Adidas’ new NBA sneaker collection is a toy.
‘Toy Story’ to be exact.
This new line of legendary colourways inspired by Disney Pixar’s collection of CG movie classics are so good they’ll have you rushing back into your bedroom to see if they come alive when you’re not looking.
To infinity and beyond, there’s a snake in your sneakers.
A lime green and purple drop that glows in the neon dark like Star Command, that’s buzzing for Dame Lillard like Lightyear for his 7’s.
A blue and brown Woody edition with cowprint that would go great with a stetson, designed by Utah’s own Donovan Mitchell out in the desert that you will want to lasso.
A green Rex high top all the way to the teeth of your socks that roars like Godzilla.
Something truly alien you’ll pull all your change out your pockets to get the “claaaaaw” out for.
Even some Jessie’s for all the babies. There’s so much to play with here.
Now just wait until you see the toy shoe box these goodies come in.
Alas big kids, I have some bad news. We’re not going to Disney World this year like the NBA. Sorry to burst your bubble. The ‘Toy Story Friendship Collection’ is for kids only. You must be this tall to ride.
Apparently, you don’t have a friend in me.
It’s time to start a petition for these in super sizes like a Warner Bros ‘Space Jam’.
Photographed perfectly on beds designed from the movie next to their action figures, we are taken back to Andy’s room for the series that brought out its latest movie ‘Toy Story 4’ last Summer. All for a new line like cinemas that also includes apparel in the form of English and Spanish language t-shirts from the famous Randy Newman song, “ihay un amigo en mi” for Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month, Rex jerseys that could rival those throwback Raptor ones and the famous Luxo Pixar ball Basketball design and a Pro Model to match.
Imagine hitting the playground in these.
Still the nicest touch of this design process belongs to the sole of these products. Lift up your feet and you’ll see Andy’s name wrote on the bottom of these sneakers like the toys he owns.
Why not the players names you ask? Sure from Donovan to Damien that would look the part for taking that ownership back on their own designs. Still let’s just say it’s a good job Paul George is signed with Nike, because the bottom of his sneakers would probably read, “Dame”.
These toy stories are incredible…now how about a range from some more Pixar heroes under the lamplight like ‘Monsters Inc’? They would fly off the shelf like cars and turn your kids wardrobes inside out.
