The adidas Conductor High was first introduced in 1987, iconically worn by Jamaican-American player Patrick Ewing. Ewing became synonymous with the model throughout his 15 seasons with the New York Knicks, quickly moving into music culture and being celebrated for its on-stage adaptability.
adidas has reintroduced the Conductor High throughout 2023 as a ‘Collective Series,’ now arriving in classic red, white, and blue hues. The high-top silhouette is crafted from premium white leather, adorning the uppers contrasted by rough suede Three Stripes logos. Embossed “Grey One” collars receive padded inserts for increased comfort, completing the design with ribbed heel cutouts, basketball-inspired tongue tags, and rubber cupsoles. Metallic “ADIDAS ORIGINALS NYC” pendants hang from the upper eyelets, outlining its gold status worldwide.
The ‘Collective Series’ is comprised of four OGs within the footwear industry, including Julia ‘SneakerQueen‘ Schoierer, Scott Frederick of DeFY. New York, Ernst-Heinrich Beckmann aka Erniepunk, and Tom ‘Tommy Triggah‘ Römer.
Take a closer look at the new adidas Conductor High colorway in the gallery above. The pair will release via select retailers on July 29 for $150 USD.
