Chris and his team brought the collection to New York to shoot the next season’s lookbook. Working with photographers, Justin Bridges and Creations of LA, and stylist, Matthew Henson, the east coast set a new perspective for the 5 year old label.
“I split a lot of my work and time between Los Angeles and New York, so naturally a lot of inspiration is drawn from both,” said Stamp of the collection. “‘The New Soldier’ focuses closely on classic military detailing with a palette centered on natural, desaturated color. For me, that inspiration translated to my experiences in New York, so for the first time, we took our team to the city to shoot a new perspective on the collection, than we’ve produced in the past. The construction of ‘ The New Soldier’ collection starts with monochromatic cues, transforming down to a washed through color palette including angora, shiitake, pewter, and indigo.”

– A tale of two seas and one city –
– An aquatic EQT drenched in history –
– Footwear from the heel of southern Italy –
Taranto, September 2016
The City of Taranto was built by the Spartans on the coast of Southern Italy. Together, adidas Consortium and Taranto-natives Sneakers76 present a stunning EQT Running Guidance 93 in a colorway inspired by the sea surrounding the city. Greek myth has it that Taras, son of Poseidon, was shipwrecked off the coast before being rescued by a dolphin, and went on to first found the city.
The aquatic green on the perforated toe represents Taranto’s natural harbor – known to locals as the Small Sea, while the EQTs mid-foot section represents the swing bridge, Ponte Girevole, which crosses the edge of the harbor. The grey is a similar tone to the modern bridge while the golden brown is a nod to the wooden structure which formerly stood in its place. This theme of new and old is continued on the heel where the adidas Equipment logo is stitched in silver on the left shoe and gold on the right. The seafoam green on the rear of the shoe represents the Big Sea – the open ocean which Taranto overlooks.
Sneakers76 are history obsessives. The retailer takes a classic runner from the adidas archive and reworks it to honor its own, south Italian, heritage. This EQT Running Guidance 93 comes packaged in a box styled on a volume of a bound encyclopedia.
Since its relaunch, the EQT Running Guidance has enjoyed a series of makeovers, contemporized with Primeknit and other modern manufacturing techniques. This time it gets upholstered in luxurious soft suede. The sea-theme ensures this sneaker looks fresh as ever.

Partnering with farmers, Amazonian families, factory workers and marginalized groups, Veja supports communities in South America and France while creating clean designs and comfortable sneakers that prove thoughtful production is possible
Even though the colorway released about three years before the team existed, the original Air Joran 5 in its iconic black, purple, and red version has gotten stuck with the nickname “Raptors” in the years since thanks to its matching look to the original Toronto Raptors team colors. Historically inaccurate, but the “Raptors” name seems to be here for good on the classic Air Jordan 5. Watch out for this shoe dropping September 17th at our Moreland Ave location.
