPATROL by clicking the banner below.
