‘The Simpsons’ x Adidas Superstar and ZX 1000 Are Inspired by Two of Springfield’s Most Famous Beverages

After debuting a Krusty Burger-focused ZX 10000, The Simpsons and adidas are moving from food to beverage with a new Superstar “Squishee” and ZX 1000 “Flaming Moe’s.” Besides the ever-present Duff, the Squishee and “Flaming Moe’s” are two of the most famed beverages in Simpsons lore, and each is explored in great detail on its respective adidas Originals sneaker.A signature drink from Apu’s Kwik-E-Mart, the sugar-packed Squishee is transposed onto the Superstar in sweet style. Uppers use a green shade with a white oval on the quarter to represent the Squishee’s jumbo cup, while orange Three Stripe graphics and heel details plus pink laces nod to some of its flavors. Many pieces are bordered with thick black lines, a clever nod to The Simpsons’ signature animation style. The most direct call-outs to the drink arrive on the tongue and throat, by way of a Kwik-E-Mart graphic and a special enamel Squishee lace deubre. Icy blue-green toe caps and outsoles round off the look. First introduced in the tenth episode of The Simpsons’ third season, the ZX 1000 “Flaming Moe’s” nods to a drink invented by Homer Simpson that was stolen and renamed by Moe Szyslak of Moe’s Tavern. Made by combining Krusty the Clown-branded cough syrup with liquor and lighting it on fire, the drink — and the shoe it inspired — boasts a rich purple shade and blazing red accents. The thick black trim used on the Superstar returns, surrounding an upper made of purple mesh and suede. Red-orange detailing hits the midfoot and heel, and the former piece also boasts a fiery embroidered overlay. A “Flaming Moe’s” tongue graphic and special lace deubre complete the top half, with a white midsole rounding off the look.The Simpsons and adidas have yet to announce a launch date for their new collaborative projects, but both will likely arrive this spring.For more footwear news, check out a new see-through Superstar that channels some major Blondey vibes.
