adidas Originals AO Toss Hi – Black – White – Blue
When we first saw the lowtop version this February, the adidas Originals AO Toss looked more like a cross between the Vans Sk8-Low and a Converse Chuck Taylor Ox. Then somehow, a model with that same name and cap-toed sole came along with an entirely different eyestay and a cleaner silhouette, something on the order of a Nike Blazer Mid AB if the medial zippers were replaced by an elastic gusset. And luckily that’s where the name appears to have stuck, as you can see from this new black, white and soft blue edition that suggests a whole range of simple yet satisfying colorways could be in order. They bear some of the triangular accenting that typified Three Stripes’ ‘Blue’ collection a while back but show how far the brand has come in such a short time with regard to their casual offerings, and they’re available now from Kix-Files.
