“My Adidas” the first single from Run D.M.C’s third album Raising Hell just turned 30 years old. Released on 29th May 1986.
Refusing to conform to pop standards Run D.M.C decided they would dress on stage the way they dressed on the streets. This would mean, adidas Superstars, arguably the sneaker that started a whole movement, worn without laces and the tongue pushed right out. Complete with full adidas tracksuits it was a look that has stood the test of time.
The shoe and the song became the soundtrack to a generation and the silhouette is firmly cemented in the history books. Now the adidas I possess for one man is rare myself homeboy got 50 pair got blue and black cause I like to chill and yellow and green when it’s time to get ill.
