In a bold, cold statement, OFF THE HOOK boutique presents to us a collaboration piece with adidas Consortium. A project that has been just under two years in the making, we are offered a perspective on the adidas Tubular Moc Runner that urges one to believe that OTH’s vision keeps us skating the line between out-of-the-box trending and confident design intuition.
Drawing inspiration from The Voyageurs, French Canadian tradesmen of the 18th and early 19th centuries, the adidas Consortium x OTH Tubular Moc Runner features premium black leather on the Moc toe box sitting atop the beloved Tubular sole. Wool uppers and a distinctive moccasin stitch draw your attention and lead you to two sets of laces and an unanticipated split tongue. Other features of this collaboration represent a frozen lake design to recall the many treacherous lake crossings during winter expeditions. A lake-blue is also featured on the outsole.
This latest effort from Off The Hook makes me thankful to be in a city where we can be first row spectators to a definite achievement by a local boutique with worldwide recognition. The use of layering of different materials and logo placement just keep adding to the must-own status of this shoe.
The adidas Consortium x OTH Tubular Moc Runner ($165CAD+tax) will be available at OTH on April 17th and at No74 Berlin, No42 Paris as well as selected Consortium retailers worldwide as of April 25th.
