From Futurecraft 3D to Boost to whatever Kanye West is doing, adidas deserve major props for really pushing to innovate and try new things in the sneaker industry. The Originals team is developing their own lane, one that promotes an idea of original expression and individual creativity. However, at the end of the day adidas is still a brand that loves to go back to its roots as it did here with mono colorways of the adidas Superstar. Just look at many of their most popular silhouettes; many of them are likely older than you and I.
In recent years, both the Stan Smith and the Superstar received popularity boosts through partnerships with creative luminaries like Pharrell–the “Supercolor” collection always comes up whenever I’m talking to athletes about their favorite sneakers to wear right now. And now available at Champs Sports are monochromatic styles for the adidas Superstar that are playing off that aesthetic.
The adidas Superstar has managed to stay relevant over the course of multiple generations. For that, you can thank the 3-Stripes brand for always coming with dope colorways. These three for the Superstar are three of the best over the last few months and should find a way into your rotation this year. Copping Jordan retros and grabbing your favorite player’s signature sneaker is always fun, but you do need a few pairs that can work with anything. That versatility is the main draw with a sneaker like the Superstar.
