For everyone out there saying Jeremy Scott couldn’t make a sneaker that wasn’t all-out wacky here you go: a pair that keeps the blocking simple with a blackout look. Did we mention it’s fuzzy and there’s a gorilla hanging off the top end? Ok we take it back, these aren’t exactly subdued what with King Kong hanging out of the tongue up there, but is a subdued sneaker really what you’re after from Mr. Scott? We didn’t think so. His latest beastly pair from the ongoing Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals team-up is almost here, with a Saturday, March 3rd release date. Stay with us after the jump to see the close up shots of this monkey business and let us know if you’ll be copping the adidas JS Gorilla from spots like Social Status this Saturday.

Complex pairing up and coming rapper ASAP Rocky with Jeremy Scott’s adidas Originals by Originals capsule was a natural fit not just because both bring a unique sensibility to their street-level craft, but also the ”Clothes get weirder/Money get longer” connection. Put simply, there’s nobody doing it like J.Scott in the sneaker game today, and he continues to kill it with the courageous fashion forward set. His latest Three Stripes collabo an evolution of a concept he’s executed several times before and one that might be his single most endearing effort to date. The Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals JS Gorilla gives you not one but two different smiles (which look like they’re adjustable) along with four thumbs up, a shoe so cute and positive in its mood that they’ve got to be one of the most high-energy blackout colorways in history. Let us know what you think about these crazies and stick with Sneaker News for word on the US drop in the coming months. via Styles
