adidas Originals | Winter AF 1.3 PK & AF 1.4 PK | Launch Pack

adidas Originals Atric FW17 BY3007 02

Inspired by the unpredictable weather conditions of winter, adidas Originals introduces two new silhouettes this season designed to stand up to whatever the colder season has to offer, without sacrificing visual effect.

First up is the AF 1.3 PK, a high-top silhouette inspired by Germany’s elite tactical police unit, the GSG 9. The shoe blends modern aesthetics with a range of technical elements to create a striking silhouette with practical considerations. The shoe’s full Primeknit upper is structured by coated overlays for waterproofing, reinforced by a weather-resistant lining for protection against the elements. This is strengthened further by an insulation sock-liner and full-length lacing system, finished with embroidered 3-stripes marks and essential branding details. This is then placed atop a rugged hiking outsole for a perfect heavy-duty look.

Accompanying the high-top iteration, the AF 1.4 PK translates this same design ethos into a low-top context. The same construction approach returns through Primeknit with coated overlays and insulation linings atop a hiking outsole, creating a utilitarian winter runner silhouette. Countering the AF 1.3 PK’s pure white palette, the AF 1.4 PK will release in a classic black makeup with contrast white tooling, culminating in a striking dual release that pushes utilitarian footwear design to its furthest reaches yet.

Retail Prices:

AF 1.3 PK:  $200
