For over three decades, “The Simpsons” has been a cultural phenomenon, with its iconic characters and memorable moments resonating with fans worldwide. In recent years, the show’s influence has transcended the realm of television, collaborating with adidas to release a series of sneakers that pay homage to its beloved characters and elements.
The latest Simpsons x adidas collection from this partnership is set to drop, and it promises to be a treat for sneakerheads and fans of the show alike. The lineup features three distinct designs, each inspired by a different aspect of “The Simpsons.”
Homer Simpson, the lovable and often clueless patriarch of the Simpson family, gets his very own sneaker in the form of the adidas NMD G1. This shoe boasts a vibrant yellow Primeknit upper, reminiscent of Homer’s skin tone. The lateral 3-Stripes sport a light brown suede, while Homer’s iconic blue pants inspire the detailing around the mid-foot and spine. A playful touch is added with Homer’s “D’oh!” catchphrase patched onto the tongue.
Another standout design is the adidas adiFOM Superstar, which features the iconic clouds from the show’s opening sequence. These clouds, while not characters, are instantly recognizable to any fan of the show. The shoe is adorned with an all-over cloud print set against a rich blue background, making it a visually striking piece.
Lastly, the adidas Forum Low captures the essence of the Simpson family’s living room. This space has been the backdrop for countless memorable moments on the show. The shoe incorporates various materials like suede, leather, corduroy, and chenille to depict elements of the living room. Notable features include a framed sailboat painting on the tongue and graphics of the family’s pet, Santa’s Little Helper, on the spine.
“The Simpsons” and adidas have once again joined forces to create a unique sneaker collection that pays homage to the beloved animated series, making it a must-have for both sneakerheads and fans of the show. Coming in November 2023, the adidas x The Simpsons collection will be available at select stores and on the official adidas US website.
