The ADIDAS ORIGINALS BREWERY PACK – SNEAKERSNSTUFF EXCLUSIVES is a trio of silhouettes that takes inspiration from the old brewery across the street from their store in Stockholm.
Back in the 19th century, the local area used to be dominated by a huge brewing company where you would find giant copper kettles, farmers bringing in malt and hops and, of course, bottle after bottle of beer. These days, there’s no room for large brewing companies in the middle of the city, but the team at SNEAKERSNSTUFF got together with the only brewing company that can be found in Södermalm today, Stockholm Brewing Co., which was founded five years ago. The company takes a step back in time by using organically-grown ingredients and brewing its beer in the traditional way. As they did with their recent bee-inspired collaboration, the guys from Sweden have gone that extra mile and this time have produced their very own beer to go alongside the BREWERY PACK.
The EQT GUIDANCE 93 ‘MALT’, takes on colours inspired by things that you find at a brewery. The minty green shades, a nod to aged copper, combine together with the natural malt shades to create a clean-looking upper. Small hits of copper on the lace jewel and heel pay homage to the large copper kettles used to brew beer in. Underneath, the natural malt midsole continues the clean look and is rounded off with a practical black outsole. The insole features hops, matched up with the classic EQT logo.
The STAN SMITH ‘COPPER KETTLE’ pays homage to the large copper kettles used to brew beer in a more obvious way with an all-liquid copper upper. Natural malt coloured lining, laces and outsole, contrast the upper and manage to tone down the colourway nicely. An embossed logo on the tongue rounds things off and gives the shoe a really premium feel.
The ZX FLUX ‘AGED COPPER’ does what it says on the tin, with a synthetic upper featuring a photo print of aged copper, similar to the finish seen on the roof of the old brewery across the street. Black leather on the heel cage and three stripes add some contrast and tie in with the outsole. Like the other pairs, the lining, laces and midsole are finished in a natural malt colour.
The ADIDAS ORIGINALS BREWERY PACK – SNEAKERSNSTUFF EXCLUSIVES will be split into three separate drops, the next of which is the STAN SMITH ‘COPPER KETTLE’ on SATURDAY 23 MAY and will be available via our RELEASE PAGE, which you can link to below.
