‘The Simpsons’ x adidas Heads to Krusty Burger & Other Sneaker News Worth a Read



Sneakerheads are bombarded with news of upcoming releases on a daily basis. To save you some time from searching each and every site and leak account, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to sift through the onslaught and bring you a few noteworthy kicks that have captured our attention.

Today, official photos of adidas‘ collaboration with The Simpsons have appeared, detailing a Krusty Burger-inspired ZX 10000. We also received a look at Jean Paul Gaultier‘s wild reimagining of the sacai x Nike VaporWaffle, in addition to Paperboy Paris’ upcoming New Balance 992.

Furthermore, Jordan heads can look forward to the Air Jordan 1 arriving sometime this year in a Chicago Bulls colorway, while a low-top version of the silhouette has emerged in a “Tiffany” Dunk-esque scheme.

Release Date: TBA

Where to Buy: TBA

Editor’s Notes: adidas is paying homage to The Simpsons with a new ZX 10000 release. The colorful collaboration draws inspiration from Krusty Burger, the fictional fast food chain from the iconic animated series. Select design details on the shoe reference the Krusty Burger menu, and others mimic the restaurant’s mascot, Krusty the Clown. While no release date has been announced, the fact that official images have begun to circulate leads us to believe a launch is coming soon.

Editor’s Notes: As sacai founder Chitose Abe was tapped to guest design for Jean Paul Gaultier, it appears the two have worked on more than just a couture line. Ahead of a debut in the Abe x Gaultier runway show, a Jean Paul Gaultier x sacai x Nike VaporWaffle has surfaced. The mid-top sneaker boasts repetitive elements of which the sacai x Nike sneakers are known for, while also incorporating enlarged stitching and a collage of materials. It remains to be seen if the Jean Paul Gaultier x sacai x Nike collaboration will release, but expect to hear more as we near Abe’s JPG couture collection debut.

Release Date: Rumored for Fall 2021

Where to Buy: TBA

Editor’s Notes: Nike is expected to release a Chicago Bulls colorway of the Air Jordan 1 for Fall 2021. With no imagery to be seen quite yet, we’re left guessing what the scheme will look like exactly. It may be a reissue of the “Chicago” or “Black Toe” colorways, for starters. But what we do know is the Air Jordan 1 will be led by black and white colors, paired with varsity red. This is one release you’ll certainly want to keep an eye out for.

Release Date: January 30

Where to Buy: In-store at Paperboy Paris

Editor’s Notes: Parisian cafe Paperboy is no stranger to crossing over into the world of fashion. For their latest foray, the restaurant has teamed up with New Balance for a playful reimagining of the 992. While little is known about the sneaker collab, it appears to be chicken-inspired, as teased in the on-hand preview. Unfortunately, the Paperboy x New Balance 992 will not be releasing online — at least initially — as a drop is scheduled to take place exclusively at the Paris shop (137 Rue Amelot, 75011).

Release Date: TBA

Where to Buy: Nike

Editor’s Notes: Fans of Diamond Supply’s coveted “Tiffany” Dunks from 2005 will likely be drawn to this new colorway of the Air Jordan 1 Low. While it doesn’t hold the same allure, it’s undeniable that the “Tropical Twist” iteration looks somewhat similar to the “Tiffany” pair. The upper is done up in the familiar teal and black color combination, as the Swoosh alongside then boasts a gradient effect. Those interested can expect the Air Jordan 1 Low “Tropical Twist” to release soon for $100, according to reports.
