Defintiv not only sports field-suitable! Superstar becomes trend

First Nikes Air Max, then white Stan Smith - and now? In 2015, the Adidas Superstar gets ready to become the # 1 trend sneaker. Who wears it already and why we are so excited? Here!

Run DMC rapped as early as 1986 in the song "My Adidas " : "My adidas and me, close as can be, make a mean team, my adidas and me ..." Today, the hip-hopper would have their rap for a few stanzas extend: Because the success story of the Adidas models continues. Last year, sneaker "Stan Smith" was the hit, now the black and white " superstar " is catching up.

The model with the iconic three stripes has just turned 45, looks damn sexy and is for many currently the greatest sneaker in the world: the superstar of Adidas . Arthur Hoeld, General Manager at Adidas Originals, commented on Shoe Revial: "Superstar and Stan Smith are two icons from the Adidas archives, both with a strong personality and various stories to tell, the Superstar is one of our most popular shoes, this classic is high time to celebrate! " In the appropriate Superstar campaign, human superstars like Pharrell Williams or Rita Ora celebrate their sneaker counterpart. We, too, like to be there, because in 2015 the motto is again: I wear my Adidas when I rock the beat!

Superstar with coated leather upper, iconic rubber toe construction, breathable mesh lining and white rubber cupsole with black stripes. Below: model in white. Both from Adidas, each about 90 euros.
