Paying tribute to adidas Originals brand ambassadors from the worlds of sport and entertainment, the Legacy of Craftsmanship series features classic silhouettes refashioned by legendary adidas designer Markus Thaler and a new generation of design talent from the Trefoil brand. In addition to the Snoop Dogg Pro Shell, the limited run of hand-made sneakers includes a Samba model inspired by Argentine soccer god Lionel Messi. Under the guidance of Markus Thaler, adidas Originals designer Vincent Etcheverry created a clean, low-profile shoe dressed in the colors of the Argentina national football team. Features include a white leather base and grey suede toe overlay, complemented with Argentina blue accenting and Messi branding at the heel and along the sidewalls. A stitched Argentina patch on the insoles finishes the look. Check out detailed looks in the gallery below.
