adidas Connector Hi
- MODEL: ADIDAS CONNECTOR HI

The Connector is another beautiful vintage basketball shoe by adidas. Various different takes on the shoe have emerged over the years, an old favorite being the 1989 LA Lakers edition. Like a fine wine, the shoe has developed personality with age, remaining extremely comfortable and impressively sturdy.
The sneaker’s main features are its oversized tongue and heavy duty traction out soles. Its classic white and black colorway is reminiscent of the legendary adidas Superstar.
A minimalist leather upper is broken up by familiar, black side stripes. Shadowed by a sneaky dark gray lining, the stripes are complimented by the soft perforated upper heel and ankle sections, both well padded with specially-treated black nylon for support and comfort.
The sole is reinforced with small teeth on the sides for extra traction on the court, finished in a striking white and black pattern. Originally they come with off white laces though they are pictured here with black lace flips.
