Footwear re-master-er, Helen Kirkum recently connected with adidas and END Clothing to re-imagine adidas’ Alphaedge 4D.
“I worked with some keywords surrounding the Alpha Edge 4D, such as light, comfort, matrix, lattice, stability and controlled energy. This piece aims to exaggerate those concepts,” Kirkum explains. “The Foam and knitted upper emphasises ideas traditionally associated with comfort in footwear, whilst the bespoke lattice made from laces replicates the sole, the complexity of the matrix and versatility of the material. Bringing the sole onto the upper not only highlights the complex beauty of the material but shows its strength and durability by interlocking the lace matrix with the Carbon 4D lattice.” – Helen
