At adidas Originals, we come across many talented creative ladies and have been lucky enough to collaborate with some of them.

For Consortium’s SS12 collection – Originals’ premium range of sneakers – we asked nine creative partners to interpret their Olympic memories on a selection of classic adidas kicks. Three of the partners were girls: photographer Shaniqwa Jarvis, graphic designer Kate Moross and menswear designer Kara Messina.

Shaniqwa, who switches her time from LA to NYC and London, infused memories of her childhood swim team on her ZX 500 – check out her awesome rendition! Her sneaker was released last Saturday and is available in select adidas Originals and premium partner stores.
