Adidas Superstar Vulc ADV History
Released in 1969, the Superstar was originally designed with the basketball sport in mind. The shoe utilized leather for its upper with an exaggerated toecap in the front, which was a construction that was unheard of at the time of its release. As a result of the unconventional use of materials, the shoe caught the attention of professional basketball players and, eventually, the masses. Moreover, a hip-hop band called the Run D.M.C further popularized the shoe as they made it their unofficial footwear and made a song inspired by the Superstar.
The Adidas Superstar was held in such high regard that it naturally crossed over from the courts to the streets. The late 80s street scene gave rise to an emerging skate culture which, not surprisingly, embraced the Superstar as a shoe suitable for skating.
The skate culture became so big that Adidas had to create a line that caters exclusively to the skate market. Original silhouettes were specially developed to provide adequate comfort and support to fit the physical demands of the sport. An example of this is the Adidas Superstar Vulc ADV.
The Adidas Superstar Vulc ADV is based on the original editions skated by Kareem Campbell, Joey Bast, Drake Jones, and Richard Angelides back in the 90s. The Vulc ADV is a slimmer and lighter version of the originals to provide better skate performance.
Adidas Superstar Vulc ADV Style
The Adidas Superstar Vulc ADV’s suede upper adds a more stylish look to the iconic silhouette. It is available in fun colors that can be paired with any casual outfit. Pair it with shorts, pants, or joggers for the ultimate laidback cool outfit.
Fit & Sizing
The Adidas Superstar Vulc ADV is only offered in men’s sizes. The gentlemen can choose from sizes 4 to 14 while the ladies can order 1.5 sizes down. The shoe is reported to run a bit bigger than the usual, so it is recommended to fit the shoe in person before purchasing.
The Adidas Superstar Vulc ADV is an icon built to ride with its slimmed down silhouette and super lightweight. The shoe features a drop-in ADIPRENE sockliner for comfort and cushioning without sacrificing board feel. The iconic rubber shell toe serves as an abrasion resistant material against the board’s harsh grip tape. Lastly, the shoe’s outsole is designed with Vector Traction for great board control.
- The Adidas Superstar Vulc ADV’s upper is made of suede except for one colorway, the white/black. This colorway’s upper is crafted from leather.
