Though Def Jam has had adidas create some shoes to honor their success and 25th anniversary, the record label powerhouse has also produced some to pay respect to some of their staple artists who have not only help build the company itself, but have created legendary names of their own. Here an adidas Superstar II for the likes of Def Jam’s funny man and super MC, Redman. Featuring a rather vibrant red suede upper and speckled sole, the shoe design is made to resemble his breakthrough album, “Whut? Thee Album.” Additionally, a portrait of is found on the tongue, and the typical branding on the back of the midsole and the heel tab is respectively replaced with “Redman” and his other moniker, “Funk Doc.” To top things off, the pair comes with a second pair of infrared type colored laces, just in case the radiance of the upper itself wasn’t loud enough. Along with these Superstars, adidas has also manufactured a tshirt that also features Def Jam and Redman branding, as well as nods to his album. Executing just as hard as one of Redman’s punchlines, these can be found at select adidas retailers like Extra Butter.
