David Choe x Upper Playground x adidas Originals

This Thursday, July 24th, Upper Playground will release the new David Choe adidas Originals sneaker. The Stan Smith shoe is the second release in the four-part series that also includes designs from Herbert Baglione, Aesop Rock, and Sam Flores.

Los Angeles native David Choe is a muralist and graphic artist. He has designed and produced apparel, comic books, movie posters, album covers, fine art books and toys, among many other projects. Choe has collaborated with companies such as Electronic Arts, Levi’s, Sony Pictures and now adidas.

“I wanted to convey a mixture of serial killers, ninjas, nightmares and Ice-T lyrics,” commented David Choe about his new sneaker.

Choe is currently the star of a feature documentary on his life called Dirty Hands. The film documents Choe, a young near-schizophrenic street artist that devises numerous criminal schemes that allow him to hitchhike across the globe.

There are only 500 pairs of the Choe sneaker available worldwide. Sizes range from men's size 4 to 13.5. To pick up your fresh pair of David Choe Stan Smith sneakers, visit
www.upperplayground or head to a UP retail store. The sneaker will go on sale online at 8 am PT on Thursday, July 24, 2008.
