The Simpsons and adidas are certainly no stranger when it comes to collaborations (this year’s “Homer” was truly iconic), but the upcoming The Simpsons x adidas Rivalry Low 86 “Treehouse of Horror” might just be their best one yet. Taking a leaf out of one of its greatest Halloween episodes, here’s everything that you need to know.
In a colour scheme of red, yellow, and blue, this sneaker is inspired by everyone’s favourite protagonist, Bart Simpson. In the episode, he discovers that his partners have been harbouring a secret for his entire life: the fact that he has an evil twin. Taking a closer look at the shoe’s medial panels reveals embroidered details depicting Hugo’s incision and stitch scars, a subtle nod to the darker undertones of the story.
The material of choice speaks of the duo’s divergent paths: premium leather reflects Bart’s well-known persona, while the distressed textile encapsulates Hugo’s hidden existence and his worn, tattered garments. Both fabrics live side-by-side on this model, akin to the close yet conflicted nature of their relationship.
The Simpsons x adidas Rivalry Low 86 “Treehouse of Horror” IE7180 is expected to release sometime this October, so make sure you keep it locked at Captain Creps for your best chance to cop.
