Fans of Wes Anderson’s cult movie The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou have campaigned for years at Adidas to convince them to release a version of the customised Roms that Bill Murray wears in the film. 

Over the years, several petitions were filed, but back in 2005 Adidas played down the possibility of a special release. 

Well, it seems that the shoemaker has finally heard your voices.

During the We Love Green music festival in Paris, Adidas released 100 limited-edition, 1:1 pairs of the original trainer featured in the film, with its submarine-yellow shoelaces and iconic shades of blue on the three strip branding. 

The release was perfectly timed, it seems, as the festival featured Seu Jorge, the Brazilian musician whose smooth David Bowie music covers helped The Life Aquatic reach cult status. 

The Adidas Rom trainers were first released in 1959 as a training shoe but became incredibly popular in the 1980s. 

It isn’t clear whether Adidas will plan a wider release for the Rom Zissou.
