Adidas has style. Wes Anderson has even more style. When The Life Aquatic first screened in 2004, a pair of fresh AF Zissou sneakers caused enough fandom to start a ton of online petitions practically begging for Adidas to formally release the shoes.
It’s easy to understand… just look at these colour coded hombres. Mmmm.
A long, long 13 years after they were first unveiled in The Life Aquatic, you can finally get your mitts on a pair of Zissou sneakers from Adidas.
Back in 2004-5, when the film was running in its prime, limited sneaker runs and gimmick releases were barely even a thing. Now that the world is sneaker-obsessed, Adidas are obviously jumping on the opportunity to brush off this old nest egg.
Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for them to dust off the TR-808 inspired kicks.
The design is a recoloured Adidas Rom, a body first conceived in 1959 for the upcoming Rome Olympics.
100 pairs have been released so far, with Adidas holding back on news of a wider distro. Fingers crossed.
