I really am not sure where I stand on this one. It is as if acknowledging the fact that Kermit is cool with these Adidas trainers makes him uncool!
Implications - But can you imagine the amount of swagger one would have to have to rock these kicks without shame? Massive. They also seem ready made to be co-opted by an irony worshipping hipster. I'm sure Adidas had both of those markets in mind when they began developing these Kermit the Frog kicks.
