The Shoe Surgeon has placed a D Rose 7 and a Copa Mundial on the operating table and created a fusion masterpiece. The shoe first stirred imaginations when it was seen at 2016’s Art Basel, and at the time, we balked at the notion that such a shoe could be widely available – but these new images seem to insinuate just that.
While The Shoe Surgeon has carved a name for himself by creating unofficial customs for his unique cliente, this looks like an actual collaboration between adidas and the custom shoe designer. The Three Stripes are known to keep a keen eye on the customising movement – they attributed the UltraBOOST Uncaged to watching what customisers were doing with the original design – so it’s not out of the question that a colab could be in the works.
Just 25 pairs of The Shoe Surgeon's adidas D Rose 7 x Copa BOOST fusion have been created and will go on sale on April 14 through The Shoe Surgeon's online store.
