The Adidas JS Wings 2.0 by Jeremy Scott look like a glitchy version of the classic winged victory sneakers.

These shoes are black and white and almost identical to the original JS Wings but with an 8-bit twist. In addition to the illustrated wings being pixelated, Adidas pixelated its three iconic black stripes for an even more playful aesthetic—although it is still easily recognizable as an Adidas product because the stripes are such a powerful identifier of the brand.

These are just like the shoes that Hermes, the Greek messenger god would have worn. Although there are many classic elements and references to antiquity in the design of these sneakers, these shoes are updated for the 21st century. Stats for 8-Bit Winged Kicks Trending: Older & Buzzing
