Czech sneaker store Footshop has presented its first collaborative project with adidas Originals: a rugged Superstar dubbed the “Blueprinting.” Inspired by the sturdy construction of hiking footwear and traditional folk methods of pattern printing in Footshop’s home country, the “Blueprinting” is a unique piece of footwear that’s ready for the trails or the streets.
Built from a creamy white leather to ensure a premium feel, the “Blueprinting” uses boot-style silver eyestay hardware for rugged embellishment. There’s also navy blue trim on the midfoot’s Three Stripe graphic and rich indigo detailing on the co-branded tongue badges. Heel pieces add more dashes of indigo and also present a white patterned detail, at the center of which is a shoe. This print is replicated on the insoles as well. A line of navy blue contrast stitching runs around the midsole, and a toothed outsole rounds off the look. Each shoe comes with a special dustbag and an individually numbered box
The Footshop x adidas Superstar “Blueprinting” is limited to 520 pairs, and will release on Footshop’s webstore October 9 before hitting the brand’s retail outposts on October 10. The MSRP is set at €120 EUR (approximately $142 USD).
