Adidas Releases Limited Edition All Blacks Shoes

Adidas Releases "All Heroes"

Adidas have teamed up with designer Frank Liew (founder of Qubic Store) an All Blacks limited edition Original Campus 80's sneakers. Four All Blacks legends were chosen to represent the "All Heroes" and brought to life by New Zealand illustrator Elliot F. Stewart. A very simple, understated design is sure to be a hit with collector's, with only 100 pairs being released.

"everyone here understands the cultural importance of the All Blacks team in terms of New Zealand's identity... after all, there's a reason why most here consider Black as our national colour... we wanted to create something that celebrated our team & national identity without compromising their legacy and image."
~ Frank Liew, Qubic Store
