When Adidas launched their first collection with the whimsical designer back in 2008, the partnership was an instant sensation. The very point of Adidas Originals is for the brand to team up with friends and let their freak flag fly, so who better to add a boost of eccentricity to Adidas classics than the lovable quirkmeister himself, Jeremy Scott?! Since then we’ve seen his winged high tops on everyone from Lil Wayne to Blue Ivy to maybe even your sassy grandmother. And count Rebel Wilson as a fan of his more cuddly creations— she recently wore his Pink Poodles on Letterman. What we’re getting at here is that people love the Adidas x Jeremy Scott collections, and they’ve been crazy bestsellers for the brand. Because wings on shoes, that’s why.
And GUESS WAT. Homie’s got an updated Adidas collabo on the way, and his documented love for the ’90s does not appear to falter. A first look reveals these 8-bit JS Wings 2.0 “Pixels” with the classic three stripe black and white colorway— nearly identical to the JS Wing 2.0 design, but if those had been worn by Jimmy in Double Dragon. Simple and brilliant. Considering Scott’s affinity for low-fi, we’re pumped to see what he’s got up his sleeves for the upcoming Adidas collection. So far we’ve only heard that it will drop “sometime later this year,” which is just vague enough to leave us sex-shoe-ally frustrated but eager to hear more.
