In a new collaboration set to pop off this summer, adidas has teamed up with one of the leading artist driven brands out there Upper Playground to create a series of four artist designed shoes. Volume 1 will see the talents of 12Grain’s Sam Flores, while Volume 2 is done by Upper Playground family, Aesop Rock. Details are currently sketchy revealing only a slight look at what appears to be a Metro Attitude High and Stan Smith. Stay tuned for volumes 3 and 4 as well as a further look into these two models.
EDIT: The Sam Flores joint seen here is a Decade Hi, thanks Jason.
