adidas Originals ”Swedish Satellite Pack” Sneakernstuff Exclusive

I ragazzi di Sneakernstuff ci presentano un'originale collaborazione con Adidas Originals per una mini collezione d'ispirazione spaziale.

Prendendo ancora una volta ispirazione da una storia tutta svedese (vedi sotto), il team del noto snakershop con base a Copenaghen ha collaborato con Adidas per un pack speciale composto da tre modelli: la Stan Smith ”Spacesuit” ispirata alle tute spaziali della NASA; la Tubular Runner ”Starry”, ispirata alle stelle e caratterizzata da un makeup tutto-nero con un pattern reflective di stelle in all-over; infine la Superstar ”Camera”, ispirata alla prima macchina fotografica portata dalla NASA sullo spazio.

Ogni scarpa sarà oggetto di una release diversa: 12 settembre per la Stan Smith, 16 settembre per la Tubolar Runner e 19 Settembre per la Superstar. La Stan Smith sarà disponibile esclusivamente da Sneakernstuff mentre le altre due le potrete trovare anche tra selezionati rivenditori Adidas Originals.

We went to space for inspiration of this SMU pack. In the Fifties, the early days of NASA, and on the very first human spaceflight by the United States, astronaut John Glenn brought his personal camera to take pictures when he was in space. The result was mediocre at best, and NASA realized the need for a more suitable and professional equipment.

After some research and first sketches of what would be needed, NASA discovered that the most efficient way would be to just buy a model of the Swedish camera manufacturer, Hasselblad, over the counter in a camera store in Houston. This marks the beginning of a collaboration between NASA and Hasselblad that has continued for over 50 years. The pictures you have seen of and from Space, has been taken with a Hasselblad camera.

But one series of those pictures taken in space will never be seen. In 1966, on NASA’s space program Gemini X, astronaut Michael Collins accidently lost the Hasselblad camera on his spacewalk. It is forever lost in space, possibly still in orbit around Earth. It’s called the first Swedish satellite.

The adidas Originals ”Swedish Satellite Pack” that is exclusive for Sneakersnstuff draws inspiration from that trip. A pack of three silhouettes starting with the adidas Originals Stan Smith ”Spacesuit” as the first drop, followed by adidas Tubular Runner ”Starry” and rounded up with the adidas Superstar ”Camera”.
