The ADIDAS SUPERSTAR has returned! First released way back in 1969, the combination of leather upper and toeshell still goes hard almost 50 years later. When NBA and NCAA stars started prefering the Superstar to the canvas shoes they wore before, Adidas’ sneaker started gaining some serious momentum. With Kareem Abdul Jabbar being in his best years, millions of fans laid eyes on his shoes. Kids wanted to be like Kareem and – of course – got themselves the same shoes. But the hype trulyexceeded all expectations when Queens rap group Run DMC started wearing them combined with their iconic Adidas tracksuits. On stage performances were officially ‘Adidas approved’. They even honored the Superstar with their song ‘My Adidas’ on their LP ‘Raising Hell’. Loose laces and pulled up tongue – a true classic like no other. Now the SUPERSTAR 80’s celebrates its return and features a narrower silhouette, but doesn’t lose its flair at all. Thanks to the enormous success over the years, the ‘beat of the street’ isn’t done yet – and probably never ever will be.
