The last time Jeremy Scott took inspiration from a stuffed toy when designing a kooky pair of sneakers for Adidas, it didn’t go so well. You may recall that Scott looked to the ’80s toy My Pet Monster and his distinctive orange shackles when creating the JS Roundhouse Mid kicks that critics such as Jesse Jackson recently compared to “slave shoes,” prompting Adidas to cancel production. Scott’s new collection for Adidas is just as colorful but much less controversial, unless the remaining members of the Grateful Dead are up for an ursine legal tussle. The fall Adidas x Jeremy Scott collection looks back to the designer’s 2011 Coachella bash, awash in plush bears that reppear here on trippy hightops in a colorway described as “slime/macaw green” and a shirt printed with a sea of toy bears wearing colorful trefoil tees. Bears not your thing? Be bullish on Scott’s rainbow-keyboard print, available on an eye-searing tee, sweatpants, and maxi dress.
