From it’s humble beginnings on the basketball courts to becoming a regular fixture in popular culture time and time again, the Superstar has truly become royalty within sneaker culture. Since its introduction to the game in 1969, the Superstar has gone from hardwood floors to concrete streets to red carpets and back again.
Like many of adidas’ most revered archive silhouettes, the Superstar was originally released under ‘La marque aux 3 bandes’ and manufactured in the Detwiller area of East France.
Warming up to the Superstar’s 45th anniversary in 2015, adidas Originals have framed up with Ateliers Heschung, a family run factory who manufactured in the Detwiller area of East France.
Constructed in luxurious premium leather, the Superstar’s upper is stitched to its distinctive toe cap and tooling with traditional hand-held techniques. In keeping with the original, the three stripe and unbranded heel-tab are executed in smooth black leather whilst the crisp white upper is complimented by a subtle vintage ivory tone throughout the shell-toe, outsole and soft leather linen.
Proudly presenting its stamp of high quality and materials is the classic “Made in France” logo on the tongue.
