Founded in Tokyo in 2006, White Mountaineering is the brand of Japanese designer Yosuke Aizawa. Taking the great outdoors as inspiration, Aizawa and his team use functional, high-performance textiles and design details as a springboard for fashion-forward collections that blur the boundaries between urban and outdoor wear.
To celebrate the launch of the collection, each piece was put through its paces across the vast and rugged trails that span the coastlines of Australia and look out onto rippling blue water similar to the pattern found on the apparel. Directed and photographed by Australian Beau Grealy, the accompanying campaign captures the interplay of human movement and nature that comes when breaking free of the city grind.
For the footwear side of the collection, White Mountaineering offers up unique takes on two classic, contemporary models from the adidas TERREX range. Their version of the TERREX Speed LD is the boldest of the two, with contrasting pops of color on both the toe caps, three stripes and eye-stays. An oversized White Mountaineering logo on the heel, rendered in reflective materials, ensures that whether running on urban trails or further afield, the wearer will catch the eye.

The second pair in the collection is a more understated take on the TERREX Agravic Boa, a model with added stability and protection, built more for durability than the lightweight TERREX Speed LD. It features a unique fit system for micro-adjustments and a secure, consistent hold. Like the TERREX Speed LD, it also features Continental rubber on the outsole for maximum grip. For the White Mountaineering version, the TERREX Agravic Boa is presented in a completely blacked-out colorway, save for the distinctive blue accenting on the toe, midsole and heel.
