Jeremy Scott’s fascination with pop culture icons and cartoon characters is no longer a clandestine hobby kept under wraps. In fact, with Jeremy Scott and his unapologetic and courageously irreverent attitude, it seems as if nothing will be kept under wraps and are rolling off tongues quite literally. The designer’s collaborative line with adidas Originals by Originals has been dropping some of the flashiest and attention-grabbing footwear in the sneaker industry these days with daring plays on color, proportion and numbers. Wings on kicks, three tongues on loafers and oversize Trefoil shaped tongue are just iceberg under the water, especially with the JS Mickey Hi now here to join the wild pack.
The adidas Originals JS Mickey Hi as its name suggests, takes the world’s favorite cartoon mouse and fuses it into the chunky hi-top sneaker’s tongue. Conceptually identical to the Trefoil shaped tongue, the JS Mickey Hi sports a modern and fully colored Mickey Mouse with his iconic large black ears flopping over the tongue. The sneaker retains the 80s retro basketball silhouette of the Attitude Hi and is dressed in Mickey’s favorite colors—red and yellow.
