Adidas pulls the Top Ten Hi out of the archives this weekend. The Adidas Top Ten Hi basketball shoes are part of the “holy grail” of classic East Coast kicks. Before Jordans ruled and reigned the sneaker world, these Three Stripes could be spotted on the basketball court and in the streets. It was the year of 1979 to be exact, and Adidas designed the coveted shoes for 10 of the NBA’s most elite players of the moment. Its all-leather, superbly padded high top design and pivot point made it perfect for intense games on the hardwood.
And now, the shoe that changed the game 35 years ago is back, still representing for the streetwear influencers, trendsetters and musicians who have an affection for fly kicks. Peep Maybach Music’s Stalley rocking the Adidas Top Tens below!
Still boasting the same White, Blue and Red OG colorway that caught the attention of basketball fans back in 1979, the Top Ten Hi will make its return on January 24. So keep it locked here on our blog to know which of our stores will be stocking these old school kicks!
