With the Year of the Rat approaching, adidas Originals is celebrating with Mickey Mouse themed sneakers. The Disney collaborative collection includes two colorways of the Stan Smith and an edition of the Superstar.
The Chinese Lunar New Year themed kicks will go live globally on the 18th of January on adidas.com.
adidas Originals ushers in the Year of the Rat in a playfully eccentric style with the CNY : Mickey Mouse Pack . Bringing one of the world’s most iconic animated characters, Disney’s Mickey Mouse, together with two of sportswear’s most revered footwear silhouettes, the Stan Smith and Superstar, the pack celebrates tradition, pop-culture, and design heritage.
Serving as a subtle nod to important numbers in Chinese tradition, the pack is comprised of three distinct sneakers – the “CNY Mickey Mouse Stan Smith 3D”, the “CNY Mickey Mouse – Out of Office Stan Smith ”, and the “CNY Mickey Mouse – Out of Office Superstar ”.
Perfectly merging aesthetic heritage with modern style, the “CNY Mickey Mouse Stan Smith 3D” features an all over three-dimensional graphic upper and printed insoles. The striking sneaker is capped off with a pair of 3D glasses, allowing the wearer to experience the silhouette in an innovative way, turning the designs into a fully readable comic strip.
The “CNY Mickey Mouse Out of Office” Stan Smith and Superstar shine a light of the original style of two adidas archival icons while offering an energetic update. Each sneaker is made up in a full grain leather upper which features bold Mickey Mouse graphics. In fittingly whimsical style, the two “Out of Office” sneakers are finished off with a handwritten printed message declaring that Mickey is taking a trip away for the Lunar New Year.
