Rapper Tommy Cash and adidas Design the World's Longest Sneaker
The duo’s collaborative Superstar boasts over 30 rows of laces.
Estonian rapper Tommy Cash, known for incorporating shock art tactics into his music, has collaborated with adidas Originals on an entirely impractical sneaker. According to an Instagram post, the artist approached adidas with the idea to “make the longest shoe in the world.” The footwear brand obliged and, five months later, the duo have created just that — a super long version of the iconic adidas Originals Superstar.
The elongated sneaker boasts over 30 rows of laces. Inspired by the duality of the angel and the devil, Cash decided to render the shoes in two different colors: black for the right sneaker and white for the left. “Yes, these sneakers are different colors,” the rapper said in a press release. “After all, they reflect my mood, which changes every day.” The Superstar’s signature shell toe remains intact, complemented by Cash-specific details including a laser engraving of his signature and a Yin-Yang-printed insole.
