Nivelcrack x Umbro Korea – Summer 2019

Nivelcrack and Umbro Korea have collaborated several times in the past and collaborate once again to produce these bold tops for the summer season. The training range/ lifestyle collection sees monochrome blocks combined with bright green for a typically unique Nivelcrack take on the classic Umbro Double Diamond branding.

A hexagonal graphic sees the iconic logo bouncing all over the layered design with a glowing effect, while the design also hides a deeper, offset diamond look. Very Umbro. Very 90s.

Nivelcrack’s crest appears alongside the more classic Umbro logo across the rest of the collection which comprises hoodies, sweatshirts, tees, and polo shirts. But lets face it, the collection’s highlight is the football jersey and drill top that takes the Double Diamond logo and throws it into a washing machine with a glow stick.

Both existing as brands that create unique pieces and push the boundaries between lifestyle and performance, the coming together of Nivelcrack and Umbro Korea for a full collection is very exciting. The Nivelcrack x Umbro Korea collection will be released on 29 July. 

adidas Drop UltraBoost x Manchester United “Red Rose” Edition

adidas Originals have turned to the past to create this special edition Manchester United “Red Rose” themed UltraBoost trainer in homage to when won their very first FA Cup, 110 years ago. The red rose has special significance because it is the emblem of Lancashire, the county in which Manchester resides.

The first of the club’s twelve FA Cups was lifted in 1909 when they beat Bristol City thanks to a solitary Sandy Turnbull goal, a man that played for both Manchester clubs and made 220 appearances for the Red Devils scoring 90 goals. Sandy tragically died in battle during the First World War in 1915.

The kit which Turnbull wore in that final features the red rose of Lancashire and the red rose is embroidered onto the tongue of the trainer. The trainer is complimented with detailing on the insoles which also host the adidas performance logo and club crest.

The Manchester United adidas UltraBoost “Red Rose” drops on the Adidas website – July 25.
