Chicago artist Hebru Brantley has been an Art Basel fixture for years, notably making headlines in 2012 after JAY-Z purchased one of his paintings for $20,000. This year, Brantley will continue to make a splash through a joint partnership with BBC Ice Cream and Adidas.
The result of their collaboration is the Adidas OG Flyboy Rivalry Hi, a reinterpretation of the retro Three Stripes hoops shoe through the eyes of Brantley. The shoes come decked out in multicolor suede matching the artist's signature Flyboy character, which is also represented on the insole. Unfortunately, Brantley has clarified that the goggles pictured will not come packaged with the shoes.
Exclusive to Art Basel, the BBC Ice Cream x Hebru Brantley x Adidas OG Flyboy Rivalry Hi drops tomorrow at the BBC Ice Cream pop-up located at 255 NW 25th Street in Miami. Fans can expect a slew of co-branded apparel for sale in addition to the sneakers.
