This time around the frequent collaborators decided to showcase the Three Stripes’ iconic model for the silhouette’s 50th anniversary. The classic Superstar has been crafted from white leather, while additional multicoloured embellishments and a black heel tab help to spruce up the pair. The model’s signature shelltoe remains intact.
Pharrell Williams shared an official look at the forthcoming collaborative model via a post on his personal IG account just a few hours prior. Additionally, for those who where paying close attention another pair were seen on Williams’ feet in adidas Originals‘ recent Change Is a Team Sport campaign launch film, which sports a white Primeknit upper. Back in 2015, the duo dropped a total of 50 tonal colorways of the Superstar with the “Supercolor” pack.
adidas‘ OG Superstar is having its moment in 2020, releasing in a number of highly-sought-after renditions and collaborations, and now it returns as the Superstar Pure “London.”
This limited-edition take on the classic white-and-black sneaker is crafted from premium leather, earning its Pure signature for its clean and smooth look. Instead of the classic Three Stripes found on the upper, adidas has perforated them into the mid-panel — much like the upcoming Superstan — and has also buffed the leather to give it a soft touch and shine.
Branding comes in the form of a small rectangle towards the rear-quarter, simply stating “London” and “Superstar.” The tongue is embossed with tonal adidas branding, while the black leather heel sport the signature Trefoil logo painted in gold. adidas’ premium shell toe 0ffering is complete with a set of flat white laces and leather branded insoles.
