Running offers unparalleled opportunities for self-expression and fulfilment – every runner shapes the sport into something truly unique. Whether running towards the dream of a podium finish or running to escape the stresses of the workday you’ve just left behind; from stylishly pounding the pavements of your urban neighbourhood or successfully navigating tracks and trails further afield: every runner has their own motivations for pulling on their kit and tying their laces.
As such, adidas has launched the Run City Pack for FW19 which explores all creative perspectives. Part of this pack is none other than Sin Takizawa's imprint NEIGHBORHOOD. NEIGHBORHOOD’s graphic treatments and bold use of reflective materials against an original NEIGHBORHOOD night camo pattern are all about you and your running squad standing out in the stealthiest manner imaginable. “I was inspired by the thought of running through Tokyo… you are running, but at the same time you are blending into the city smoothly and effortlessly.” It is a collection designed for running and overcoming whatever obstacles the city throws your way, with parkour being a major influence on the collection.
On foot, Takizawa applies bold logo graphics to the UltraBOOST 19 running shoe, while its more rugged ‘All Terrain’ counterpart features the triangular geometric print that has featured across numerous adidas x NEIGHBORHOOD collections. That combination of pattern and print is used to striking effect across a comprehensive range of apparel and accessories. From the gloves to the compression tee and tights, to the shorts and short-sleeved shirt: each piece can be swapped in and out depending on the needs of the runner and the run. Whatever the combination of apparel and footwear, the resulting outfit is unmistakeably NEIGHBORHOOD.
The adidas Run City Pack FW19: NEIGHBORHOOD will be available soon at Surrender Store.
