adidas Originals Panel Talk | Event Recap

Continuing our Originals story with adidas, last weekend we ventured down to the adidas Greek Street Store pop up to host a panel talk focussing around Originals, cultural moments and the UK Hip Hop scene.

Alongside the face of our campaign Benji, AKA Blunt Shank, we also had Gary Aspden and Jon Green as well as Samuatro who played host.

The evening started with a look around the archival space upstairs in the pop up. Here wasn’t only an adidas heads dream, but anyone into sneakers could walk in and marvel at what was on show. From a complete signed cabinet of Superstars from the likes of Nas, Jay-Z to Mos Def and P-Diddy all the way through to collaborations from old to new. This room was a showcase of what Originals has been about and what their story will continue to be.

After this, it was time for the talk. With Gary Aspden leading up from an adidas point-of-view, the audience also got to meet Benji and Jon Green. Two people rooted within the UK’s Hip Hop scene with ties back to music, sneakers and even pirate radio.

Take a closer look below at the evenings events and why not take a look back at our feature with Benji here.
