Ten years ago, the audacious Jeremy Scott collaborated with adidas Originals to create the “Money” Forum Hi as part of the i-sign project. Regarding its theme, Scott states, “It was inspired by American television game shows and the concept of winning prizes like washing machines, luxurious vacations or a shopping cart full of cash.” Unfortunately, the “Money” Forum was limited to only 100 pairs, thus making it a very rare and sought-after drop. Now a full decade and countless collaborative collections later, the American designer and European shoemaker will soon drop a pair of JS Wings 2.0s sporting the aforementioned dollar print that replaces George Washington’s face with Scott’s. Aside from the giant wing motif, this recreation will also see a color-matching sole, tonal laces, and a goat leather lining. In the above video, watch as Scott discusses his latest adidas release and what it’s like to see people wearing his clothing.
The adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott MONEY WINGS 2.0 will be available worldwide on October 15.
