adidas teams up with local LA and NYC creators to create limited edition high-performance “adidas Made For” (AM4) silhouettes.

The adidas AM4 running shoe uses the functional performance of a runner with a full-length Boost midsole. Combining the ability to have graphics in its upper it allows creators to make their own iterations of the silhouette. The NY and LA creator list includes:

Kwasi Kessie (Celebrity stylist and adidas Runner’s NYC Captain)
Aaron Kai (LA artist)
Sadelle’s (NYC brunch hotspot)
Brooklyn Ballet (professional dance company)

These limited AM4 shoes are set to release December 6th at select retailers and adidas.com for the retail price tag of $200 USD.
