Adidas releases Roland TR-808 drum machine inspired shoe

To the surprise of many, Adidas released yesterday (May 4) an homage to the legendary Roland TR-808 drum machine. Named the “Mi Adidas TR-808,” this prototype shoe is a functional drum machine featuring volume control as well as six different pre-programmed settings.

Created by Neely & Daughters, these new kicks were inspired by the TR-808 inside and out. Check out a few of the product images below.

As a prototype these shoes are unlikely to see the shelves anytime soon, but with popularity stemming through the DJ world, who knows… there may be a limited release in the future.
