If you’re going to do a project called the Collectors Project, you’d better be backing that up with some credible participants. Luckily, the team at ADIDAS have more than enough knowledge when it comes to assembling an group of enthusiasts and the line-up for the new Collectors Project is pretty much flawless.

Our friends with the Three Stripes involved five of the most respected and knowledgeable brand advocates to rework their favourite models in the adidas archives for an extremely limited release. Mr. Robert Brooks was a great choice to represent us here in the UK (his choice of the ZX 550 should please many people), as he’s well-renowned for his passion for the brand. Harlem’s DJ Operator EMZ is another strong candidate, and his choice of the Pro Model 80s will be popular with the public as well. Sneakerqueen went with the Rivalry Hi, whilst Mr. Magara and Ralf Tiittanen opted for the Country and Bahamas respectively.

We’ll be watching the project unfold over on the official adidas Originals Tumblr site – and we recommend you do too! In the meantime, check out the launch video below.
