The Simpsons’ continued airing should be sufficient evidence of its relevance. Whether you’re a fan of the series or not, it’s nearly inevitable that you’ve seen its many memes, which range from inventive interpretations of Skinner’s dinner with the Superintendent to GIFs of Homer quietly backing up behind a bush. Although adidas is certainly aware of many of them, they have not yet incorporated them into their collaboration products – until now.
Using the Stan Smith as a foundation, Three Stripes are bringing a meme to life. The tennis classic seems identical at first sight, with a white leather top and green accents on the tongue label and heel tab. The former, however, is personalized with a photo of Homer Simpson himself, whilst the latter recreates the aforementioned event by depicting the figure retreating behind a chenille bush.
The forthcoming adidas Stan Smith “Homer Simpson” is detailed below, as revealed by @brkicks. At the time of writing, no release date has been announced; for the time being, please be patient as we await new information.
