In 1969, the Adidas brand introduced the Adidas Superstar that rose up in popularity during the 1970s and became one of the brand’s most iconic silhouettes. It was the first sports shoe that was covered in an all-leather upper and the low-top variation of the basketball shoe, Pro Model. The silhouette had gained even more popularity when hip-hop artists, Run DMC, took the sneaker on stage tongues out and without laces, making the shoe a fashion option.

The classic Adidas Superstar shoes have received some iterations throughout its existence. Early in 2017, the silhouette was given the Bounce sole unit and days later; the Adidas Superstar Bounce Primeknit was also introduced. In this version of the shoe, a Primeknit upper is covering the upper instead of the mesh upper that is featured on the Adidas Superstar Bounce. The shoe retains its rubber shell toe for the classic look to remain.
