This is the FAC51-Y3, it’s not just an other adidas Y-3 sneaker, this one has real story behind it. Adidas Y-3 is opening a store in Manchester and to celebrate that event they teamed up with The Haçienda, Manchester’s most legendary club which is having its 25th anniversary. The FAC51-Y3 is not really my kind of sneaker, Y-3 has better ones, but I think the design fits the club. The name is just like a record catalog number, FAC51 stands for a record release on Factory Records and Y3 … that’s self-explanatory. The sneaker was a collaboration between Peter Saville, once graphic designer for Factory Records, Ben Kelly, the architect responsible for the interiors of the now legendary club, and Peter Hook, bass player of Joy Division / New Order. The whole package looks amazing, the shoe box resembles the shape of the club’s dancefloor. Of course this is a strictly limited release, only 250 pairs will be available. You’ll have to cough up €500 if you want to lay your hands on these.
I have praised the Y-3 website before, the 360° feature is so well executed! It’s so much fun browsing that I’ve just found a new must have, that Hodded blouson.
I’ve received some interesting comments lately. Apparently someone found out about my sneaker addiction and decided to help me out with this great offer.

Adidas opened the mi Innovation Center in its flagship store in Paris. It’s a space where you can customize your own sport shoes, where did we hear that before. Adidas focuses more on finding the right shoe for you by analyzing your feet and your running style, unlike Nike who’s iD line is more about colors and such.
The whole system looks like something between a CSI lab and Minority Report interfaces. The space was designed by Mutabor, they teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institut for the software. Just watch the video and you’ll see what it’s all about.
