Adidas is taking the classic Superstar 80s

The single most popular sneaker seems to be the adidas superstar, a style that has developed a devoted fandom in the past few years. One reason for the shoe’s popularity is its versatility: The Superstar is a kick that works with just about any clothing item, from a casual dress to jeans to a suit. Several other classic styles from the German footwear company have also proven their staying power, including the Stan Smith, which can be purchased with on-trend Velcro fasteners, and the Gazelle, which comes in chic colors like turquoise, millennial pink and mint green.Other classic styles remain popular, like both the low-top and high-top versions of Converse All Stars.

adidas is taking the classic Superstar 80s and stripping it down leaving it only with the bare essentials.Taking the “Decon” look that has recently been spotted on the Air Jordan 2, this iteration of the adidas superstar 80s comes constructed out of a one-piece leather on the upper for a clean aesthetic. Adding to the clean look of the sneaker is laser etching on the shell toe and the three stripes branding on the side panels. The two color options include Running White and Core Black with both of them being finished off with off-white rubber soles and brown detailing on the tongue branding and heel tab.

Adidas said in a press release statement: Manchester United fans of all ages will recognise the adidas superstar bold graphic pattern from the 1990-92 away jersey that defined football shirt design for an era. Connecting the past to the future, the new kit pays homage to the historic design, celebrating the rich history of the club.The graphic design of the original kit has been reimagined on a black backdrop with white hues, with the classic adidas three stripes, club badge and adidas logo all in white. A crew-neck collar gives the kit a modern makeover, making it a jersey that’s as much at home on the streets as it is on the pitch.

The BAPE x NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas Superstar isn’t just any old retro adidas offering with name brands slapped on to added effect either, but a completely retooled adidas Superstar Boost featuring a modernized upper complete with a slip-on construction, an adidas NMD-inspired heel, and a retooled midsole featuring additional Boost technology that shows through on the medial side’s midsole arch.The knit upper looks like the three stripe’s new circular knit technology championed on the adidas Pure Boost model while a bolstered hairy suede contrasts leading into the traditional shell-toe. It’s the perfect combination of both old and new.
