Last summer, adidas merged its top-selling sneaker of 2015 with breathable modern tech for the Superstar 80s Primeknit. Although that model has since sold out at most stores, it looks like it will be coming back soon with a few tweaks.

Here, the Superstar 80s Primeknit uses a bright "Lush Red" knitted upper with white detailing. Although its name is the same, there are a handful of differences between these and 2015's version. This new pair uses a wider knit construction, adds a pull tab at the heel, and swaps the Superstar's traditional tongue logo for a nod to the sneaker's style number (S75427), similar to what we saw on the Very Spezial Primeknit yesterday. 

As of now, these have only popped up overseas, but a U.S. release should be coming soon. If you can't wait, you can cop a pair now for right around $147 from spots like Foot District.
