Adidas Originals x Neighborhood

Adidas Originals x NEIGHBORHOOD Collaborative Collection.

To extend a partnership that has spanned over a decade, Adidas and the Japanese streetwear brand Neighborhood have tapped Cali Thornhill DeWitt—the Los Angeles-based artist who notably aided Kanye West in the creation of his massively popular Life of Pablo tour merchandise in 2016—to create an extensive collection of footwear and apparel. The offering is inspired by Japan's take on terrace culture and the adoption of classic military wear by motorcycle gangs. It will include two pairs of the soccer-inspired Kamanda, a Stan Smith Boost, I-5923, and corresponding apparel. Each pair uses a color palette of black, olive green, and tan. The Kamanda is offered in tonal black or olive green options, the Stan Smith Boost sits an olive leather upper on a white mid-sole, and the I-5923 utilizes a green upper with tan suede overlays. Neighborhood's signature Old English font makes appearances across each silhouette as well through tongue and heel branding, as well as debossing on the Stan Smith Boost and Kamandas.

About NEIGHBORHOOD.

NEIGHBORHOOD is a Japanese streetwear brand founded in 1994, by Shinsuke Takizawa. The brand produces premium quality motorcycle apparel combined with military, work-wear, counter-culture, Native American and outdoor themes. The brand is now considered as one of the most influential brands in modern contemporary streetwear, alongside WTAPS, UNDERCOVER and A Bathing Ape.Of the trinity of cult streetwear brands founded in 1994, NEIGHBORHOOD may be the most singularly focused, at least at first glance. Founded by Shinsuke Takizawa in the Harajuku neighborhood of Tokyo, Japan, NEIGHBORHOOD surfaced before retail shops—outside of Jun Takahashi and Nigo’s NOWHERE store—covered the area. Takizawa has shaped his brand with the concept of crafting clothes that pay homage to motorcycle riders and their culture—a cultist subculture in its own right. A rider himself, Takizawa’s main hobbies include customizing cars and motorcycles and playing bass guitar in a band—interests clearly reflected in the clothes his brand produces. Takizawa first came in contact with biker culture through 60’s American films like Easy Rider, which itself has become a major influence for the designer over the course of his career. As a young adult, Takizawa had a friend who lived near an American army base and was immersed in American motorcycle culture. This influence clearly rubbed off on Takizawa, as he grew long hair and started wearing motorcycle boots. In his early twenties, he purchased his first motorcycle—a Shovel Head FLH—that cost $8,000, which he had to pay off in 48 installments.Of course, in the most literal sense, the brand is widely known by streetwear nerds for its meticulously faded and patched denim, but it is Takizawa’s willingness to pull from a wide range of personal, historical, and pop cultural references that keeps the clothing fresh in the minds of consumers and insulates NEIGHBORHOOD from feeling like just another heritage brand.
