END x adidas Consortium Terrex Agravic XT

END collaborations have been quiet with the start of the new year, though the international giant of a retailer is beginning to rev back up with their newest adidas collaboration, reframing the Terrex Agravic XT with an upper of a retro thermochromic finish. Calling back to trends of old, with nostalgia firmly at its core, the kit still stays within the lines of more contemporary toolings upon first glance, utilizing a mostly black construction with typography cobranding in subtlety. Frozen Yellow stripes break up the profile alongside the chaotic mosaic of hues found along the entire outsole, matching the underlying pink shade revealed once the pair has been exposed to heat. Mesh overlays, neoprene unders, and the color-changing TPU all coincide to craft a piece almost too loud for the trail.
