Operator Emz Talks Working On The Adidas Collectors Project

Five dedicated collectors from around the world came together for the Adidas Collectors Project. The collective made up of Ralf Tiittanen, Robert Brooks, Mr. Magara, Operator Emz, and Sneakerqueen collaborated with Adidas Originals’ design team to explore the brands legendary archive, reworking their favorite model for an exclusive and limited release. Operator Emz brings us into his world showing us how his passion and influences all tie together. The Harlem based DJ pays to homage hip hop and its roots with his Mobile Mondays series, and his appreciation for Adidas with his customization of the Pro Model 80. When we asked about his experience and  involvement with the project, Operator Emz stated:

The trip was amazing ! It was a dream come true for an Adidas fan, and I’ve been one since 1981. I gained a great deal of respect for the design team after the visit . They really put in a lot of work to make these ideas come to life! Once I’m done with the one and twos , I think that’s where I wanna be … on the design team for Adidas Originals.

You can peep Operator Emz and his his other three striped peers in the video below.

Join us tonight to celebrate the launch of Operator EMZ new release at Ms. Lily’s from 7-9 p.m. and afterwards for Mobile Mondays at The Bowery Electric.
