These Adidas Sneakers Have A Built-In TR-808 Drum Machine

A new concept sneaker combine two of our favorite things into one sleek pairing. 

Did you know that 808 is a US police code for a disruption of the peace? If you wear these new sneakers, there’s a chance you might do just that. A concept designed by creative agency Neely & Daughters, the shoe was made to look like Roland’s iconic TR-808 drum machine.

That’s not all though: Beyond its striking yellow and orange on black aesthetic, it also features a built-in rhythm machine. The shoes can play up to six different patterns—and they even have built-in pitch control and Bluetooth streaming.

There are no plans to release the sneakers as yet but with enough demand who knows. Check out the full story behind the collaboration here.
