These Adidas x Jeremy Scott Originals feature the NYC designer's now-signature wings with an added style feature: the shoes look and feel like they're made from basketball leather.

Previous iterations of the Adidas x Jeremy Scott Originals collaboration include gold, black, clear and money-patterned sneakers. The wing has been styled in different ways, sometimes edgy and jagged, sometimes delicate and feminine, but the signature theme remains. In this edition, the Adidas x Jeremy Scott Originals have a pebbly texture and a burnt orange color, just like the outside of a basketball. The black laces and soles and the brighter orange detailing on the wings add to the basketball-like look.

There is an entire corner of the Internet devoted to a passion for sneakers: collectors and connoisseurs around the world over rush to snap up the latest styles and collaborations. These Adidas x Jeremy Scott Originals are just out-there enough that they are an instant collector classic, but not too extreme to be worn -- perfect for shoe fanatics.
