Disney and Adidas have joined forces to bring sneaker fanatics the stylish adi-RISE Mickey X kicks. While some may quickly assume that the design will be childish due to Disney’s affiliation, I assure you that adults will want to rock a pair of these.

The adi-RISE Mickey X sneakers are a pair of impressive high-tops that are fairly similar to the Derrick Rose’s adizero Crazy Lights -- but with some slight differences. It looks a little more layered due to the addition of the front and heel strap. Otherwise, the overall design strikes a great resemblance to Rose’s signature kicks. Details include Mickey’s scowling face on the tongue and the character’s legs and feet in a crossbone-like design spread throughout the upper.

The adi-RISE Mickey X sneakers are limited editions and are available now in select retailers. Stats for Scowling Cartoon Kicks Trending: Older & Buzzing
