There are few shoes more recognizable in the history of sneakers than the Adidas Superstar. Simply put, the darn thing’s been around forever and simply never went out of style. It’s a style that’s truly aged well. You know what hasn’t aged well? It’s technical performance. That’s why it’s getting an update in the form of the Adidas Originals Superstar Boost, which pairs the iconic silhouette with the outfit’s most responsive cushioning material.
That’s right, Adidas’ first all-leather sneaker is getting the Boost treatment, allowing it to deliver the same energy return as other shoes fitted with the same tech, making it feel a whole lot better during active days running up and down the city. Whether you’re dressing up retro-style for a game at the local basketball courts or simply suiting up for day around town, this thing decks you in the same classic kicks people have worn since 1970.
The Adidas Originals Superstar Boost looks exactly like regular versions of the silhouette, especially when viewed at from a lateral angle. At the medial side, that’s where you’ll find an exposed section of the revamped cushion tucked away at the top of the outsole, allowing the silhouette to keep its original style while integrating better-performing tech. Features include a flexible leather upper, leather lining, a herringbone-pattern rubber cupsole, and the classic rubber shell toe.
Available in six colorways, the Adidas Originals Superstar Boost is priced at $120.
