Default Adidas Americana Beastie Boys sneakers

Saw this in Brooklyn vegan about the beasties new sneakers


Horovitz says the Adidas partnership felt right because they’ve actually been wearing them for decades. “Like, I love Coca-Cola, because it’s delicious,” says Horowitz. “And if it was just about McDonald’s fries, I’d be on board, because I use those products. Same with Adidas. I’ve used their Campus and shell toes, and Stan Smiths, and Rod Lavers . . . a lot of their products!”

When it came to designing their own pair, the two decided on vegan canvas in an off-white, accented with a light gray cotton jersey liner and matching three stripes. The Check Your Head-era, Eric Haze-designed Beastie Boys logo is stamped on the tongue and inside. “We just started talking with a couple of their design guys about different ideas for what we could do to the sneaker, and Mike and I were talking about the stripes, and what if they were cut out and you could see through the shoe,” says Horovitz. “Then we thought it’d be cool if it was like a sweatshirt on the inside, like a sweatshirt for your feet, and you could see the inside from the outside. That’s our twist.”

Oh, and don’t forget about the gum soles. “We’re suckers for the gum soles,” says Diamond.

I drove to Charlotte from Atlanta. Black Sheep skate shop.
I was first one here by 20 minutes or so. They also only had 8 pairs (only 2 my size). 😄

Thumbs down Re: Adidas Americana Beastie Boys sneakers

I went to the Chicago shop today. Got there an hour before they opened. About 30 people in line. Lots of arguing and confrontation about who was in what order. Cops called - 3 squad cars show up. Only 9 pairs. Cops and owner figured out who the first 9 were and sent everyone else on their way.



Thank You Adam Yauch

Nope.

Got to the door and they announced they sold out. All the dudes in front of the line were outside the store taking photos of them and uploading them. Dicks. Gonna flip them do that away from people actually wanting them.

Sorry to hear you didn’t get a pair. I wasn’t after them myself but I feel for the real fans who queued up and left empty handed. Currently looking at a pair for sale for $530 on eBay. Madness.

Looking forward to the Adrock fries and Coke promo at the meth-tweaker McDonald's in my neighborhood.

fuck the people who stood in line to grab an $85 pair to go home 30 minutes later and post them for resale on ebay or stockx for $500. especially since part of the proceeds went to charity and the person who paid $500 (maybe me) had none of that go to the charity.

fuck the people who go to galaxy's edge and build a $200 lightsaber and snatch up all the white and yellow $15 crystals just to go home to post them on ebay for $1000 bundle.



thank you adam adam & mike

This is exactly how I feel subjectively, because it would be better if I didn't have to deal with profiteers who gave not one single shit about the band, the fans, the charities, or the vision.

Objectively it's no different than buying something and selling it later. Buy low, sell high. To be sure, there are some dirt bags, but how can I blame somebody for monetizing their time in line?

The dudes in the front of the line had no idea what it was for. Just that it was a rare Adidas shoe. When a beastie fan told them what it was and for they just shrugged and could give a shit. They also knew how many shoes they had and kept counting the line and laughing. If I knew at the time that’s what they were doing I would of been so pissed. I just thought they thought it was funny how many people showed up.

Truth. Flippers are pretty much a cancer. Profiteers at best. They take advantage of limited releases and resell for profit only. I don't know how anyone can stop that. Maybe in a different time you or I would have conceded our spot for a true fan, I probably would have. The only point I want to make (understand I am on team fuck flippers and team fans should get the limited releases) is that if enough fans showed up 8 hours early, they couldn't have been there early enough to flip them. It's not an endorsement of what they are doing, or a recrimination of 30+ year fans for not rearranging their schedule to show up in the middle of the night for a shoe launch. The flippers have a well organized game plan. The fans can either go way out of their way to get shit at cost or pay the flippers. That's reality.
