Third in line for the adidas Consortium Stan Smith collaboration is Japanese high-end streetwear label NBHD, short for NEIGHBORHOOD. Founded in 1994 by Shinsuke Takizawa, the Tokyo-based brand often takes inspiration from motorcycle culture for its apparel collections, and the Stan Smith x NBHD is no exception.

While the Stan Smith collaborative efforts by CLOT and mastermind JAPAN use black as the main colorway, NBHD’s version offers a fresh take with its all-brown leather upper, soft taupe leather lining and cream colored midsole. Takizawa’s love for motorcycle culture is evident in the skull and crossbones logo emblazoned in white on the sneaker’s toe cap and tongue.

The adidas Consortium Stan Smith x NBHD will be available from March 1st at Limited Edt Vault, 313@Somerset, and Limited Edt Chamber, Marina Bay Sands, as well as at No.6 London, No.42 Paris, No.74 Berlin and selected Consortium boutique retailers worldwide.
