Heavyweight adidas collectors Quote and freelance illustrator Peter O'Toole's collaborative friendship began in 2011, with a poster featuring 98 pairs from Quote's own collection, hand illustrated by O'Toole. The latest result from their ongoing partnership is this adidas Originals Consortium ZX 420 'Quotoole'. Inspired by a pair of vintage adidas Denver from Quote's enviable archive. Taking the more performance driven ZX model, the tandem have applied the Denver's strong blue/claret colourway to the trainer with added touches such as an antiqued off-white sole unit and portrait labels to the rear tongue tab.
Constructed with smooth suede uppers, mesh panelling and synthetic detail, this carefully considered design sits on top of a dual density mid-sole given a slight vintage treatment. Available this Saturday November 15 at our Toronto, W4th, Chinatown locations, remaining pairs will be made available online later in the day - adidas Consortium ZX420 Quotoole
