The vast, barren terrain of the Sahara Desert provides inspiration for END.’s AW16 Adidas Consortium collaboration, dubbed ‘Sahara’. Both the execution and the materials draw their aesthetic from the 3.5 million square miles of undulating sand dunes which sprawl across much of the African continent.

The ZX 700 Boat, a more traditional silhouette, arrives in various shades of desert-camouflage beige, while the material-mix – smooth, natural-shade leather and rough suede – mimics the diverse surfaces found in arid landscapes. The NMD’s deep-green colour, gum sole and geometric, honeycombed upper are references to cacti, one of the few plants capable of growing and thriving in such environments.

The END. x adidas Consortium ‘Sahara’ Pack will release via END. Launches on November 5th at EndClothing.com.
