Finally! I’ve been holding my breath waiting for these ever since Todd James tipped me off to his new collaboration with Pharrell
For the first time, Adidas let artists modify the original Superstar shelltoe sneakers…the ones embedded in hip hop’s DNA ever since Run DMC hit that b-boy stance in the 1980’s. And since Pharrell was the original art-connoisseur hip hop artist…his taste in collaborators on this, the latest in his ongoing partnership with Adidas, is impeccable. From our dear friend Todd James aka REAS, to the twisted Japanese manga-mind of Mr., to photographer Cass Bird, to futurism architect Zaha Hadid…they each got to add their own stamp to the shell of the iconic sneaker toes.
I want every single pair! But especially these REAS joints. Start lining up for the drop on August 7th.

Check out more photos and videos of the Pharrell x Adidas Originals Supershells…

Kendrick Lamar used his first sneaker with Reebok to help bring unity between the two biggest gangs in his hometown of Compton: the Bloods and Crips. He took the classic Ventilator model and gave them a nice off-white suede base with a blue accent on one shoe and a red accent on the other.

The theme is “neutral” and K. dot aims to spread love amongst young gang members in his community and beyond. The TDE x Reebok collabs will drop on July 18 in the States.

kids-8

Supreme is honoring the film that gave the world a glimpse into real downtown skate culture in mid ’90s New York City. The year was 1994, Supreme just opened its doors and rising skaters like Harold Hunter, Peter Bici, Justin Pierce were on the come-up. Then, KIDS was released in the summer of ’95 and nothing was the same. The young cast that included a freash Rosario Dawson, Harold Hunter, Leo Fitzpatrick, Justin Pierce, Chloë Sevigny and more became underground rock stars overnight. Larry Clark and Harmony Korrine’s brutally honest depiction of youth culture at the time became a parent’s worst nightmare. Its impact still resonates to this day.

Hamilton Harrison, who makes a brief cameo in the film, is working on a full length documentary about his deceased friends in the film. Though, he wasn’t a main character in KIDS, he was a real life friend of cast members Harold Hunter (RIP) and Justin Pierce.

BAM is also hosting a 20th anniversary screening of the film and Q&A session in June.
