Not just your average Superstars: a Jam Master Jay homage on the back, My Adidas printed on the tongue, a phat-gold-chain trinket on the lower lace and no tricks in ’86- the year it all happened for the old skool duo…
The box is just a reminder of how branded their name is to the 3 stripes at a mere 25 years and counting.
I would really hate to wear these out. They are just too commemorative to hit the pavement. But, they would be great for a photo shoot with an ominous boombox in one hand and a peace sign gesture with the other. Where is that damned sheepskin coat!!!
Adidas, YOU ROCK! Thanks for giving us 25 years of a classic, and many respects to the trio of hip-hop that rocked them and transformed hip-hop into what it is today.
NOTE: An honorable mention to Grandmaster Flash and the furious five, but just what is up with those outfits?
