Editor’s Notes: Following the release of his cream-colored pair, designer Eric Emanuel is gearing up to launch another colorway of adidas' '80s-flavored Rivalry Hi, inspired by New York's affinity for the game of basketball. This particular iteration is also a nod to the famed "Team Series" from the late 1980s, done up in bold blue and bright orange, à la the New York Knicks.

In celebration of the New York Rivalry Hi, Emanuel and adidas have created a pop-up gallery exhibition, showcasing basketball's influence on fashion, art, photography and more. The Eric Emanuel-curated space serves as an interactive gallery with city-inspired installations, thus bringing the shoe to life.

The gallery (158 Mercer Street, New York, NY) will be open to the public today from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m.

You can look forward to Eric Emanuel's New York-centric Rivalry Hi releasing at select adidas retailers on Friday, February 8.
