Though the Kanye fiasco has certainly had an impact on adidas’ bottom line, YEEZY isn’t their only marquee partnership in the entertainment industry, with Beyonce’s IVY PARK one of the biggest under the Three Stripe umbrella. Though her collections certainly don’t make the waves Kanye did within the ‘sneakerhead’ schene, Bey’s most definitely got a wider reach, enticing new fans into the footwear space — a big plus for adidas. As part of that introduction, adidas and Beyonce will educate the newcomers with a release of an IVY PARK x adidas Top Ten 2000, a reinterpreted release of a retro hoops shoe made famous by the late, great Kobe Bryant.
Staying true to previous IVY PARK x adidas releases, the pair leans on earthy tans, creams, and beiges, this time proffering accents of piercing orange underfoot. It’s boot-inspired laces feature the striking hue, too. Construction-wise, the pair dismisses its typical materials _ and even modifies the overlay designs — and delivers the pair in premium leather and suede throughout.
