tennis makeovers: rod laver, stan smith, ilie nastase, etc.

We’re very excited about adidas Original‘s Spring/Summer 2008 line, a diverse collection which includes the eco-friendly adidas Grun; Handbags for Feet, a footwear and apparel collection inspired by handbags (I want the Fendi Spy Bag as a shoe!); Original Games, the Beijing-focused Olympics line; Sounds of the City, a collaboration with the music industry; and another round from Missy Elliott‘s Respect M.E.


And of course there’s the Tournament Edition, a line of tennis-inspired sneakers. A gold version of the company’s trefoil logo appears on the tongues of all five shoes, while the signature three stripes show up in green and gold. Classic. (Buy: In a few months, they’ll be available here.)
