SN3AKERS: Adidas Originals Adds a Snakeskin Superstar 80s to Its Retro Lineup

June 14, 2016

2016 is continuing on the revived adidas Originals Superstar trend that began last year. The classic silhouette of the sneaker has undergone a variety of transformations throughout the year, including an “adicolor” pack, a collaboration with BEAUTY & YOUTH and a recent iteration with a “Triaxial” upper. But adidas isn’t finished yet, as the brand has just unveiled a special premium edition of the Superstar 80s for women.

The ultra-luxe update uses the standard shelltoe sneaker as a base and adds a wealth of new material to the upper. It is constructed from a sliced nubuck which has been overlaid with an embossed snakeskin print. The shoe is also accented with premium leather overlays on the heel-tab and three-stripe. Its colorway is simple but clean; a smooth white with black contrasts.

Look out for the adidas Originals Superstar 80s snakeskin iteration to hit retail locations and online this Thursday, June 16.

In other adidas news, the brand is releasing a glow-in-the-dark Ultra Boost.
