adidas Originals has tapped the estate of late American pop artist Keith Haring for a footwear capsule in honor of Pride Month. The capsule features Haring’s iconic artwork on three equally iconic silhouettes from adidas: the Stan Smith, the Rivalry Hi, and the Nizza Hi.

The Stan Smith remains mostly true to its original form, swapping out the usual colored panel at the heel with bright orange and replacing the tennis player’s logo on the tongue with a caricature of Haring himself, also in orange. One of Haring’s illustrated characters adorns the shoe’s toebox, giving it just the right amount of artistic touch for the classic silhouette.

The Rivalry Hi gets a heavier revamp, heavily dressed in Haring’s graffiti-like designs, from dancing human characters to smiley faces and stars. Color-wise, the predominantly white sneaker gets painted in a summer-ready orange and blue on its midsole, branding, and lining.

Finally, with the Nizza Hi, Haring creates a midpoint of the other two designs, with hints of light blue accents on a largely white silhouette, decorated with his trademark graphics near the midfoot and heel of the shoe, and lining the interior.

All three of the adidas Originals x Keith Haring models will be available June 30, over at the adidas store. The Stan Smith will go for $100 USD, while the Rivalry and Nizza will go for $140 USD and $120 USD respectively.

And for more sneaker news, Nike has just dropped a ’90s windbreaker-inspired Air Max 95.
