Pistol Pete is a name that is not only well-known on the basketball court, but also within the sneaker scene too. Peter Press Maravich inspired many sneaker designs – and even his own silhouette – but it’s arguable that his biggest imprint on adidas Originals was the Pro Model.
This classic silhouette was done up in a shiny, smooth, white leather upper with complimentary colors shouting out against it. Blue and green side stripes, a blue heel patch and tongue tag, and finally the green, twin pistol logos on the heel and laces. The final dose of nostalgia comes from the off-white shell toe and outsole, bringing back that vintage look and feel.
Overall a great new colorway on an old ’70s silhouette, showing that adidas doesn’t forget to get the archive some love now and again.
