imagining-adidas-kanye-west-stan-smith-03In anticipation of Kanye West‘s upcoming collaboration with adidas, we’ve worked with a handful of artists and designers to imagine the resulting collection. First up is Simeon Georgiev, the young Bulgarian artist behind the LEGO Streetwear FigurinesNike Robotics and Huey, Dewey and Louie. This time around, Georgiev drew up a pair of classic Stan Smiths reinterpreted with a Y-3 Qasa sole and raised plastic heel tab. Kanye’s latest moniker, Yeezus, stands in place of Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto‘s. Both tonal and contrasting details are featured across three simple yet strong colorways.

 

Nike Kobe VIII (8) System ‘Last Chapter’ Sample

Not until the arrival of the current Nike Kobe 9, the Nike Kobe VIII (8) was as good as it got for Kobe heads. With colorways like the “What The Kobe” and “Prelude“, it was disheartening for most collectors to say goodbye to such a glorious shoe.

Ironically, Nike released this “Last Chapter” promo sample to select friends and family as well. Set in a snowflake white motif, these signature kicks don summit white uppers, hints of metallic silver, and sit atop an ice blue translucent outsole. Notable details of this sample also include the words “Last” and “Chapter” inscribed behind each tongue; hopefully this doesn’t make reference to Kobe’s playing days, man!

Rumored to be limited to only a handful of pairs, check out detailed images of the Nike Kobe VIII (8) System “Last Chapter” sample below and shoot us your thoughts in our comments section.
