The low-top sneaker from the German athletic brand and Disney bears pink-and-purple stripes over a fur-like texture. Its design is based on the fictional feline’s appearance in the 1951 film based on English author Lewis Carroll’s 19th century novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
What to know about Adidas Campus 80 Cheshire Cat sneaker
Adidas’ Campus 80 Cheshire Cat sneaker with Disney comes in semi solar pink, glory purple, cream white colourway.
These new shoes have round toes with off-white rubber soles, purple laces, and light pink heel counters. The distinctive mischievous curved grin of the cat is embossed in white on the heel counters.
“We are all mad,” the famous Disney movie quote by the cat, can be found inside the heel in white letters over a deep purple hue.
