Then you had your casual shoes like K-Swiss and you had your cool shoes like Vans with your shorts. That was that whole sneaker generation.


ÿþClick through to get adidas superstars a better look, let us know how these compare to Kazuki's other reworked Three Stripes classics and stick with Sneaker News for word on the US release.  via FreshnessThe latest in Japanese designer Kazuki Kuraishi's ongoing collaboration with adidas Originals are the two kicks pictured above. On the left in black and purple, is the MT Boot 2 Leather. It certainly looks rugged with a chunky midsole, but boot is a bit of a stretch. To its right in white and green is the Gipfel Leather, which is somewhere between a runner and a basketball sneaker, plus the metallic hooks you might expect to find on a hiking boot. Both of these will drop at select adidas Originals retailers in March.

Perhaps that's why the pairing between K-Dot and the 55 seems to work the more you look at it.The upper is easily recognizable for its marble surface, with inverted colors providing a stark contrast via a longitudinal seam covered by an exterior ribbon. The over-sized Swoosh logo remains, but via a transparent overlay that is rather difficult to zero in adidas boost on against the white marble. There is, however, a miniature Swoosh in black placed at the fore-foot. The structural integrity of the midsole remains, but some visual toppings via a speckle print and the black marble detailing appears on the traction rivets.

Whether it be symbolism or an outright text layout, there exists no specific call-out to Kendrick Lamar, although the design adidas spezial concept surely has a connection to the award-winning musician.Keyshawn: I would say it was probably more as a teenager. As a little kid, it was hard to afford many pairs of shoes. And then when I became a teenager, that's when the tennis shoe world, in terms of basketball and sports, was taking off. You obviously had the original Shell Toes with Run DMC. You had the Air Jordans that would come out. Then you had your casual shoes like K-Swiss and you had your cool shoes like Vans with your shorts. That was that whole sneaker generation.

In tennis, Agassi and some other guys had their own signature shoe. So as you continue to go through the process of college, you realize that adidas los angeles this might really be an opportunity.Keyshawn:  It was interesting. When you first saw the shoe and the mold of the bottom of it, you were like  this doesn't look like my foot, it's not gonna fit right. And then all of a sudden, you put it on and it's molded to your feet and it's like  Okay, I get it now! I thought it was an excellent technology. I trained in them. I actually played games in them. It was a training shoe that you could actually wear in any environment, whether you were going to a club, or out to dinner with a pair of jeans on.

Among the most notable, overseas sneaker boutique Kicks Lab has been fostering this relationship for quite some time, dating back to 2015 with their "PHYS ED" themes. Their latest is more so of the same imagination as they take the GEL-Lyte V and give it a luxe makeover in interpretation of the term "Kogane," which roughly translates to "gold." This connection is most apparent along the Tiger Stripe modifications as well as the branded emblems at the heel: each, in contrast to the mostly neutral backdrop, bear a foil-like texture with the titular metal adorning it with a taste of the expensive. Mesh and suede materials contrast through a mostly dark visage, opting for black towards the forefoot and brown along the rear, an earth tone that sees to just part of the midsole, the entire sock liner, and much of the lace unit.

Drawing inspiration from the Ultra Boost Mid "Aspen"  one of the adidas eqt most popular UBs of 2016  the shoe features a slightly lighter and less structured version of the multi-colored Primeknit upper that appeared on the original "Aspen" Ultra Boosts. The Futurecraft midsole is dressed in its signature light green colorway, and small details are provided by the branded burgundy heel and collar tabs. First seen backstage at Ronnie Fieg  s "Kith Park" fashion show, there's no official release date for these special Futurecrafts yet, but look for them to drop later this fall or winter and check out adidas eqt our Sneaker Release Dates page for updates as our Sneaker Release Dates page for updates as they're available.
