adidas Originals – The Legacy of Craftmanship

As part of the “Legacy of Craftsmanship” project, Markus Thaler teamed up with a few younger designers to create unique collaborations for Snoop and three professional athletes. The Snoop Lion shoe, cleverly named the Snooperstar, is a Proshell with a rasta-inspired embroidery on the back. A simplistic Samba reflecting the Argentine flag was created for the country’s current captain and sports icon, Lionel Messi. A Torsion Attitude was created for Derrick Rose, point-guard for the Chicago Bulls, featuring his new logo. And a women’s Court Star was hand cut and stitched for WTA Tennis champ, Caroline Wozniacki. Markus passed on his knowledge from Adi Dassler to the young designer and perhaps even learned a few things himself.
