The Beastie Boys have launched a vegan trainer in collaboration with Adidas.
The shoes, which mark the 30th anniversary of Beastie Boys' 'Pauls Boutique' album, were unveiled by Adidas Skateboarding at Beyond The Streets, a graffiti exhibition in New York.
The trainer, usually made from leather, uses off-white canvas as the vegan alternative, with grey detailing and The Beastie Boys' logo on the tongue and heel.
Adidas has launched a vomit and beer resistant version of its München sneaker ahead of Oktoberfest. A special DPBR coating will keep stains from penetrating the leather sneaker and laces.
While designed for beer halls and public houses, they even arrive with a checkered lining to imitate the festival’s tablecloths, the sneakers are also fitting for that next underground techno party or multi-day festival rager.
To further the connection to Oktoberfest, the sneakers are also adorned with the word “PROST” (German for “Cheers”) and embroidery modeled after Lederhosen pants.
Steve Aoki has given a tour of his home in Las Vegas, dubbed ‘Aoki’s Playhouse’, where he shows off his sneaker collection worth over $100k. From Yeezys to special edition DJ AM Jordans, he’s got them all.
The majority of his shoes are Adidas hi-tops, beckoning back to the nostalgic blog-house era when neon hi-top sneakers were all the rage. Although not in the video, It’s a safe bet that Aoki snagged a pair of the new Roland Tr-808 inspired Adidas.
Adidas has created their own fashionable ode to iconic drum machine, the Roland TR-808, releasing a brand-new trainer inspired by the classic piece of production kit.
A prototype for Mi Adidas by Neely & Daughters, the new kicks not only look fierce but can also generate sound, staying true to the design's drum machine roots.
