The adidas Originals By Jeremy Scott Spring 2012 Collection Features A Sneaker With A Tail
If you haven’t noticed by now, Jeremy Scott isn’t afraid to take chances when it comes to designing sneakers for adidas. In the past, he’s put everything from gigantic wings to extra tongues on the sneakers that’s he designed for the Three Stripes. So it should come as no surprise that the adidas Originals By Jeremy Scott Spring 2012 collection is extra kooky, extra daring, and, well, extra weird.
The wings are back on a couple of dope pairs of sneakers from the collection. There’s a pair of boots that look like they belong on a stylish cowboy. There’s a pair of sneakers that feature a tail on the back. There’s a low-top that looks like something Joe Pesci might have worn in Casino. And the pink combat boots with the locks all over them? Yikes (in a good way!). Your man has definitely gone off the deep end with a few of these designs. Following the success he’s had with adidas, it appears as though they gave him complete creative control and told him to go wild. And that’s exactly what he did.
We have to ask, though: What do you think about these sneakers? We wouldn’t get caught rocking most of these, but we also don’t completely hate any of them. In fact, if we saw someone wearing any of these, we’d give them major props for doing so. These are just strange enough to get a double take—without being so strange that they look like something only Kanye West or someone like that could pull off. So props to Jeremy for coming through in the clutch again. And props to adidas for allowing him to do so. It’s gonna get real interesting out on these streets when folks start pulling these sneaks out of the closet this spring. And we can’t wait to see it.
