A new pack of sneakers is coming up very soon from adidas Originals. It’s the fall/winter 2014 “SHIELD” pack, which as far as I can tell doesn’t have anything to do with Marvel‘s Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
The sneakers in the “SHIELD” pack do, however, come encased in distinctive snakeskin shells over the upper, which gives the sneakers an interesting (and a little bit creepy, somehow) look. The latest shoes to get the SHIELD treatment are the Samba and the Superstar 80, both of which are available in two different colorways each: The Samba in black and burgundy, and the Superstar 80 in black and white.
You can see all four of the sneakers in the adidas Originals fall/winter 2014 “SHIELD” pack in the gallery up at the top of this page. And that aforementioned release date is August 1st, just two days away as I write this, so keep an eye out for the sneakers to hit select adidas retailers then.
