Adidas is taking an old school approach to marketing and is re-releasing the Adicolor LO (originally from 1983). The kit includes the original plain white shoes, paints, brushes and a wooden palette. The box will include sealant to keep your painted shoes looking great.

Celebrating color, customization and personal expression, adidas presents adicolor Podcasts, an inspired collection of short films conceived specifically for iPod, PSP or online viewing from seven of the most exciting and culturally relevant directors working today. Roman Coppola & Andy Bruntel, Neill Blomkamp, PSYOP, TRONIC, Saiman Chow, Charlie White, and HAPPY were each assigned one of seven colors – Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Pink, Black or White.
A simple, open-ended brief asked each director to create a viral film based on their emotional and creative response to that color. The resulting shorts are a color-coded collection of innovative film aesthetics and contemporary creative sensibilities, a truly post-modern mix of genre, style and technique.

Adidas Id Street Advertising
With the Street Advertising campaign encouraging defacement Adidas show how to get it right. First, adidas put up a series of mostly white flyerposters – branded with the adidas logo – that subtley encouraged people to tag the billboard and basically fuck it up. It’s great what people have come up with, ie. customizing billboards with colors.
“Of all the recent street campaigns we’ve seen lately, this is our favorite one by far. It’s extremely clever, but most importanly it fits the brand perfectly”, says Wooster Collective
