After twelve months of globetrotting, the Consortium Tour makes its final stop for some December warmthÊin Downtown Miami. This installment comes courtesy of Shoe Gallery, the family business which has beenÊselling sneakers to Floridians for five decades. Here it collaborates with adidas Consortium to produce a colorful Climacool 1 ÒFlight 305Ó, a model thats has enjoyed a strong renaissance during 2016.

The story begins on Ocean Drive, the long road which runs along the South Beach waterfront, lined withÊthe cityÕs now iconic art deco buildings. Painted in a variety of pastel shades, by day, these buildings areÊarchitecturally striking, but by nightfall - under the illumination of multicolored neon signs Ð colors beginÊto warp and blend into one another..These buildings serve as the inspiration behind Shoe GalleryÕs Climacool 1 colorway. Upon immediateÊobservation they might appear black but in light, and with movement, the shoesÕ stunning effect isÊrevealed. Beneath the dark outer mesh lies a XENO film membrane thats mimics the multifaceted, multi-colored shimmer of snakeskin.

But there is more going on than simple, color-based decisions. Shoe Gallery has a design concept whichÊworks on two levels. The retailer has teamed up with DroneNerds and Miami-based Grammy NomineeÊproducer Cool on this model. The execution is a playful nod towards unmanned flying vehicles with stealthyÊblack bodies accented by the shimmer of their propellers. Shoe Gallery envisions such drones as the futureÊof footwear delivery.

When first released in 2002, the Climacool 1 received popular acclaim for its strong aesthetic andÊlightweight, cutting-edge breathability. Befittingly, in 2016, the adidas Consortium Tour concludes with aÊmodel thats has enjoyed a big comeback year.
On December 29th @6pm Shoe Gallery and Drone Nerds will open a pop up shop in Wynwood to launch theÊsneaker release. Customers will be able to experience Drone technology while purchasing the sneaker.
