It’s been a while since The Blot blogged about pop culture inspired sneakers, but that long hiatus ends today thanks to my Twitter buddy Alyssa (aka @KennerSeasWees)! I had heard about these Muppet edition adidas sneakers a while back but didn’t realize until yesterday (thanks to Alyssa) that they had already dropped at adidas Originals stores and online! First up is the Muppet edition adidas Superstar 2.0 Kermit sneakers, which feature a soft suede upper, the iconic adidas Superstar shell toe and Kermit the Frog's unmistakable collar over the tongue in honor of the “Original Hip-Hop” artist. I especially love the Kermit sockliners on the inside of this shoe.
Next up is Muppet edition adidas Originals adiRise 2.0 Animal sneakers, named for everyone’s favorite Muppet drummer from the Electric Mayhem! Based on the classic basketball shoe but inspired by the uncontrollable Muppet Animal, these men’s shoes get their rock 'n' roll on with a suede upper, studded ankle strap for Animal style, gold lace jewel with drumstick details, and a faux-fur lining inspired by Animal’s furry coat. The sneakers also feature an Animal print on the tongue and sockliner.
Both of these awesome Muppet inspired sneakers are available now directly from the adidas Originals online store and come packaged in a pretty cool Disney Muppets x adidas Originals box featuring the entire Muppets gang. The Superstar 2.0 Kermit sneakers can be purchased here for $80, while the adiRise 2.0 Animal sneakers can be purchased here for $100.
