Just as you can’t fake the funk on a nasty dunk, you can’t beat the funk on adidas Originals. These sneakers were initially released exclusively in Japan in the early 1980s, the adidas 350 was part of the rare AS series of shoes that took European silhouettes and modified them for the rapidly expanding Asian market. Manufactured in Yugoslavia, the original 350 featured a perforated one-piece toe box that made it ideal for the warmer Asian climate. Re-released as part of the adidas SPEZIAL range, the 350 is now back and just released today. The pair features a full suede upper in navy blue with smooth leather accents to the famous three stripe branding across the side walls, with an embossed tongue and gold foiled branding to the lateral walls. Is it possible to match these sneakers with some red and blue themed watches? Take it as red.
