Jeremy Lin and Gareth Bale star in the Adidas Climachill “Uncontrol Yourself” campaign

As warmer weather inches towards us, adidas is set to cover all athletes with protective, breathable layers for warm weather. Incorporating direct insights from premier players like Gareth Bale and Jeremy Lin as well as its own Future Sport Science lab, adidas debuts the re-designed Climachill apparel line.

For shirts, the Climachill shirts are equipped with industry-leading 3D aluminum cooling spheres that provide a chilling sensation on contact to the warmest areas of the body. The line is also designed with SubZero flat yarn, which is woven with titanium to molds to the body’s form and transfer an increased amount of heat away from the body.

The campaign for Climachill launches with the above video, which finds everyday athletes channeling their inner superstars in heated situations. Check out the video above and head to adidas’ site to peruse the collection.

INVINCIBLE (Taiwan) collaborates with LOSERS (Japan) with “Camoyama” Sneaker

Taiwan’s iconic streetwear retail space INVINCIBLE has teamed up with Japanese label LOSERS on a pair of sneakers, dubbed the “Camoyama.” The name is derived from combining the word camouflage with ”yama,” which means mountain in Japanese. Based off of LOSERS’ renowned SCHOOLER Classic High signature silhouette, the Camo Mountain sneaker is covered in a camouflage print, with a graphic overlay of Taiwan’s altitude map in reflective 3M, contrasting against an orange heel tab and tongue. The rubber soles and toecap sees an army green stripe run through, for a graphic pop complementing the design.

The aeronautic-inspired design will be available at INVINCIBLE East, beginning today.
