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from a case of osteosarcoma so bad his right leg had to be amputated in 1977, so when you think about these shoes as a historical document of that first coast-to-coast charity run, remember that inside one of them was a ‘fake’ foot.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

adidas originals orion size adidas Originals Orion   Size? Adis Archive Exclusives

It was just about one month ago that Sneaker News brought you word of UK sneaker specialists Size?‘s exclusive run of adidas Originals classic silhouettes straight from ‘Adi’s Archive’.  They’re starting to arrive as you read this, with the adidas Originals Orion being first out the gate with a Fairway and Sunshine combo that we’d most certainly call ‘Oregon Ducks’ if this were a Swooshed release.  The other pair is less easily identifyable though likely more versatile thanks to large sections of grey plus red, navy and white accents atop a gum rubber sole.  The first pair will be out sometime in March, so check back with us for word on their availability, and the Lead grey edition is available now at Size?

It was just about seven years ago that the release of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou had hipsters from all around trying to get their hands on the classic Rom lowtop depicted as part of the seafaring crew’s uniform.  Just goes to show how far adidas Originals has come recently when it comes to the breadth of their classic lineup, and though the Rom remains in the Three Stripes vaults for now, they’re bringing back some even more obscure models to compliment a crisp white and green perforated Rod Laver.  Models like the adidas Originals Malmo, Orion and Kopenhagen are central to continuing the Size?-exclusive ‘Adi’s Archive’ collection into 2012, and you can see a sampling of what’s in store for next year after the jump below.  These are expected online staring in January, so let us know which one(s) you like best and stick with Sneaker News for the release date.
