First released in 1972, the adidas Campus skyrocketed in popularity when they were religiously worn by rap group The Beastie Boys. So it's only fitting that the shoe now known as the Campus 80s is done in a colorway that salutes the home of the MC trio.
Sporting a collegiate royal blue suede upper, the Knicks (and Mets!) inspiration really picks up with orange leather hits on the Three Stripes, heel tab and tongue branding. Def Jam markings are seen on the tongue and footbed, while the collaboration is noted in gold along the stripes. White works the liner and sole to complete the look.
The latest adidas x Def Jam collaboration is available at retailers, like Schuh-You, today.
