adidas & Run-D.M.C. & Keith Haring

We thought we’d end the year with this festive-themed limited edition Superstar from adidas Originals - a shoe created to celebrate the 1987 single Christmas in Hollis by Run-D.M.C.

The Christmas in Hollis track originally featured on a collection of festive-season songs by various artists (including Madonna and Bruce Springsteen) entitled A Very Special Christmas. The cover of the album (also shown below) was created by artist Keith Haring and, as you can seen from the images here, the artwork has been replicated on the tongue label of this Superstar release. In addition to Haring’s art, the RUN-D.M.C. logo also appears laser-etched along the midsole of the shoe, as well as featuring on the insole.

For those who are unfamiliar with the Run-D.M.C. track (and for a Christmas treat), the original video for Christmas in Hollis can also be seen below.

The adidas Originals & RUN-D.M.C & Keith Haring Christmas in Hollis Superstar was released today via select retailers and through the adidas Originals website
