Editor’s notes: Jeremy Scott’s iconic winged sneaker is back (again).
Flight-ready shoes are a specialty of Scott, dating back to 2007. Under the ObyO umbrella, he and adidas have teamed up on a series of high-top shoes fitted with gigantic wings, reminiscent of the winged shoes worn by the god Greek Hermes.
The JS Wings quickly became a street style hit, along with other playful silhouettes from Scott and adidas (remember those famous cartoonish teddy bear sneakers?).
Now the silhouette is relaunched in two no-frills colorways: white and black, much more subtle than previous iterations of the JS Wings (which came in loud patterns and colors). Still, the relaunched shoe stays pretty much true to its original form – a premium Forum with wings at the collar.
This isn’t the first time Scott and adidas have reissued the winged sneaker. Last June, collaborators dropped the style in Scott’s signature silver print, first introduced on a Forum Hi in 2003.
The jury is still out on whether Red Bull gives you wings, but Jeremy Scott and adidas certainly will.
