Over the past 18 years ALIFE has formed a clothing label, grown central to the city’s footwear scene, and helped establish a blueprint for the generation of sneaker boutiques that followed. During a similar time frame, Starcow has achieved comparable status in Paris, where since opening in 2001, it has become the store and hangout for the city’s skate and streetwear community. adidas Consortium paired them and together, Alife and Starcow present a suede Gazelle and leather Stan Smith – two style staples stripped right back to the basics. Placed next to each other, the core idea for this pack becomes evident: the execution on one is inverted on the other. Available 07/29/17 in-store & online.
