These are a very tasteful take on the ‘Americana’ silhouette from the Seventies back catalogue of adidas. Originally a basketball boot this low profile version was presumably made for the skate-kids or maybe even tennis players back then. Or perhaps some ballers had super strong ankles and just didn’t need a boot. I don’t know much about sport but I do know an absolutely killer pair of trainers when I see them. That red line, that suede to-box and that font all combine their aesthetic forces to deliver a shoe that looks like it was made specifically for a Wes Anderson film.
