ADIDAS CLASSICS WEEK

In just a short span of four years, the Jeremy Scott for adidas Originals series has managed to wedge itself some room in the crowded sneaker scene. It’s been established as the eccentric footwear option for those looking for some variation from their Foamposites and Air Jordans, offering crazy ideas like the ‘Teddy Bear’ and ‘Wings’, but where did it all start? For the final Classics Revisited of this week, we’re focusing on the first series collection of Jeremy Scott x adidas, which features the original JS Wings, Metro Attitude Hi, and Artillery Hi. The latter two were known for its gaudy colorways and materials and particularly the oversized Tre-Foil tongue, but its undeniably the Jeremy Scott Wings that set the collection to an uncharted plateau of footwear design concepts. The original Wings sprouted the Wings 2.0, a safari of stuffed-animal models, and a slew of other unconventional designs, paving the way for a generation-defining footwear line that has no signs of slowing down. Re-live the original Jeremy Scott for adidas Originals collection below and let us know what you think is in store for the future of the JS x adidas line!

adidas superstar adi dassler 3 Classics Revisited: adidas Superstar Vintage V Adi Dassler (2005)

ADIDAS CLASSICS WEEK

Don’t blame us – we had to double dip. The adidas Superstar35 Project of 2004 is just too awesome to not give it more props, so we’ve decided to limit ourselves to just two of those releases. Of course, yesterday we showed you the NBHD x adidas Superstar, but here’s a look at fellow adidas Superstar35 Consortium series member – the Adi Dassler. Not that he needs much of an introduction, but Adi Dassler is the founder of this amazing brand, so when celebrating any sort of milestone of the trefoil, Dassler deserves any bit of appreciation he can get. Made with pristine white leather uppers, a faded white rubber toe and outsole, and the signature black Adi Dassler portrait on the heel, tthis particular pair was limited to just 700 units and to this enjoys its role as one of the toughest adidas pick-ups around. Take a look below and fill yourself in on some adidas Classics Revisited history!

nbhd adidas superstar1 Classics Revisited: Neighborhood x adidas Originals Consortium Superstar (2005)

ADIDAS CLASSICS WEEK

In 2004, adidas Originals celebrated the milestone 35th Anniversary of the adidas Superstar – a sneaker that is undoubtedly one of the most iconic sneakers in the history of the genre. Up there with the Chuck Taylor and the Air Jordan 1, the Superstar was at the helm of a rebellious movement that combined sport, street culture, hip-hop, dance, and anything that was seemingly against the quite norm. For the 35th Anniversary, adidas embarked upon the adidas Superstar35 Project – a collection of thirty-five Superstars categorized into five categories. Part of the Consortium series was Japan-based Neighborhood, who re-built the classic Superstar with premium materials in a no-frills tonal-black appeal and a yellowed sole. The Consortium Series of the entire Superstar35 project were incredibly tough to obtain, as they were released on New Year’s Eve, and even compared to the 34 other designs of the set, NBHD’s design stood at the top of the heap. More of this adidas icon just ahead, so take a look and stay tuned for more adidas Classics Revisited features throughout the remainder of the week.

adidas oddity questar Classics Revisited: adidas Oddity Series (2005)

ADIDAS CLASSICS WEEK

Since June of 2008, adidas received a healthy boost of off-the-wall streetwear notoriety with the launch of the Jeremy Scott for adidas Collection. Recognized primarily for the outrageous add-ons of wings and stuffed animals, Jeremy Scott put adidas Originals back on the map thanks to these cracked out designs, but Scott wasn’t the first to attempt an energetic revitalization of adidas’ most prized models. Just a few years back, in 2005, adidas Originals quietly launched the adidas Oddity Series – a small capsule of four Originals colored up in some of the most outrageously out-of-bounds colorways ever put forth by the three stripes label. The four models were the adidas Questar, Rising Star, ZX800, and the lesser known adidas Handball 5 Plug, and were released at select adidas retailers in the U.S. and in Europe. While the Oddity Series continued to exist several years after the original ’05 set, none are as coveted as the four listed here, so check out these worthy inclusions of our Classics Revisited series below and let us know if you’ve got a pair in your stash!

Classics Revisited: IRAK x adidas Rmx EQT Support Runner (2007)

adidas irak 2007 Classics Revisited: IRAK x adidas Rmx EQT Support Runner (2007)

ADIDAS CLASSICS WEEK

The last several weeks of Classics Revisited were all about the most prized Nike relics of our generation, but adidas deserves just as much mention as its competing brand. We’ll go ahead and state the obvious and say that adidas has a lot of ground to cover in the American lifestyle/streetwear scene, but the next five adidas shoes we’re laying out this week have as much clout as any other shoe we put front-and-center for Classics Revisited. We might as well set the bar high and kick things off with what might be one of the best sneaker collaborations of 2007 – the IRAK x adidas EQT.

IRAK is a notorious group of NYC-based graffiti artists known primarily for shoplifting (yes, shoplifting) outside of graffiti. Started by Earsnot in 1997, IRAK boasts around 50 members and roughly¬† ten years later, IRAK released its own line of products (mostly tees and the like) with famous slogans like ‘Shoplifting is not a crime’. Through some connections with NYC-based retailers, IRAK hooked up with adidas and got to play around with EQT Remix, devising two colorways and topping both off with some of the most aggressive branding ever – a rather lumpy ‘IRAK’ embroidery at the very front of the shoe. Two versions were released (IRAK 2007 and 2008) in limited quantity at $200 a pop. More of the IRAK x adidas EQT right ahead, so take a look and stay tuned for more adidas Classics this week!
