First introduced between 1974 and 1978, the adidas Half-Shell, very much like today's P.E., were only available to pro/collegiate basketball players. A derivative of the adidas Superstar, designers "halved" the shell toe portion to provide greater flexibility, without eliminating protection and comfort. Now, nearly 40 years later, adidas Originals will finally debut its Half-Shell Collection to the general public.
In supple pigskin suede, the Half-Shell comes in three adidas Originals' colorway of ST Dark Slate, Forrest, and simple Black, each highlighted with contrast accents in red, blue, and yellow. Part of adidas Originals Fall/Winter 2013 ensemble, the Half-Shell will be available starting in July 2013.
Release Date: July 2013
