Adidas Superstar 80s History

Before bulky basketball shoes were the norm, sleek and street-style sneakers on the court were the standard. Among those that really shone the brightest even up to this day is the Adidas Superstar.

The first designs of the Superstar came out in 1969. It wasn't long enough NBA and NCAA players started to notice the Superstar reaching, at some point, some 75 percent of the players with the rubber shell toe feature. Over the years, however, it wouldn't be long for the Superstar to be noticed by a whole new different audience.

The iconic silhouette of the basketball shell toe was then re-released by Adidas Originals in early 2015, reliving the glory days of this classic sneaker that became a cult favorite of the hip-hop scene in the 1980s. Re-released with pony-haired 3-stripes, the shoes maintained their classic look never deviating from the original silhouette of the clamshell toe and herringbone pattern cup sole.
