adidas Originals Highrise Sneakers: Grey
adidas Originals Highrise Sneakers: Grey

I have no shame in admitting that there is a special place in my heart for adidas. Every since Walk This Way, I have been based against any other shoe. So with that said, it is my pleasure to bring you some fire by way of the adidas Originals Highrise Sneaker.

As with most models in the adidas line, it is the small things that make this shoe a beauty. Drawing from the more classic stylings of premium footwear while still maintaining a street wear aesthetic will keep this shoe on the hot list for a long while to come. At first glance, you notice the premium leather upper that has been enhanced by a snake emboss that continues throughout the toe box, mid-panel, ankle collar and heel. The signature 3-stripes are represented through perforated strips in the mid-panel that match the perforations of the velcro straps on the heel and ankle. Finally, the adidas logo and Trefoil is lightly embossed on the ankle above the sole and on the tongue.

Look for these in January 2010, at all adidas Originals stores and select retailers. If you are in the UK, France, Germany or The Netherlands, they are available now at Shop.adidas.com. [via HB]
