Adidas x KZK x Mark McNairy Hook Shot 84-Lab
For AW13 fragment Designs Kazuki Kuraishi continues his unique collaboration with Adidas Originals, this time around inviting Mark McNairy, one of the most important figures in modern menswear, to add his distinctive style to a number of key pieces. Returning to the collection's recurring theme of performance sportswear given a contemporary streetwear edge, as with anything Kazuki, the attention to detail and level of finish is impeccable.
An expertly executed take on a classic piece of footwear, the Adidas x KZK x Mark McNairy Hook Shot 84-Lab is constructed with full leather uppers hit with contrasts of plush suede in bold purple and subtle natural at the toe box. A clean and simple take on the iconic Hook Shot, McNairy's iteration sits on top of a classic vulcanised midsole and is finished with a gold foil MCNASTY LO call out and TCMFB, short for Taking Care of M***** F****** Business, tongue patch.
