Gardening 2.0 Adidas

For SS20, adidas presents the return of the Gardening Club, a trail and gardening-inspired capsule that first sowed the seeds of its popularity in the autumn of 2019.

Originally realized under the adidas Consortium banner, a series of new drops maintain the tongue-in-cheek humor, earthy aesthetics and green-fingered functionality of the original Gardening Pack.

The first drop features new iteration of the Response Hoverturf footwear inspired by the trail-running world and designed to work equally well in the soil or the city streets.

The gardening-inspired capsule collection remains a clarion call to all the likeminded ‘avant-gardeners’ out there. It is for those who lovingly nurture lawns, meticulously scatter seeds and rigorously turn-over soil. But as with the original range, these new drops also offer a fresh take on modern outdoors and hiking trends.

The Response Hoverturf exemplifies this, refusing to be shackled by the slow-paced life of a gardener, ready for you to break into a run whenever the call of the great outdoors (or bustling metropolis) becomes too much. It delivers all this through ripstop and mesh uppers, a rubber toe overlay and FORMOTION heel - all rendered in a blacked-out palette, save for the splashes of color that punctuate its ADIPRENE midsole.
