The creative geniuses at adidas have once again outdone themselves with their latest collaboration, this time drawing inspiration from the beloved animated series, The Simpsons. And let me tell you, sneakerheads, these kicks are going to blow your mind.
Just in time for Halloween, adidas has unveiled a special colorway that pays homage to Bart Simpson’s long-lost evil twin, Hugo. Who could forget Hugo’s first appearance in the iconic Treehouse Of Horrors VII episode that aired way back in 1996? As conjoined twins, Bart and Hugo were inseparable, quite literally attached at the hip. But things took a dark turn when Hugo revealed his violent nature by sinking his teeth into his unsuspecting brother.
In a twisted twist of fate, Marge, Homer, and Dr. Hibbert were left with no choice but to separate the twins, banishing Hugo to a life in the attic surviving on nothing but fish heads while Bart continued to live as a “normal” child. But brace yourself, because the story doesn’t end there.
Hugo, ever the resourceful one, managed to capture Bart and attempted to sew themselves back together. Talk about a bizarre family reunion! Luckily, their plans were foiled, and through this wild ordeal, the Simpson family realized that Bart, not Hugo, was the true evil twin. Can you believe it? The scare on Bart’s right side gave him away. In a stroke of sheer Simpson’s wackiness, Homer and Marge decided to swap the two, bringing Hugo into the family fold and chaining Bart up in the attic.
Now, let’s talk about the sneakers themselves, shall we? The Rivalry Lo is the perfect canvas for this Bart-inspired colorway, featuring vibrant shades of orange, yellow, and blue that capture his mischievous spirit. But it doesn’t stop there, folks. To truly embody Hugo’s tattered clothes, adidas has used a rough canvas material for these kicks, giving them an edgy and worn-in look. And here’s the kicker: the medial mid-panels are adorned with embroidered detailing that showcases the incision and stitch scars from the twins’ separation. Talk about attention to detail!
