In 1980, a Canadian humanitarian decided to run across his home country to raise awareness for cancer research.  Fox suffered from a case of osteosarcoma so bad his right leg had to be amputated in 1977, so when you think about these shoes as a historical document of that first coast-to-coast charity run, remember that inside one of them was a ‘fake’ foot.  We use those scare quotes carefully because even if dude’s foot was manmade, his soul reflects the very spirit that makes athletic competition an integral part of the human experience.  The adidas Originals Orion, then, is a tribute not only to Terry Fox’ ‘Marathon of Hope’, but to the determination that makes a man reach back for his brothers even as he struggles forward.  Each of the upcoming colorways are modernized takes on the classic varsity palettes that dominated the original run three-plus decades back, and they’ll arrive at select Three Stripes retailers on June 15th.  via Sneaker Freaker
