adidas Finally Releases The Zissou

Date: June 27 2017

By: Adam Jane


The mythical adidas Zissou has had sneakerheads and film buffs lamenting its fictitiousness since 2004, when the custom sneaker appeared in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic.

In the movie, the shoe is a cancelled Three Stripe style that was produced for renowned oceanographer Steve Zissou, who has since passed his prime. It's been noted that the Zissou is merely a custom colourway of the adidas Rom, a much less farfetched cinematic sneaker than the Nike Mag or Reebok Alien Stomper, but for some strange reason, it’s never been released to the public – until now.

This past weekend, adidas surprised punters by releasing 100 pairs in Paris. Sadly, if you were hoping to cop, chances are you’ve missed out. They are yet to hit the ‘Bay with exorbitant resale mark-ups and, as it stands, there's no news of a wider release. Nevertheless, we’ll be waiting by the water in hopes of netting our metaphorical Jaguar Shark.

The adidas Zissou doesn’t have a confirmed global release just yet but we’ll keep you posted.
