Having worked with us since 2005 on numerous artist series prints, co-labs and technical jacket projects, C-Law aka Chris Law of Crooked Tongues, Unorthodox Styles and adidas Originals fame, finally joined the Addict crew full time in July 2010 on his return to the UK. C-Law spent the last 3 and a half years in Portland OR as lead designer for adidas Originals where he created footwear designs, materials and colour for global and regional ‘Originals’ products, including O by O, Undftd & Beckham, artist packs with Mark Gonzales, Aaron Horkey, Micheal Sieben and Dennis McNett as well as ltd editions for House of Pain, Redman, Def Jam and Snoop Dogg to name but a few.
As co-author and designer of the iconic reference book 'Sneakers – The Ultimate Collectors Guide' published by Thames & Hudson, and with an ever increasing personal collection of definitive trainers last clocked at over 500 pairs, the C-Law knowledge and understanding of trainer culture and style is well respected within both sneaker industry and shoe collector communities alike. 'Bringing a strong British design aesthetic with a twist' is how he describes the AW11 Addict footwear line.'Classic, timeless styles that won’t date, easy to wear dressed up or down.' C-Law.
