Adidas Consortium x UNDFTD Los Angeles.

by Henrik Buzzi


Following in the footsteps of the Tubular and the ZX Flux, the Los Angeles is the latest brand new silhouette to emerge from the adidas Originals design stable. With echoes of the classic LA trainer, the Los Angeles is a fast, modern runner with a stripped back aesthetic. To launch the Los Angeles, adidas Originals has enlisted long time partner and LA’s most established purveyors of quality street-wear, UNDEFEATED, who apply a familiar military aesthetic to this new silhouette. The upper, which consists of a mesh toe and heel, complimented with a durable ripstop mid-section, gets an all-over urban camo treatment in a subdued color-way of warm grey tones, all tied together with black accents in the Los Angeles’ signature overlock stitch, leather collar and laces. Also in black are the welded matte Three-Stripes on the lateral side, the rear stripe bearing the shoe’s name LOS ANGELES on the right foot, whilst the left foot highlights it’s design partner UNDEFEATED, all set in a military type face that will be familiar to UNDFTD fans. The medial stripes are executed in a contrast golden buff tone matching the tongue label, which bears the trefoil above UNDFTD’s five-strike logo.
