"The shoe was dedicated to an incredible person, Jam Master Jay. He, along with Run DMC, helped make the Adidas Superstar Shell Toe what it is today. I think the choice of black was perfect as well, because if anybody knew Jay, black was his favorite color and black was what you usually saw him in.  adidas really gave the shoe over to him, they didn't try to worry about keeping adidas qualities. The shoe really is a true dedication to him. I've got the jacket as well. They went all the way in on this project, and I was happy to see that."
