With an uncompromising design that marries function and aesthetic like never before, adidas Originals presents a new footwear silhouette for Fall Winter 2014 - the Tubular. Born from some of the brand’s most creative minds, the Tubular echoes the fearlessness found in the world of sports and channels this directness into a bold new silhouette that is as streamlined, as it is headstrong.
The Tubular’s namesake is its unique outsole design, inspired by inner tire tubes, which features dual-density EVA for unbeatable comfort. Partnered with stabilizing plates, the Tubular supports the wearer with a firm stance, whilst sacrifices nothing in the way of aesthetic. A sock-fit neoprene upper continues the contemporary street look and features printed overlays that provide additional support.
Tubular embodies the creative, pioneering philosophy of adidas Originals. Refined, responsive and deeply considered, it’s a bold new take on progressive sneaker design that’s instinctive to the brand with the 3-stripes.
The black and blue Tubular will release in W.W Copenhagen for men and women Friday November 21st.
Celebrating the history of the iconic sportswear brand, Adidas Originals' Consortium has jonined forces with illustrator Peter O’Toole and adidas aficionado Quote. The project marries the duo’s passion for adidas’ sneakers, as a treasure trove of archival knowledge is brought to life by O’Toole’s distinctive illustrations. While O’Toole worked on the book’s illustrations, Quote waxed lyrical on the historic importance and design innovations of each model, creating a vibrant book that should appeal to longtime fans and the recently converted alike.
The Quotoole Project will launch for sale in W.W. Copenhagen and W.W. Annex Saturday 15th at opening hours and online the 15th at 00:01.

The result is a clean dark navy and white sneaker with leather Swoosh and textured upper.
We are excited to announce that our long-time friends and collaborators Kenton Slash Demon have created a mix for the Wood Wood Muzak series. Jonas Kenton and Silas Moldenhawer have been making their crispy house since 2006 and we are very happy to welcome them as contributors to the Muzak series. Both guys are also part of the the award winning Danish electro-pop band When Saints Go Machine together with Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild and Simon Muschinsky.
KSD made original music for our A/W 2014 show and ensured a great show. Being big fans of KSD here at W.W. it was only natural for us to approach Jonas and Silas and we were very happy that they were up for it. Their interpretation of the theme of the collection resulted in a fantastic vibe at the show with the groovy high-energy and organic sound of KSD.
With their contribution to the Muzak series the circle is complete. We managed to get catch up with Silas and do a little Q&A corresponding to the launch of their Muzak mix. Check it below.
We imagine you guys most be crazy busy looking after 2 very successful bands. How does making music in 2 bands together influence your work as KSD?
It’s difficult to say but maybe it helps our idea process. We always try to take the music in new directions when we start working on a new project and try to go about the production and songwriting in ways we haven’t tried before.
What is your musical backgrounds and how did you guys meet and start working together?
Jonas and I grew up together up in the same neighborhood, so we’ve known each other most of our lives. When we were about 15 years old we became really interested in electronic music and at some point we tried to make our own tracks. In the beginning it was mostly club music but later on we started to listen to more alternative and weird stuff. I been playing the drums since I was four and I remember Jonas took some piano lessons when he was younger. For both of us it was the production side that drew us in and the reason we got into music.
How is your working process and roles in KSD?
We kind of have the same way of working so often we work by ourselves, especially when we’re starting out a track. But when we’re finishing something we always do it together. Even though we kind of have the same way of working we seem to focus on different aspects of a track so that’s why we always finish it together.
What are the plans for the future with KSD?
It’s been so long since we’ve released anything so we’re really excited about finally getting some new music out there soon. We’ve just been making new music for over two years now and been trying out weird ideas and been experimenting a lot with different styles and genres. We’ve also been working on a live setup that we’re really excited to show people.

The Good Will Out (TGWO) x ASICS GEL-LYTE V 'Koyo' is inspired by the colour of the Japanese autumn leaves. Koyo is to the Japanese autumn what cherry blossoms (Sakura) are to spring. The viewing of the leaves (Momijigari) is a popular activity in Japan for centuries. The Koyo season starts in mid September on the northern island of Hakkaido and then moves to the south. Famous Koyo spots are Tohoku, Tokyo and Kyoto. Some trees around Tokyo and Kyoto remain colourful till early December.
The Koyo design uses three shades of dark red standing for the many red tones of the autumn leaves. Another colour is bright yellow, which originates from the yellow edges seen on fallen leaves.
The red upper is made of premium nubuck leather. The heel features a structured leather panel with the haptic quality of a leave. The sockliner has a soft all-over-leave-print. It comes with 3 pairs of extra laces.
Available in Wood Wood Copenhagen now.
Tomorrow Wednesday October 22nd we will celebrate the launch of the Disney & Wood Wood collaboration at Colette in Paris. Join us from 5-6:30 on 213 rue Saint-Honoré.
Mirroring Jun Takahashi’s progressively more serious approach to running, this collection exponentially combines top Nike Running and Research Lab innovations with the designer’s athletic insights — insights that could only come from a Tokyo runner and only from a designer of Takahashi’s rare caliber. The results—which were rigorously tested by Takahashi and his GIRA running crew—signify a revolutionary rethinking of the modern running uniform.
The Nike x Undercover Gyakusou Holiday 2014 collection will release in Wood Wood Berlin, Aarhus and Copenhagen Thursday October 23rd.
Asics has entered into a collaboration with American specialty boutique Commonwealth to produce a special edition of the Gel Lyte V silhouette called ‘The Gemini.’
Inspired by the Gemini constellation which represents a pair of twins, these sneakers mirror each other in design but are opposites in terms of materials. Which is to say, where there is leather paneling on one shoe, there is suede on the other, and vice versa
Although the left and right shoe of the “Gemini” look identical at first glance, here you can better notice the mismatched sections of full-grain leather and nubuck suede. These subtle design details were implemented into the release in an effort to encourage people to be creative and celebrate individuality.
The Asics x Commonwealth Gel Lyte V 'The Gemini' will release in Wood Wood Copenhagen Saturday October 18th in limited quantities.
The third and final installment of Riccardo Tisci’s collaboration with Nike Sportswear will release in Wood Wood Copenhagen tomorrow October 16th. This third iteration of the Air Force 1 RT comes in a beige base, with the signature ribboned detailing taking on grey, black, and white accents.
The AF1 Low and Mid will be available in W.W. Copenhagen tomorrow when the store opens at 10:30.
