One of the unsung characters from The Simpsons is getting the designer shoe treatment with the Adidas x Snowball II crossover. 

The Adidas Originals Superstar “Snowball” is the latest in the brand’s continuing partnership. Modelled after the shy but inimitable Snowball II, the Simpsons family’s second beloved cat, the shoe seriously looks like the lil’ black feline. It really sits right on the precipice of creepy and cute.

The 3D green eyes are there; the wee pink nose is bang in the middle of the shoe tongue; the shoelaces resemble its whiskers; there are even sticky-out ears; if you’re going to do a cat-themed shoe, you’ve got to really commit.

You can see the Adidas Originals Superstar “Snowball” below. It’s expected to be available to buy in the next few weeks.

It’s the second design in the Adidas x The Simpsons collaboration. A Ned Flanders-themed shoe was released earlier this year, and it looked as brown and bland as you’d expect for ol’ Neddy. He certainly wouldn’t sell it at his Leftorium.

Which character would you like to get the Adidas sneaker treatment next? Maybe a Milhouse one, with his big red glasses on the side. Or even just a donut-inspired shoe, that’d go down a treat.

Incredibly The Simpsons is still airing today: it’s 33rd season kicked off in September, with a 34th already confirmed. They’ve been trying to innovate though, with a new storyline featuring Mr Burns’ right-hand man Waylon Smithers finally getting the gay romance he deserves.
