The Adidas HAGT Superstar is available in sizes 5 to 14 for men only. Because it runs big, getting a size smaller is recommended. Women who wish to get this kick should go down 1.5 sizes from their usual pair.

Strut the streets like a superstar with this fashionable kick. Highlight its iconic shape and shell-toe with a pair of joggers pants or cropped jeans. This low-top Adidas Superstar sneaker can also be worn with sports dresses and even midi skirts.

This sneaker features a soft leather upper with a lace-up closure. A cheeky “Have A (Trefoil) Time” can be seen on the lining and collar of this shoe. The bone-colored midsole comes with a debossed logo hit on its lateral side.

Have a Good Time, also known as HAGT, was conceptualized in 2010 in Nakameguro, Tokyo. It is famous for its casual vibe and laid-back designs. They quickly established a large number of followers as one of Tokyo’s fastest rising streetwear brands. This led to their collaboration with Adidas in 2018.

In 2019, HAGT collaborated with Adidas again to re-create their 2 classic silhouettes, namely the Gazelle Super and Superstar 80s.  These special-edition sneakers are dressed in fresh, eye-catching colors and co-branded detailing. The Superstar 80s iteration is dressed in a black-and-white upper combo with a graphic lining. The tongue also features a “have a good time” print instead of the usual Trefoil branding found in the Adidas Superstar 80s model.

  • The Adidas HAGT Superstar 80s was launched in January 2019.
