Originally introduced in 1979 as the go-to shoe for the ten most elite basketball players at that time, the adidas Top Ten is set to re-launch in 2014. Built for the court, the shoe’s all leather high-top design and padded collar quickly made it a status symbol on the street. As part of the Top Ten’s re-release, adidas Originals taps DJ Clark Kent for the first of a video series that tells the story of the classic silhouette through the eyes of its fans. As Kent puts it, the Top Ten just looked right — that’s what made the kids want to lace them up, regardless of whether their favorite basketball player wore them or not. They launch January 24th at adidas Originals retail stores and online.
Release Date: January 24, 2014 (Friday)
