Is Jeremy Scott a bigger draw for adidas than their biggest sports superstars like David Beckham or Derrick Rose? There’s no doubt that J.Scott’s adidas Originals by Originals releases are among the most eye-grabbing designs on the market today, and he’s taken embellishing sneaker silhouettes to a new level. Each of these three has its own type of special extra, be it the tail on the Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals JS Leopard, the removable mercury wings on the original JS Wings in denim, or the built-in kind you get from the JS Wings 2.0, pictured above in the new ‘Air Force Flag’ colorup. Built for the brave, these all have a take-it-or-leave-it appeal, kind of like the essence of the retailers that are now selling them like Chicago’s LDRS1354.
