adidas Originals by Originals Jeremy Scott – Fall/Winter 2010 – Penguin Sneaker

By - August 16th, 2010

Jeremy Scott changed the action verbs associated with sneakers– instead of “lace up”, the official lingo is now “suit up”. What do we mean? For his adidas Originals by Originals Fall/Winter 2010 line, Scott suits up a pair of low-top soccer boot inspired sneakers with penguin’s (yes, the arctic bird!) birthday suit– the “tuxedo”. Well, except, the sneaker really is dressed up in a tuxedo, eschews the traditional laces and lace system, and instead, goes even more old-school, replacing everything with a gentlemanly bow-tie, collar, bib and black buttons. The rest of the upper is in a matching black patent leather, nylon mesh and satin-y lining. With these, the bouncers at The Box can no longer complain that your sneakers are not dressy enough–except we are not sure if they will have the sense of humor for Scott’s cheeky attitude.
