Japanese label United Arrows & Sons have joined forces with adidas while working closely with up & coming typographer MIKITYPE to release an exclusive collection of both footwear and apparel.
Tokyo-based calligrapher and type designer MIKITYPE has left his mark on the upcoming adidas x United Arrows and Sons NMD City Sock with a customised typeface. The collaboration is given the all black treatment with the exception of the midsole and outsole, which is in white and gum respectively. The words adidas Originals and United Arrow & Sons can be seen in Katakana at 4 places: the midsole block (which says adidas Originals), the midfoot patch on the medial side, the heel tab and the insoles.
The collection has been scheduled for a March 18 pre-release presumably to be at United Arrows & Sons stores, followed by a global launch at select adidas retailers on March 25. You can see the apparel collection and some on feet shots on United Arrows & Sons website here.
