The Adidas Originals Superstar is arguably the label’s most exemplary sneaker. Originally released as a basketball shoe back in the late sixties, the silhouette has gone on to revolutionise the world of footwear, infiltrating sub-cultures all over the world.
Featuring a tweaked adidas Originals motif, the archetypal rubber shell toe is accompanied by an all-over oriental design that boasts Chinese symbols that read courage, fairness and wisdom — three of the values that have been cherished since ancient times.
Arriving in a fresh cream colorway, adidas’ latest rework of the Superstar sneaker is available to buy now from the atmos Tokyo webstore, retailing at ¥14,000 ($134 USD).
