Was It For Adidas?

Ah here.

Adidas have a collection of St. Patrick’s Day inspired shoes “with festive colours and a clover sign-off to celebrate St. Patrick’s day”.

The clover really makes it ridiculous, and the Irish colours are backwards….

    This regularly happens when a company tries to jump on a cultural bandwagon which is outside their milieu.
    And a clover?

      Tasteless American tootle-pumpkins for tasteless American rootle-strumpkins.

      (Bodger, I am begging you, leave it alone this once, for the sake of a good rhyme!)

            Me too Lushie.

            It was something elegant about twinky pinky and footle-tootle.

            But clearly SOME PEOPLE are no crinkle-pumper-pants.

            It made me realise that I pronounce tweetle as twottle and it’s wrong and not as effective.

            COME ON! Twot isn’t even a WORD!
            Pack a twoottles. You don’t deserve us.

      however, that’s peachy orange and minty green, so…maybe not necessarily meant to represent the flag.

      Morto too, but if they’re giving them away for free I would take the hit and wear ’em.

    The flag is the right way around if you turn the shoe, toes on the left side of the image. Is it not designed with toes to the front? Anyway, shizz looking shoe

        I thought shizz was sure. Fo’ shizz. I’m trying to remember the days when I watched The Wire.

    I’m surprised the didn’t mark “St Patty” on it somewhere. Get outta my field Yank!

    Cost considerably less than a fiver to make. This range of “handball” shoes sell in the UK for £70, but they charge £110 for these Ivory Coast ones.

    I don’t know of one Irish person who would wear their themed Paddy’s Day apparel after the 17th, certainly not a clover on their shoe. Adidas have done zero market research. Some brands get too big for their, eh..boots.

      Get yourself down to the Submarine bar next time the Republic are playin. There’s also a few thousand scrotes that would give their left one for a pair of those.

    The clover is egregious, but the flag is done the correct way for a depiction on a two sided object. Take a look at Air Corps airframes for instance.
