For all the revenue they generate in arena ticket and pay per view sales, not a single professional wrestler has managed to secure a sneaker collaboration.  We’ve seen John Cena rocking Air Jordans and Reebok Pumps plenty of times, but could this new adidas Originals Campus II somehow represent Three Stripes collaboration with The Muppets and connect with another form of entertainment so often enjoyed by unquestioning youths?  That depends on if you know that Canadian ring general Chris Jericho named his heavy metal band ‘Fozzy’ in a lawsuit-avoiding tribute to the Jim Henson character who appears on the lateral ankles of these furry-lined Campus 2s.  This look also brings to mind images of the Dunk Low Pro SB ‘Gibson’ modeled after a guitar case, and if you’re still grappling with the choice of whether to grab a pair, click through for more images before you pick them up from Kids Foot Locker.

It wasn’t too terribly long ago that the phrase ‘cartoon sneakers’ conjured images of bargain-priced velcro-secured tiny kicks for toddlers.  And while everyone loves a good lenticular action scene on the side panels, it’s with some relief that we’ve seen a vast improvement in the execution of these kiddie-themed kicks as the big brands increase their collaborative networks.  The Muppets x adidas Originals AR 2.0 ‘Animal’ recognizes one of Jim Henson’s standout characters with a flashy bred design whose fuzzy lining probably feels something like the puppet whose face is pressed into the tongue.  These can be worn with or without the heavy metal-style studded straps, but your choice to wait on getting these from adidas Originals accounts like Mr. R Sports all but ensures you’ll miss out.

Looks like the Kermit the Frog Superstar IIs won’t be the only collaboration between adidas Originals and Jim Henson’s Muppets. From the crew’s leader to a character introduced as a drummer so wild he had to be chained to his kit, the Disney x adidas Originals AR 2.0 ‘Animal’ applies a playful heavy metal look to a black silhouette thanks to the pyrimidal studs on the signature ankle strap. The adiRise 2 also features drumstick dubraes and lateral heel inscriptions as well as a sunglassed Animal head on the tongue, and they’re available now at select Three Stripes retailers like CitySole.

adidas Originals has offered a few Mickey Mouse-branded collaborations with Disney in recent weeks, and today we move from the brand’s most identifiable character to the leader of a group started outside the Disney empire to which they finally secured the rights in 2004.  Kermit the Frog is undoubtedly the most famous of Jim Henson’s Muppet characters, and this new adidas Originals Superstar II ‘Kermit’ comes in tonal green with an embellished tongue to match KtF’s collar and the current Disney-designed Muppets logo.  Click through to see more, let us know how these rank against the best cartoon collabo kicks and look for the Kermit Superstar IIs at Three Stripes spots like CitySole late next month.
