Estonian rapper TOMM¥ €A$H made the world’s longest Adidas Originals Superstar in his collaboration with the sportswear giant. Speaking to his 848k followers on Instagram, the artist said: “WHEN I TOLD ADIDAS I WANTED TO MAKE THE LONGEST SHOE IN THE WORLD, MANY WERE AMAZING. BUT AFTER 5 MONTHS, HERE WE ARE “.
Here we are. TOMM¥ €A$H wasn’t kidding and teamed up with Adidas Originals for their latest SUPERSTAR ad campaign. The result is a limited edition version that includes an elongated Superstar, similar to a pair of clown shoes. The sneakers feature one foot in white and the other in black.
Although at first glance, the sneakers seem unrecognizable and not very similar to a Superstar, the necessary details of the shoe are all present. We have the clamshell tip like the three stripes that still appear in the center panel center. Leather was used throughout the trainers’ design, while a rubber sole, also finished in black or white depending on the foot, completes the construction of the shoe. Details such as TOMM¥ €A$H’s autograph has been laser engraved by hand in the heel. Simultaneously, the insoles feature a Yin-Yang referencing the black and white color scheme of the sneakers.
Speaking of the collaboration, Cash states: “Both the angel and the devil live in me at the same time, two opposites that are always fighting each other. So why hide one side of your personality when they can perfectly coexist with each other. Balance is needed as two opposites of Yin and Yang, which form a whole. Yes, these sneakers come in different colors. After all, they reflect my mood, which changes every day. And I will proudly wear both versions of the iconic silhouette at the same time. ”
To complete the rapper’s Superstar, there is his packaging. Each shoe is placed in a case decorated with the collaboration logo, TOMM¥ €A$H x Adidas, which in turn comes in an original design box.
