Surely, when 80's Hip-Hop group RUN DMC rapped about "My Adidas" they weren't referring to "flame wings" and "teddy bear" adorned Adidas sneakers but, then again Jeremy Scott had not come on the scene. Scott is a British Designer who's teamed up with Adidas to create "The Originals" a sneaker collection inspired by his eclectic approach to design. Contrary to popular belief that athletic shoes are getting too much of the Designer treatment. I think these sneakers are pretty dope, rad, awesome, bomb (any other retro slang terms I forgot to include). The only pair I am not fond of are the teddy bear sneakers. I've had too many run-ins with Bubba! Bubba is a very cute, little, dog that belongs to my niece and nephew who's affinity for stuff animals increases each time I visit. I'm pretty sure that if I wore these shoes over to my brother's house Bubba would think I brought over a girlfriend for him to play. Trust me….the end result would be catastrophic, you have not seen the immense havoc he wrecks on plush stuff animals. Anyway, I salute anyone who would rock these sneakers!
(My fave! They have sequins on the side)
