The 100 Best adidas Sneakers of All Time

99. Half Shell

Year Introduced: 1974

The Half Shell was exactly what the name implied - an adidas basketball shoe with just a half shelltoe. Produced for players only at first, one imagines it was made for those who felt too restricted by the Pro Model/Superstar toe and wanted a conventional leather vamp. A sneaker connossuer grail of the '70s, the Half Shell was later produced for mass consumption.
