Adidas Originals Animal Sneakers:
Solestruck have recently released an Adidas own and an Adidas x Jeremy Scott range of sneakers.
What they lack in practicality they make up for in edginess. The latest pair by Adidas x Jeremy Scott features a stuffed toy Gorilla wearing an Adidas t-shirt attached to the tongue of the shoe whilst the body of the footwear is covered in a short, plain black fur.
An earlier edition released, which is now sold out on Solestruck, were the Panda sneakers. Similar to the Gorilla silhouette, a stuffed Panda head sporting an Adidas sweatband crowned the tongue, whilst a true to style black and white fur covering was finished with arms attached to each side of the foot-hole.
The quality of the footwear has not been compromised for design; the strong, flexible Adidas rubber soles have been incorporated and the comfortable trainers are shaped to fit. Both editions are lace-ups and are priced at $200 (£130 approx).
I have my doubts that this year’s Olympians will be sporting a pair, or that they will become the new footwear of choice at your local gym. However, when it comes to quirky and unexpected designs; these guys are taking home the gold!
