The unlikely pairing sees the adilette get an all-over print that realizes the Superstar as if it were a slide. For example, the strap that goes over the foot is printed with a shell toe-esque design, while the footbed features components such as “laces” and a “tongue” design.
From a top-down perspective, the adilette really does look like a Superstar. The print is shadowed and somewhat 3D, meaning that it looks as if you’re about to put your foot into a Superstar, with the Trefoil-adorned heel at the back of the slide, Three Stripes in the middle, and laces at the front.
Despite its attempt to become a Superstar, the adilette is still a pair of slides. As a result, they are made from rubber and feature components such as a polyurethane bandage upper, as well as a soft, quick-drying finish.
