Throwback Thursday

Markus Thaler's 1/1 golden micropacer, which was given to him for his 
40th anniversary at adidas. Thaler was one of the last employees to work 
directly with Adi Dassler, as he had been with the brand since a teenager. 
He kept pushing the boundaries of design, creating some of the most 
iconic silhouettes like the famous ZX line and under his guidance designers 
where constantly encouraged to learn all aspect of footwear manufacturing 
- from traditional methods to technical innovations. 
I took this picture in Tokyo 2016, when I was lucky to spend some time with 
the trefoil icon.
