Touted as the ‘hottest womens sneaker of the season’, the ADIDAS BASKET PROFI has been treated to perhaps it’s most spine-tingling colourway to date – Metallic Silver. To celebrate the classic’s shiny make-over, ADIDAS ORIGINALS have joined ranks with equally swish London based lifestyle website and collective, COPSON STREET.

The multi-talented Copson Street workaholics – and good friends of The Drop Date – Maria Falbo and Nyx Deyn, were approached by adidas for their style expertise, to create a collection of images to showcase the Metallic Silver Basket Profi in all it’s glossy glory. Aided by accomplished photographer Lydia Garnett, the Copson Street team set to work, and what they’ve created is something quite spectacular.

The team purposely steered clear of the usual ‘street’ style that we’ve come to expect from most lookbook shoots of late, and in turn have demonstrated a tonne of ways to wear the new release, oozing with the creative skills and minds of pro skater Maria and Select Model Agencies finest, Nyx.

They have shown us how a retro style can be brought to life with contemporary trends to keep them looking sassier than ever.  Gone are the days of having to pick a duller colour when versatility is on your shopping list as we see the Metallic Silver colourway being teamed with purposely clashed neons, patterns galore, and an assortment of sharp mens tailoring.



The worship-worthy collective is sure to leave lots of girls hoping to look even half as dapper as Maria does in the basket-style high tops. Ladies, if you don’t want to experience a serious dose of style-envy then we recommend you steer clear of the photos below – you have been warned!! – although it’s fair to say that you’re going to find it pretty hard to resist… With a perfect white rubber outsole, full grain leather upper and those hard to resist 3-stripes, we’re sure plenty of you’ll be wanting to add the super-sweet piece of footwear to your rotation this winter.

The ADIDAS WOMENS BASKET PROFI in this straight-out-of-space Metallic Silver colourway is available now from a uk3.5 up and can be picked up via the link-through below.
