Life Aquatic Adidas Shoes
So I am in love with the shoes that Team Zissou wore in Wes Anderson's film "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou". And I really want a pair, but I can't find any on Ebay or anywhere. Does anyone have any information? Also, I believe the model they are based off of are Adidas Roms...does anyone know where to find these? Maybe I could make my own. Thanks for any help

Those Adidases were indeed nice.

Wes Anderson has the best use of music, colors and costumes of anyone working in cinema today IMO.

custom-made
I haven't seen the film but from my brief research, the shoes were custom-made and were based on adidas gazelles. So I went and found these pics, does either of them look close?

I love adidas...

Hi there, this is my first time posting. Aparently the Zissou is the Adidas ROM with some superficial changes; there were never produced for retail.

(Very) full details are here: http://www.joshrubin.com/coolhunting...as_zissou.html
