This year, in addition to donning your usual holiday apparel, adidas Originals wants you to lace up a set of these limited edition throwback Superstar 80′s, made to celebrate the 1987 “Christmas in Hollis” single by RUN-DMC. The song was originally recorded on the group’s A Very Special Christmas album, which, like the sneakers we see today, features iconic artwork by the insanely talented Keith Haring, who lent his hand to creating the record’s cover art. In the case of the sneaker, one of Haring’s character’s sits on the red tongue badge, which joins black leather and a white shell toe for a classic, OG look that places the shoe in its rightful place in history. The RUN-DMC logo is also laser etched along the midsole and it’s also branded inside on the insole. he adidas Originals “Christmas in Hollis” RUN-D.M.C x Keith Haring Superstar 80?s drop December 21, 2013 at adidas.com/originals and retailers nationwide, including Packer Shoes.
Release Date: December 21, 2013 (Saturday)
