The shoe's upper is coated in "Jade Green," a hue that is reminiscent of his father's workwear uniform. In addition to the colors, the fabrications blend a mix of suede and canvas, while a leather lining ties all of the paneled detailing together.Rounding off the design, the customary Three Stripe branding and the heel section is adorned in "Off White," with the rubber outsole coming in a dirty-brown tone.You can take a closer look at Darryl Brown's adidas Campus 80 above and it is available now on the official adidas website.In other news, take a look at the eBay x Nike SB Dunk Low "Sandy Bodecker."
