adidas Crazy 2 (Statue Of Liberty)
Lady Liberty makes her way onto another sneaker here, with her minty likeness embodied in this adidas adidas Crazy 2 and Lady Liberty. The upper comes coated in a vivid mint coating throughout, which upon closer inspection boasts a wild all-over cracking. Hitting the lower half is more speckling supply, with a white midsole and golden hits adding to the mix. The only direct reference we can draw between the sneak and the big lady holding down Liberty Island is the 'The New Colossus' badging resting inside the tongue – a nod to the Emma Lazarus sonnet (1883) of the same title which is plaque engraved inside the Statue itself. If you're feeling them, Oneness is your source. If you're still feelin' inquisitive, recite the full sonnet below. History is rad.
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
- Emma Lazarus, 1883.
