Color: core black/ftw white/cwhite
2015 is THE year of the Superstar, one of adidas' most iconic silhouettes. To celebrate this memorable occasion the shoes have been executed in a wide range of new colorways and materials.
At a time when we like to spend our free time at beaches and lakes – or are left dreaming of such spots – the Superstar is released as a lightweight summer version. While the base construction stays true to the 1980s original, keeping with the off-white color on sole and shell toe, the classic leather upper is replaced by adidas' revolutionary Primeknit fabric technology. A perfect choice for the warmer season as the material offers high breathability as well as enhanced moisture wicking capabilities.
For the premiere of the Primeknit technology on the Superstar, the colors are kept to the classic combinations of black/white and white/black. The three stripes are transferred onto the fabric, a consistent detail in the Primeknit product family and key-factor in reducing the overall weight of the shoe. Another nod to the Superstar's heritage can be found in the old-school tongue logo which is set in gold on black and black on white. As a hybrid this Primeknit version of the Superstar is a well-balanced fusion of an iconic, old-school, basketball style with the most state-of-the art in production technologies.
