Adidas, the renowned sportswear company, is well-known for its exciting collaborations with various icons of popular culture. And now, they have teamed up with Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, generating a buzz of anticipation for the game’s release in 2023. In addition to this partnership, there are rumors of a delightful Hello Kitty Samba variant and an upcoming collaboration with the anime series “Bocchi the Rock.” However, one collaboration that fans can look forward to is the revival of “The Simpsons” x adidas sneaker collection in 2023.
You might be wondering, didn’t we just see the Itchy, Scratchy, and Poochie Rivalry and Pro Model 80 sneakers earlier this month? And wasn’t there a Homer Simpson Stan Smith and a Marge Simpson Superstar released recently? Well, these new kicks offer a fresh take on the designs. Inspired by the beloved show’s opening sequence, they bring a unique twist to Adidas’ beloved silhouettes.
Let’s take a closer look at the sneakers in this collection. First, we have the adidas adiFOM Superstar “Clouds.” This sneaker captures the iconic moment in “The Simpsons” opening sequence where the clouds part, revealing the show’s title. To recreate this scene, Adidas has used a deep blue base with lustrous white clouds sprinkled on top. The subtle white hue of their signature three-stripes logo on the sides adds to the elegant design. The pop of yellow on the heel strap and insole pays homage to the show’s title text. Overall, it’s a simple yet eye-catching design that pays tribute to the beloved animated series.
Next up is the adidas Forum Low “Living Room,” which pays homage to one of the most iconic spaces in the Simpson family’s world – the living room. This design captures the cozy and slightly chaotic aesthetic of the Simpson family’s living room, where many memorable moments take place. The sneaker incorporates textures like suede, leather, corduroy, and chenille in vibrant shades that reflect the show’s unique style. Other fun features include a sailboat painting on the tongue, an image of Santa’s Little Helper on the heel, and a tufted inner lining reminiscent of the Simpson family sofa. This sneaker truly brings the living room to life.
Lastly, we have the adidas NMD G1 “Homer Simpson,” which highlights the beloved character and references various moments from the opening sequence. The vibrant yellow hue of the sneaker represents Homer’s trademark skin tone, while a brown suede material reflects his beard stubble behind the Adidas stripes. On the medial side, there is a clever image of a remote control, reminiscent of the final moments of the opening sequence. Blue accents represent Homer’s pants, and his famous catchphrase, “D’oh!” adorns the tongue tip. This sneaker is a must-have for any die-hard fan, with its nods to the iconic character.
These sneakers pay clever homage to “The Simpsons” opening sequence and are sure to excite fans of the show. While these observations are based on rumors and should be taken with a grain of salt until officially confirmed by the brand, the collection is undeniably fun and filled with references to the beloved animated series. The release date for the “The Simpsons” x adidas sneaker collection is rumored to be November 11, 2023. The adiFOM Superstar “Clouds” will be available for $100.00 USD, while the adidas Forum Low “Living Room” and the adidas NMD G1 “Homer Simpson” will be priced at $120 USD each.
