All-Star Weekend is fast approaching and that means we (well, some of us) will be able to finally get our hands on some of the most hyped sneakers dropping this weekend. adidas is just one of the companies dropping an All-Star Weekend collection, tapping into some of Chicago’s hidden gems for a collaboration. This year’s collection will features designs from Fat Tiger Workshop creatives like Rello, DE$, and Vic Lloyd. The sneaker company also joined forces with a fellow adidas employee and Chicago native, Jasmine Jones.
Each person got the opportunity to design a shoe and show love to their hometown, Chicago. Each sneaker tells a story about growing up in the city and how it has shaped them into the person they are today. For example, Jasmine Jones uses the Top Ten Hi and Pro Model sneakers to reminisce on the Chicago Park District basketball courts where she found her love for basketball. On the other hand, DE$ uses his fiery red Superstar sneaker as ode of appreciation for the women of Chicago.
Each sneaker along with apparel released through each designers’ independent sites over the weekend, however the sneakers will be re-released on Adidas on the February 15th at 3 AM EST.
