Today marks the 30th anniversary of the Beastie Boys’ album, “Paul’s Boutique”, which dropped on August 25th, 1989.
To commemorate the anniversary, Adidas collaborated with the iconic group to create the Adidas Skateboarding x Beastie Boys Americana sneaker. The limited-edition sneaker drops today in select skateboard stores across North America.
“The Beastie Boys Adidas Americana features an entirely vegan canvas upper bathed in an off-white colorway with grey cotton jersey lining and accents. The Beastie Boys logo, designed by artist Eric Haze, is stamped across the tongue and sock-liner badge in oversizes 90s graffiti fashion, but the design delves into full 90s-indebted style with its classic gum sole.”
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the sneakers will benefit two charities: PEACE Sisters and Little Kids Rock.
