Adidas Superstar Metal Toe History

The Adidas Superstar is one of the most iconic and best-selling sneakers of the Adidas brand. This low-top variation of the Pro Model shoe was first manufactured in the year 1969 and rose to popularity in the 1970s. It is also the first low-top sports shoe that flaunted an all-leather upper. A rubber shell toe finishes the whole look of the shoe. Thus, earning the names: “shell tops,” “shelltoe,” and “shell shoes.”

The popularity of this silhouette also increased more when the hip-hop artists, Run DMC, wore these pair of kicks on stage without the laces and pulling the tongues out. This also led the shoe to be used more in the fashion category.

This silhouette was also given some classic Superstar iterations. One of the variations of the shoe was the Adidas Superstar Metal Toe. It showcases a leather upper, but instead of the rubber shell toe, a metal shell toe was used to finish the look of the shoe. The new design managed to keep the classic look of the silhouette and different colorways were released.
