Daniel Arsham And Adidas Collaborate On A Sneaker

Following the release of  Daniel Arsham’s short film hourglass, and his art installation collaboration with adidas, the duo continue their collaboration with a shoe release. Arsham reworks the iconic adidas New York silhouette in his distinct vision. The adidas New York silhouette is a classic with its mesh upper paneled construction, EVA midsole and Dillinger mesh wrapping. These qualities are what made the shoe distinctive in the ’80s, and are still in place as adidas brings the silhouette out from the archives. Arsham keeps these qualities in place with his take on the shoe. Inspired by his Future Relic series, which are white sculptures of familiar and common objects that obsolete in the future world, the sneaker is clean and minimalist. It’s all white with a canvas upper, with frayed edges that are distinctive to Arsham’s relic series. Aside from his name across the tongue of the left shoe and adidas branding on the right, Arsham’s personal stamp is only visible under blacklight, which are words “THE PAST IS PRESENT” printed across the midsole. The sneakers keep Arsham’s aesthetics while still being streetwear ready. These are available at rime locations on July 21st.Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.22.54 PM Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.23.15 PM Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.23.28 PM Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.23.42 PM Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 6.24.02 PM

Daniel Arsham And Adidas

Daniel Arsham is a New York based artist whose work stands on the line between art, architecture and performance. Architecture has a common presence throughout his work, like eroded walls and landscapes where nature takes over structures. There is also a playfulness within existing architecture. He makes architecture do things its not supposed to, confusing the expectations of space and form. His sculpture works are dominated by simple and paradoxical gestures, like a figure wrapped in the surface of a wall. Structural experiment and satire combines Arkham’s work of the real and the imagined. His memories are a core part of his process, using his memories as a prediction of things to come and the effect his own work has on him. The artist’s has had collaborations in the past with design-brands Public School and Richard Chai. His latest is in collaboration with adidas, setting up an audio and visual concept at KITH to recreate an experience of discovery through the past present and future of the adidas brand. The center piece of the exhibit is a working New York payphone done in adidas blue, while the visual and audio elements hint at a deeper meaning. Visitors can physically interact with the exhibit, Arsham and adidas set up a phone line for the public to call. the number gives more info about the collaboration and gives callers a chance to win an exclusive art piece by Arsham created for adidas. In the first installment of his short film Hourglass, Arsham’s collaboration continues with adidas with the reveal of an upcoming shoe release.

The New York is a classic silhouette done in mesh upper with paneled construction, EVA midsole and Dillinger mesh wrapping were the qualities that made the shoe distinctive in the ’80s.
