The Superstar is probably one of the most famous silhouettes from the brand. Launched in 1969, the sneaker was intentionally made as a Pro Model basketball shoe. One of its distinctive features, which led to its moniker, is its "shell," "shell toe," or "shell tops." This characteristic functions not just for aesthetic purposes but also acts as a hard and protective layer for the toes.

The Adidas Superstar didn't instantly become popular. It took some time before athletes like Kareem Abdul Jabar took notice and placed the product on a pedestal. The fame of the Superstar led to numerous reiterations and has become one of the favorite silhouettes for collaboration pieces. Released on April 21, 2018 is the Adidas x Krooked Superstar Vulc, a skateboarding interpretation of the classic shell toe sneaker.
