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

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.
