Allow me: The longest (!) Shoe in the world and 19 other bizarre kicks
Adidas has announced a sneaker collaboration with Estonian rapper Tommy Cash, which is generating incredulous looks on social media. But don’t worry, the extravagant specimen is of course not alone.
The sporting goods manufacturer is a big fish in the sneaker market. Like their big competitor Nike, they repeatedly rely on collaborations with athletes and, above all, musicians in order to professionally pick up the target group. For example, recent collaborations with Beyoncé or Pharrell Williams.
Now this portfolio has been expanded to include the Estonian rapper Tommy Cash (aka TOMM ¥ € A $ H), who also sees himself as a concept artist.
To be found in the middle:
Anyone who knows his music and / or follows his Instagram channel already suspects that the collaboration with Adidas is likely to be found on the more extravagant edge of the fashion spectrum. As it turns out, even at the very edge …
“WHEN I TOLD ADIDAS THAT I WANT TO MAKE THE LONGEST SHOE IN THE WORLD AS A PART OF OUR COOPERATION, THEY REACTED ‘WHAT THE HELL, TOMMY’. BUT 5 MONTHS LATER IT’S SO FAR. “
Allegedly a few copies are actually to be produced and raffled. However, they are unlikely to be found in large quantities in stores. Much rather a version more suitable for the masses, if you can believe the post on the Russian Instagram profile of Adidas.
While this should have been a more or less successful marketing gag, other shoe designs are actually meant seriously. And only slightly more bizarre …
The idea doesn’t seem that new …
