Original Story (08/13/21): Today is International Left Handers Day, and what a better way to celebrate than with the reveal of Ned Flanders’ own adidas shoe.
For this Simpsons collab, adidas chose the McCarten, a ’70s leisure shoe-inspired model that embodies Ned’s whole Christian do-gooder father of two vibe. The shoe is dressed in a color scheme inspired by Ned’s daily wear, with green uppers and pink sockliners representing his sweater and collared shirt combo and brown representing his hair and mustache. The shoe comes with a brown leather hangtag debossed with Ned’s face, a poster, and is packaged in a Leftorium-themed box.
Check out official images of the Ned Flanders-themed Simpsons x adidas McCarten “Left Handers Rule” below. These dropped today on adidas UK in celebration of International Left Handers Day, though expect a global release via adidas.com and select retailers on October 4th.
