Originally introduced in 1979, the Top Ten was designed for the top 10 most elite professional basketball players of the time. With a clean, all leather high-top design and padded collar coupled with a hundred dollar price tag, the Top Ten stepped off court where it quickly became a status symbol on the street.
To celebrate the re-launch of the Top Ten, adidas Originals presents a video series to tell the story of this classic silhouette through the eyes of some well-known Top Ten fans.
Brooklyn’s finest DJ Clark Kent introduces the video series and provides his view on how the Top Ten became a status symbol.
Launching January 24, 2014, the adidas Top Ten will be available at adidas.com/topten and adidas Originals retail stores, $90.
