In the todays edition of sneakers versus electronic music we have Adidas Originals entering the market.
We’ve been gifted with a shoe that pays homage to acid house, a genre defined by that 303 synth sound that we love and hate at the same time.The shoe attempts to throw back to the classic smiley face imagery with a yellow and black colour way and a classic dad-shoe style.
We’re not completely sold on this one, and saying it’s an acid house shoe almost feels like a bit of a gimmick. It does, however, resemble shoes of that 90s rave culture era, so maybe I just don’t like the shoes themselves!
Check out a video on it below and see for yourself. What do you think, legitimate throwback to acid house, or a bit of a grab at the market?
