No matter what time of year it is, sneakers are always in season. So it should come as no surprise that adidas is here to lace the cool kids of spring with its latest line of shell toe Superstars. The brand with the three stripes created these classic leather kicks in 1970, and 50 years later they’re still a crucial part of street style and culture.
Adidas’ most recent Superstars release features the shell toe silhouette in four colorways, including black on white with gold accents; black on black; white on black with gold accents; and white on white, all boasting enhanced durability and comfort. Not to mention that these kicks match almost anything.
As we salute these latest additions to the Superstar legacy, peep all the different ways you can rock your shell toes this spring.
In the streets, on the court, or chillin' in a field, these classic shoes’ sleek, familiar design is hard to miss, especially when superstar athletes, hip-hop groups, and top notch skaters can’t move without them. (We know you can name a few.) No matter where you are, adidas’ shell toe sneakers match anything and everything. Paired with everything from a dark beanie and overalls to a pair of neutral joggers and windbreaker, Superstar style is limitless.
When assembling your fit, think of Superstars as your canvas, your base. You can dress 'em up or dress 'em down. Really, you can rock your three stripes just about any way you like. This spring, blend the best dark and light pieces from your closet with a pair of shell toes to create a custom look that's sure to make you stand out instead of fading into the background.
Originally released as a basketball shoe, hip-hop icons like Rev Run of Run DMC brought the adidas Superstar silhouette to the forefront of pop culture in the mid-'80s, even releasing "My Adidas," a hit ode to their favorite kicks. But even today, Superstars remain ready to hit the pavement, worn with cargos, jeans, joggers or anything in between. With a half-century of history behind their name, there’s no question that Superstars are a street style staple.
Adidas’ new line of classic Superstars retail for $80 and are available for purchase at adidas.com.
