The irredescent, ‘Xeno’ shoes Adidas released upon an unsuspecting public earlier this year, rightfully, caused quite a stir. The rainbow spectrum, reflective shoes were among the most distinctive and innovative releases seen for some time.
These Superstars are a more subtle variation on the form. If Southeast Asia’s Xenopeltis family of snakes is the main point of inspiration for these reflective shoes, this model also incorporates some of the qualities more commonly associated with the serpent.
The snake scaled upper is rendered in an almost matte grey that gives off a less obvious iridescence. Exposed to the right light, and these apparently subdued shoes reflect a dazzling, white. Very much like the stereotypical snake in the grass, it’s easy for these to remain hidden until it is time to strike.
