Adidas Launches ‘Happy 420’ Sneakers, Complete With Useful Stash Compartment
This release is dubbed, “Happy 420” as a nod to April 20th. Featuring a hemp upper that has been heat pressed with a stoned-out pattern, which is a nod to the burning of hemp. Hitting the heels is hairy chunk suede that reflects the texture of cannabis buds, while the heel tan and tongue receives prescription labels, a reference to medical marijuana.
Check out the additional images below and in order to purchase the BAIT adidas Stan Smith Happy 420 collaboration, you’ll have to sign up for the raffle here. The retail price tag is set at $120 USD.
Just in time to celebrate the smokiest of days, 420, comes a dope new shoe from the brick and mortar retailer BAIT and adidas Skateboarding. The shoes will drop on April 15 and will ship by April 18.
Created with natural hemp, the shoe, called “Happy 420,” takes the traditional Stan Smith silhouette with a chunky heel that resembles cannabis buds.
Things get lit on the shoe’s tongue, a nod to a medical cannabis prescription label that cheekily reads, “High-potency superior quality.”
Perhaps the best part of the shoe is the secret compartment behind the tongue, a pocket for tiny goodies, like your business cards, cash or perhaps a (legal) stash of ganja
But of course, in true sneaker culture, the shoe isn’t readily available for just anyone. You have to enter a raffle for even the opportunity to purchase a pair. And then you’ll have the good fortune of paying a hefty $120. That, right there, is a good wad of green.
To snag a pair, go to BAIT.
