Sean absolutely murdered his first two collabs with adidas Originals. For the third release, the retro appeal remains with the adidas Originals 2014 Metro Attitude. The Pro Models couldn’t be topped, and 2 Chainz has the Top Ten game on lock, so it appears Captain #ProtectArianna is opting for another popular retro.
These Metros will likely appeal to a smaller demographic than the ‘Detroit Player’ Pro Models. Nothing wrong with grown men wearing florals (shoutout to the retirees rocking Hawaiian shirts), but a bolder pattern may turn some fans away the shoes. However, the quality materials are there and the craftsmanship is there. The grey sole will help disguise any potential yellowing, and the gold accents are well executed and always welcomed. There are even some lyrics inscribed on the interior of the shoe that read “My dreams stopped being dreams when I turned ‘em into goals.”
To finish off the pair, a dustbag and custom box come with the kicks. Perfect for travelers who actually like bringing heaters abroad and details-obsessed shoe heads (ie – most of us old heads). Much like Sean’s music, his newest sneaker release isn’t for everyone. But it fits a niche and the work put into the final product is something to appreciate.
The Big Sean x adidas Originals 2014 Metro Attitude releases September 13th at select accounts. Retail is $165.
