ADIDAS CAMPUS 80 (HOUSE OF PAIN)
To be sure, to be sure! Here's one for the paddymelons that we couldn't help but fall in love with. House of Pain member Danny Boy O'Connor contributed design concepts for the Campus 80 and managed to knock this one out of Fenway Park with a toothpick. There are elegant design touches everywhere on this shoe which indicates an educated adidas hand was at work, but it was the luxurious emerald green suede that immediately girded our loins. So deep, so green, so lush, it was like you could dive into it and emerge in Dublin with a pint of Guinness waiting for you. If you were super lucky, you might have even ended up with one of Frank the Butcher's rare Concepts x House of Pain x Adidas Boston Celtics jerseys. Olé!
