The Chimp Store is a boutique clothing store in Leeds, UK that will proudly display the new Spring/Summer collection of adidas Originals in 2014. Their only problem is that they just can’t wait that long to show them off, which is why they commissioned the help of British artist Chris Anderson to recreate to-scale versions of the upcoming styles using 100 percent recycled cardboard.

Anderson’s eco-friendly versions of the “Stan Smith,” “Campus,” “Superstar Shelltoe,” “ZX700,” and “ZX8000″ sneakers feature Adidas’s trademark parallel bars and perforations, logos whittled from masking tape, and even matching shoelaces cleverly fashioned form jute twine. With such attention to detail, sneaker fans are likely to lust after the upcoming release even more than before.
