Why indeed Adidas.

Yeah that's right, the anniversary of a club that no longer exists and is now poncey "executive apartments" is being celebrated in a new collab with Adidas to mark the opening of the first Y-3 store. How very depressing that a club built on enthusiasm for new music, the innovative music of Joy Division/New Order and the genius of Peter Saville's design is being celebrated by such as piece of piss poor opportunism.

It's a sad state of affairs alright and tells you all you need to know about the imagination of Adidas. £350 for a pair of grey Adidas running shoes? Still, at least they come in a natty lil box in the shape of the Hac's dance floor, eh. And all this only a few weeks after Tony Wilson died.

    While I'm partial to the "hard-luck" Hanshin Tigers, these sneakers - a collaboration between the Hiroshima Toyo Carp and Vans - are super adorable.

    Last year, Back to the Future Day came and went without a public release of the Nike Mags. About a year later and we plebs are getting a chance to finally own simulacra of the most iconic movie shoes short of Dorothy's ruby slippers.

    Mmmm, donuts... I don't know a thing about hip hop or Odd Future, but I do love their prevalent donut print. The collective has teamed up with Vans to drape their classic silhouettes in their pastry print. The sneakers are somewhat modified from their OG materials.
