Chicago's Adidas Originals Flagship Store

Am Donnerstag weiht adidas in Chicago seinen größten Flagship-Store 
weltweit ein.
Der neue Superstore an der North Milwaukee Avenue 1532 in Chicago 
erstreckt sich über mehr als 900 Quadratmeter und soll seiner Umgebung 
nachempfunden sein. Die Design-Inspiration stammt zum Teil vom 
Schnellbahnsystem der Stadt, das von der Bevölkerung "Chicago L" genannt 
wird. 
Im Innenbereich wird eine sogenannte "Community Wall" zu finden sein, 
eine Art Anschlagbrett, an dem Events in der Region angepriesen werden.

Im Rahmen der Eröffnungsfeierlichkeiten wird im neuen Flagship-Store 
in Chicago, exklusiv der adidas EQT Support ADV "Wicker Park" gelauncht. 
Produziert wurden nur 350 Paar Schuhe, die für 150 USD (umgerechnet 
rund 128 Euro) verkauft werden. 
Auch beim neuen Sneaker-Modell stand die Stadt Chicago Design-Pate: 
Die Farben stammen beispielsweise aus dem Stadtwappen.

Adidas beauftragte außerdem Künstler und Non-Profit-Organisationen 
mit der Herstellung individueller Kunstwerke für den Verkaufsbereich.

The Ten

Virgil Abloh and Nike announced their new design project “The Ten
The 10 shoes were divided into two themes. The first, “REVEALING,” was 
designed to look accessible: hand-cut, open-source and reconstructed. 
It includes the Air Jordan I, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air 
VaporMax and Nike Blazer Mid. 
The second, “GHOSTING,” was designed with translucent uppers to further 
the idea of revealing and unite the second set of silhouettes through common 
material. 
It includes the Converse Chuck Taylor, Nike Zoom Fly SP, Nike Air Force 1 
Low, Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 and Nike Air Max 97.

In one gesture, I wanted to underscore how the design system and 
manufacturing of Nike are so perfect,” says Abloh. “By combining these 
shoes with design that amplifies their ‘handmade’ quality, we’re 
intensifying the human element and expanding the emotional connection of 
these 10 icons.”

Nike will host “Nike Off Campus” events in New York City and London to 
celebrate The Ten through presentations of the full collection and 
exchanges about the ideas that inspired it. "Nike Off Campus" will take 
place in New York City from September 6 to 8 at 23 Wall Street and in 
London from September 14 to 19 at NikeLab 1948 LDN.

The first five icons of The Ten — the Air Jordan I, Nike Blazer, Nike Air Presto, 
Nike Air Max 90 and Nike Air VaporMax — will be pre-released at NikeLab 
stores in New York City (Sept. 9-13), London (Sept. 18-22), Milan (Sept. 21-25) 
and Paris (Sept. 26-30).

The full collection including all ten silhouettes will be available in November 
at NikeLab stores and select retailers worldwide.
