adidas Originals teamed up with rapper Big Sean for his unique interpretation of the Metro Attitude. He took one of his favorite adidas sneakers and added his own personal touches while maintaining the snakeskin leather of the original design. Giving a nod to the G.O.O.D. Music recording studio in Hawaii, the sneaker reveals inspiration from the place where he spends much of his time perfecting his craft. After looking at the sneaker, one realizes that Big Sean was inspired by the tropical black sand beaches and the floral print that is famously tied to the studio. On the footbed, there’s a quote that reads, “My dreams stopped being dreams when I turned ‘em into goals,” which is a lyric from his song “First Chain.” The gold graphic inside of the tongue is a roaring lion, which is the same design as his pendant.

adidas and Big Sean are teaming up for their third collaboration together with Saturday’s release of his personalized adi originals Metro Attitude Hi. The Big Sean Metro Attitude Hi is a loud and flashy release that is inspired by the time Sean has spent at the GOOD Music recording sessions in Hawaii. Opting to keep the snakeskin pattern from the original Metro Attitude, the Big Sean version fills in the pattern with Hawaiian flowers around the upper, as well as the midsole. Black suede, representing black sand beaches of Hawaii, counters the floral pattern outlining the toe box, cloaking the three stripes, and taking over the shoe’s heel. Metallic gold accents appear on the heel and tongue’s adi Originals logo as well as on the inside and outside ankle. The shoe’s inner sole includes a Big Sean quote from his song “First Chain” – “DREAMS STOPPED BEING DREAMS WHEN THEY TURNED INTO GOALS.” In addition to the eye popping colorway of the release, the Big Sean Metro Attitude Hi also comes with a Hawaiian fern themed box and a floral themed bag to top off the premium feel of the release.
The adidas Originals Big Sean Metro Attitude Hi drops at select Foot Locker locations and Footlocker.com on Saturday, September 13th for $ 165. Find out if a Foot Locker near you will be carrying the launch on the Launch Locator.
Moving into 2014, adidas Originals is set to reintroduce a necessarily New York classic to the pavement. The three stripes have officially unveiled a look at the Attitude Hi, a sneaker most notable for its run in the ’80s as Patrick Ewing’s former signature shoe. While the Knicks great has long retired, the Attitude Hi finds brand new life in its timeless combination of white, blue and orange, all executed with premium leather and mesh per the original design. True to its heritage in Madison Square Garden, the athletic, high-rising silhouette features a custom adidas Basketball label at the top of the tongue. Look for this release from adidas Originals to drop on January 10, 2014.
