The neverending quest for intentional irony and kitsch brought the classic saddle shoe back into the hipster wardrobe in recent years. Other than pairing them with a gorgeous scene chick, how could you ever possibly make this design even cooler? How about letting UNDEFEATED’s James Bond and global soccer superstar David Beckham integrate the classic design with a Superstar shelltoe to create the adidas Originals Superstar Saddle DB. These joints are like going back in time, subtly altering the past and returning to your contemporary age seeing the wires of history have been crossed. And while the Polo Grounds have been gone for over 45 years, it seems fitting that this pair comes in a New York-oriented colorway, and whether you’re in Hollis, Queens or Newcastle upon Tyne, they’re ready for the taking from Caliroots.
