Run DMC will forever be a part of adidas history. The rap group single-handedly lifted the Three Stripes to a sneaker powerhouse. Run DMC made the adidas Superstar what it is today, a cultural phenomenon. As a sign of continued respect, adidas plans on releasing another sneaker that pays homage to the late Jam Master Jay, in the form of an adidas Pro Model.

The Pro Model paying homage to Jam Master Jay were debuted by Shake, who happens to be a close friend of Jay. Shake is known to be the first to release and debut memerobilia that surrounds the late great Jam Master Jay. The Pro Model is seen in a white leather upper with “Jay” appearing on the heel of the shoe in gold lettering. The rest of the sneakers stay true to form. If you’re looking to get a par of these, you’re probably going to have a hard time doing so being that the sneaker is said to not see a general release and was only meant to be made for Shake and DMC.

¬†Author’s Take

Great sign of respect on behalf of adidas. My only complaint is that it won’t be available to the public. Make it happen adidas, we’d love to own a pair!
