Just when you thought you’d seen it all, you might want to think again and take a look at these bad boys.
Adidas has teamed with Tommy Cash to launch the world’s longest pair of sneakers – and they are like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
If you haven’t heard of Estonian avant-garde rapper TOMM¥ €A$H up until now, he’s a hip-hop artist, renowned for his experimental approaches to art, music and fashion. Whilst not so popular in the UK he has a dedicated following in the balkans, but is hardly a household name.
Today though, Cash is the talk of the streetwear world — the rapper’s absurdist collaboration with adidas Originals on a pair of clown-esque adidas Superstars breaking the sneaker internet.
As you can see, they’re really, really long.
And whilst they might be getting a lot of attention – would anyone actually wear them?
The superstar sneakers are designed as an extension of Cash’s personality, which is clearly pretty extreme. The pair is offered as one white and one black shoe, something that Cash says reflects the ‘Yin and Yang’ of his personality.
“Both the ‘angel’ and the ‘devil’ live in me at the same time — two opposites that are constantly fighting with each other,” Cash said in a statement surrounding the unveiling of the shoes. “So why hide one side of your personality when they can perfectly coexist with each other. Shouldn’t be too good or too bad. Balance is needed. As two opposites of Yin and Yang, forming one whole.
“Yes, these sneakers are different colors,” he continued. “After all, they reflect my mood, which changes every day. And I will proudly wear both versions of the iconic silhouette at the same time.”
The shoes, which are 4 ft long feature small details like Cash’s name laser-engraved into the heel, the model’s iconic shell-toe, and the three stripes stitched into the very middle of the shoes. Each shoe is also reportedly delivered in a custom-made pouch and box.
Fancy buying yourself a pair? You can actually get these shoes via a raffle that’s being held on the adidas app, however they’re super-limited.
