For this release they pay tribute to their hometown of Aberdeen, “The Granite City”. Both the colour way and material application are inspired by our surroundings which were historically built from locally quarried granite. Executed in suede, mesh and nubuck, the grey upper of the Centaur depicts the seasonal change of Aberdeen’s granite landscape. At the rear of the shoe there is a dark grey suede with a heavy nap representing the gloom of winter which is offset by a dual layered silver mesh and light grey nubuck that leans towards the fairer months of the year. Additional features appear by way of red accents, granite three stripes and multi print sock liner. The detail on the stripes was created by applying a mirror image print of the grain on the stonework at our warehouse to a black 3M reflective material, while the footbed and tongue backer draws inspiration from adidas’ archive boxes and tissue paper. The Hanon x adidas Consortium CNTR is officially available via the Hanon online store.
