First Look: adidas Consortium x Highs and Lows EQT Running Support 93



Highs & Lows of Australia reworked the adidas EQT Support 93 and gave it a jaw-dropping upgrade inspired by the ‘Interceptor’, the beefed-up muscle car featured in the Mad Max franchise. This EQT is based on the muscle cars that rose to cinematic and cultural significance during the 1970s and 1980s. An era where cars were gutted, hybridized and pushed to their performance limits.


Using forged neoprene, waxed sailcloth, aged cowhide and nubuck, Highs and Lows toughens the iconic runner that would fit the rugged desert wasteland battlefield where most of the Mad Max franchise takes place. Flecks of sandy gold are speckled on the midsole, while the gradient effect on the three stripes represents the iconic zoomie exhaust pipes seen on the upgraded Ford Falcon XB Coupe.


The adidas Consortium x Highs and Lows EQT Running Support 93 ‘Interceptor’ will drop on Saturday, 17 December 2016.
