It’s been 25 years since Happy Gilmore first came on to our screens, so New York store Extra Butter and Adidas are paying homage to the Adam Sandler-led comedy with a special anniversary collection of footwear, apparel and more. Centred around the film’s three main characters — Sandler’s Happy Gilmore, his coach Chubbs and his nemesis Shooter McGavin — the aim to represent each individual’s personalities and quirks through colour schemes and unique details.
The collection’s staple piece is a special UltraBOOST 1.0, inspired by the cocky Shooter McGavin. Dressed in yellow and equipped with white details, this UltraBOOST nods to McGavin’s signature “shooter” finger point with detail on its mudguard and also features a full-colour print of the fictional golfer on its insole. It’s accompanied by Adidas take on McGavin’s well known “Gold Jacket,” plus visors and caps. Christopher McDonald, the actor who played McGavin, even makes an appearance in the lookbook.
There’s also a new take on Adidas Golf‘s ZG21 performance shoe, inspired by Happy’s mentor Chubbs. It combines a crisp white colour scheme with throwback brogue panelling and fringe kiltie. If you look closely, you’ll even see gator skin and wood grain detailing for a nod to the alligator that bit Chubbs’ handoff. Performance gear like polos, shorts, pants and even an anorak boast embroidery that nods to Chubbs’ “it’s all in the hips” catchphrase.
Finally, Happy Gilmore, the star of the show is represented by an adilette BOOST Slide with course-ready green felt detailing, special stamps on the footbeds, an anniversary graphic on the strap and a full-length BOOST footbed. The sandal’s accompanying apparel is the most low-key of the bunch with graphic tees, sweatpants and even a cooler bag.
