Adidas Superstar are by far the most recognizable shoes on the streets: usually white with three contrasting black stripes on each side, they jump out at you because of their typical shell toe. But let us take a step back to recall the history of these beauties: these terrific Adidas sneakers took the first steps in the NBA of the early 70s, featuring Bucks and Lakers star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the greatest marketing asset. Even though Kareem contributed in making these athletic shoes popular, we had to wait for the hip-hop trio RUN DMC to see the Superstar at the top of the world; these sneakers became immortal and timeless, providing a visual figure coherent with the topics treated in the lyrics and wearing Adidas Superstars without laces, because this was the look forced upon people in jail. The shoes structure, then, is as simple as effective: not only the traditional upper in leather, but also mesh, textile, canvas, Primeknit and much more, without forgetting the three stripes on the sides. The shell toe is easy to be customized too, with metal, glittery and colorful options to unleash our creativity. Simply the most sold Adidas sneaker ever - must surely mean something after all.
