Problems often spark innovation. But when adidas went out to solve the problem of crushed toe boxes and the impact of drag, we’re tipping they weren’t planning for their creation to be one of the most revolutionary sneakers in history — one that changed and inspired the industry for the next 50+ years. We’re of course talking about the adidas Pro Model, the first-ever leather basketball sneaker, something that remained the primary material of hoop shoes for a further four decades. A Chuck Taylor on steroids — it was so dominant at the time, that it banished the Converse classic from the hardwood — and that’s no mean feat for the long-lived favorite.
Then there’s the influence on fashion and the birth of the low-cut model, the Superstar, which is currently embarking on its 50th anniversary year. So its fitting that adidas is not only bringing back the Low in a big way for 2020, but also the OG that kickstarted it all. And after a slew of release — including the return of the OG black and white colorways — comes it’s most vibrant yet: the adidas Pro Model “Pink Toe”
As the name suggests, the pair is popped with pink Shell-Toes, but it also extends down to the full length of the sole unit, the profile Three Stripes, and the heel panel. The rest of the sneaker is crafted in all-white, including fine details like the rear branding hits and contrast stitching at the toe.
