Adidas Superstar Bounce History

The Adidas Superstar was first introduced in 1969 as a basketball shoe. It was the low-top variation of the basketball shoe called, Pro Model. It gained popularity in the 1970s. It was mostly called the “shell toe,” “shell tops,” or “shell shoes” due to the rubber shell-toe that is featured on the shoe. It was the first all-leather sport shoe.

This iconic silhouette of Adidas, throughout time, has been given iterations which include using other materials for its upper. This iteration gave the shoe a new look. They also made the shoe give off a better performance.

One of the variations of the Adidas Superstar is the Adidas Superstar Bounce. This version of the classic silhouette displays a mesh upper with hints of leather shown on the heel tab and the inner liner of the shoe. Additionally, the Bounce midsole gives it a new character where cushioning goes. The rubber shell toe of the shoe remained, giving the shoe its classic look.

The Bounce sole unit complements the whole look of the shoe. The shoe is offered in tonal colorways in an all-black and in an all-white. A few more colorways were released offering the masses more options in picking a pair of these classic kicks.
