For the more classic Haven, End and Bodega brought their patchwork of Japanese denim just to the three stripes, reserving a camel suede for the upper. As a 1970s runner, the Haven was designed to be as light and flexible as possible. But on this take, the shoes are leather lined and feature a moccasin stitch across the heel, offering a much more menswear feel than a historically accurate execution. The Iniki is a new sneaker intentionally made to look retro, while the Haven is as retro as it gets in the sneaker world. Both pairs will be limited so if this is your jam, be ready to grab them quickly.
The adidas Consortium x END x Bodega Iniki Runner and Haven will release in-stores at HAVEN Vancouver & Toronto on Saturday, July 8th at 11AM local time. Any remaining pairs will be made available online at a later time. Sizes Available: 7US -12US -- adidas’ latest project as part of its Sneaker Exchange program ties UK’s END and Boston based retailer – Bodega. Examining adidas’ rich history the two partners revive the 1970’s Haven trainer in a luxurious make comprised from supple suede with smoother leather and Boro patchwork detailing. The more contemporary Iniki runner receives similar treatment with a tonal blue patchwork upper from denim, chambray and suede – all resting on lightweight Boost midsoles. -- WWW.HAVENSHOP.COM @adidas #HAVENSHOP #adidas #adidasConsortium #Bodega #END #ENDClothing
