Know Your Sneaker Terms: MRBAILEY® by YARMS



Sneaker enthusiasts, this one’s for you—a legend in the scene, Daniel Bailey, is receiving an exclusive tribute collectible sculpted in the signature style of YARMS Studio! This releases ahead of an exciting collaboration between Mr. Bailey and Adidas Originals: The Ozlucent, a pair of conceptual sneakers inspired by moon jellyfish.

The YARMS collection pays homage to influential figures in different fields. By referencing their most iconic traits, characteristics, and contributions, each collectible is easily recognizable and distinctive. 

Three things immediately pop out for MRBAILEY® by YARMS—his black beanie, round glasses, and black beard. Together, they form part of Mr. Bailey’s signature style. 

Other details include swappable shoes, between his two Adidas Originals collaborations, his tattoo at the back of his head, as well as the translucent, one-of-a-kind shoe box in his hands—inspired by jellyfish.
