Ladies will have their pick of adidas Originals Superstar 2s in both zebra and leopard prints, both of which are replicated on the Honey hightop and its Honey Winter superhightop variation, respectively. That last one features a silhouette far enough outside the bounds of normalcy that you can only imagine how much attention a design covered in feline rosettes will attract, and they re available now at select Three Stripes retailers like Caliroots.
adidas Originals keeps the pedal of their safari jeep to the metal and brings forth another animal print design for one of its most beloved silhouettes. The adidas Originals Supertar 2 for women is in a certain way one of the more conservative animal print styles we ve seen this year, thanks to its traditional coloring on a model that s no stranger to rocking a black/white getup. What makes these subtly unique is the application of those zebra stripes onto suede, a marker sneaker historians will note as having adidas nmd womens maroon risen to prominence in 2012. They re up for grabs now at retailers like Oneness, so have a closer look below and let us know which has been Three Stripes best animal effort this year.
Maybe it s a result of childish intolerance toward different -sounding names that guides a young man toward a life where skateboarding becomes a key element, because there s no adidas originals nmd pink shortage of riders whose government IDs would make you take a second look. One such pro is Three Stripes repper Nestor Judkins, whose artsy leanings naturally translated to adopting a clean cut-and-sew look before most riders had retired their overdyed neon denims. Nestor s adidas Skate adi Ease lowtops echo this traditionalist sensibility, their classic vulcanized construction and no-nonsense brown/white colorway a timeless style you can add to your rotation at retailers like Premier.
Sneaker News served up a first look at the Nike Zoom KD V when Kevin Durant was spotted wearing the upcoming shoes during a commercial shoot for the NBA 2K13 video game franchise. It looks like those who purchase a copy of the award-winning 2K13 will get a look at the shoes as well; in the promotional adidas nmd r1 triple white photography used as a backdrop for the NBA 2K13 campaign, Kevin Durant is seen wearing the yet-to-release KD V in the Away Thunder colorway. Might as well note cover-mate Derrick Rose, who is wearing the adidas Rose 3, and Blake Griffin in the Lunar Hyperdunk+, which leads us to believe that NBA 2K13 will also have a nice emphasis on the kicks as well as on the realistic gameplay. NBA 2K13 hits stores on October 3rd, but catch a preview of KD in the kicks here!
The Brand with the Three Stripes has been changing its spots back and forth from cheetah to leopard, to a whole range of animal prints that ve made for one of 2012 s most memorable trends. After Detroit rapper Big Sean showed off an adidas Originals Superstar with leopard upper about a year ago, we saw similar looks from Japanese retailers Kinetics and ABC-Mart, plus plenty of other cat and otherwise wild inspirations.

If you think the Michael Jordan-Kobe Bryant comparisons will end after the Black Mamba s Hall of Fame career comes to a close, then just wait until the next multi-championship winning shooting guard comes around (or until LeBron gets into the fistful-of-rings echelon). Kobe won the 1997 NBA Slam Dunk Contest in the EQT Elevation, but it was the adidas Top Ten 2000 in which a teenage Mamba first posed as the Jumpman, then met His Airness himself face-up in the adidas nmd r2 mens All-Star Game. This new Top Ten 2000 colorway mixes together a bit of the Lakers look (those OG Top Ten 2000s were white/navy anyway, not exactly a perfect match for the purple and gold) with the greys and an Elephant-like print a la Air Jordan III (the model in which Mike made his indelible poster of a free throw line dunk).
