One way that sneaker brands have celebrated Christmas is by manufacturing kicks that are inspired by the fictional hater of the holly jolly holiday: Dr. Seuss‘ The Grinch. Nike first started off this trend with the late Kobe Bryant’s Kobe 6 “Grinch” colorway in 2010, and now fast forward 12 years later,
The top halves of these seasonally-appropriate sneakers are done up with two shades of bold greens and devised with shaggy suedes to translate the character’s fur. Tongues split their branding between Grinch’s evil eyes on the right shoe and the standard Trefoil hits on the left. Inside the kicks, the insoles have been graced with actual imagery of the animated creature dressed in Santa-inspired garb. Removable pins that you can use to accessorize the kicks include The Grinch’s various facial expressions, gifts and his sidekick Max. Furthermore, the kicks are housed inside a special red shoe box that is printed with his hand dangling an adidas-branded ornament.
More images of the nostalgia-inducing sneakers are available in the gallery above, and you can expect them to release on December 1 through adidas and select retailers.
