Adidas Conductor Olympic
|Back in ‘86 these shoes were the signature shoe for the young Patrick Ewing. In fact, the official name for these shoes were the Adidas Ewing Conductor, a beefed up version of the Adidas Ewing Rivalry. Since Ewing left Adidas in ‘89 to form his own brand, Adidas can no longer use his name on the product nor his logo on the tongue much like Adidas had to do with the re-release of early Kobe kicks.|
The Conductor was released in a ton of colors in its day and came at a time when sneaker companies started to notice the large demand for team shoes so that all players could match their uniforms. This time around, Adidas applies many colors, but just to the side on and in between the stripes. The 6 colors represent each of the 5 rings on the Olympic symbol plus the white field on which the logo sits. One step further was taken with an Olympic Torch making the shape of the Adidas trefoil on the tongue.
