Two different worlds combine in adidas consortium A//D

Take a giant leap into new territory, with adidas Originals’ new sci-fi inspired A//D Parallel Dimension project.

Two different worlds combine - it transpires that they’re not that different after all. Adidas Originals took a look back into the archives and uncovered two seminal silhouettes from the early 2000’s - the Twinstrike & Adistar Comp. Despite appearing starkly different - with varying styles and aesthetics, the two are constructed from similar materials with the same structure.

As part of the new project, adidas Originals reworked the two, resulting in the Twinstrike a//d and Adistar Comp a//d.



First up, the Twinstrike a//d presents a clear departure from it’s early 2000’s iteration, with Climacool mesh, premium suede, glossy leathers and reflective details are combined in a striking, futuristic design, finished with a complex ergonomic lacing system for optimum fit.

Accompanying the Twinstrike a//d, the Adistar Comp a//d features a similar material construction of Climacool mesh and premium suede atop the original tooling of its namesake, whilst the shoe’s lacing system is defined by webbing tape panels across the vamp and sides.

On the face of it, what may appear to be different to us, is often not so different at all.
