Limited Edt and adidas Consortium teams up to deliver its innovative take on the adidas Equipment (EQT) Race Walk. This collaboration was inspired by the F1 Night Race of the Singapore Grand Prix, which takes over the city after dark. The ever-growing supercar culture was chosen to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of adidas Equipment (EQT) under the “Life Needs Equipment” project.
Similar to the luxurious interiors of supercars, the shoe features a matte black nubuck upper, premium polished leather stripes and reflective details. To complete it, the glow-in-the-dark piping takes inspiration from the aggressive angles of the modern-day supercar. The result is a sleek modern take on a retro classic that will take you from day to night in a flash. The Limited Edt x adidas Consortium EQT Race Walk is limited to only 500 pairs worldwide, making this exclusive pair worthy of any collection.
Each pair of the Limited Edt x adidas Consortium EQT Race Walk will come with an extra set of laces with reflective details and a lanyard with a serialised Access Pass (001 to 500) reminiscent of the F1 Paddock passes.
The Access Pass has a QR code which gives you access to everything you need to know about this project. It also includes interviews and a host of privileges like vouchers and goodies at various sports, lifestyle and entertainment venues. This all exceeds the retail price of the shoe. For the people who purchase their pairs early on the release day, another extra bonus will be an adidas Life Needs Equipment coffee table book that chronicles the history of this line and features the works of all 12 collaborative pairs with adidas Consortium partners.
From the 25th of October to the 7th of November, the Limited Edt x adidas Consortium EQT Race Walk will be available at the Limited Edt Needs Equipment pop-up at Peninsula Shopping Complex. The pop-up store, under the pseudonym of “LE Sporting Goods,” mimics a nostalgic sporting goods store in the 90s. This is a subtle nod to Limited Edt’s parent company Weston Corporation which was founded in 1949. They have been a stalwart of Peninsula Shopping Complex; a mall which perhaps enjoyed its heyday back in the early 90s with its eclectic variety of stores.
The adidas EQT line was introduced in 1991. It represented the pinnacle of adidas performance products. For the 30th anniversary of adidas Equipment (EQT) under the “Life Needs Equipment” project, 12 global retailers were tasked to give their take on iconic EQT models: CSG 91, Running Support 93, Prototype and Race Walk.
Limited Edt is honoured to pay tribute to an important era in the history of adidas. A wealth of stories and understanding of the significance of the adidas EQT line can be found on lifeneedsequipment.com.
The Limited Edt x adidas Consortium EQT Race Walk will be available exclusively at Limited Edt Needs Equipment pop-up (Peninsula Shopping Complex), selected Limited Edt stores and limitededt.com on Monday, 25th of October at 7PM SGT.
