adidas Superstar 80s “Clean Shoes”
Footwear Mar 08 2017
The 1980s wasn’t all about parachute pants, cassette tapes and an era when MTV still played music videos — they also had a huge amount to bring to the table, especially as far as shoes were concerned. The adidas Superstar is the stuff that legends are made of — originally launched in 1970 and incredibly popular for the next two decades, it was such a revolutionary basketball shoe that New York City hip hop heroes of the era even dedicated a whole song to them. How many shoes can you say that about, really?
Flash forward to today, and you have the adidas Superstar 80s “Clean Shoes” — an impossibly clean (hence the name) update that puts a fresh spin on an old classic. Featuring a beautiful Horween leather upper, striking leather lining and a classic rubber shell toe, the adidas Superstar 80s “Clean Shoes” is back and better than ever. The classic 3-stripes are traded out for a tonal “adidas Superstar” graphic adorned across the side, instantly letting everyone know both that you’re a legend in your own right and your shoes are nothing to be trifled with.
So the next time someone looks you in the eye and says that “the 1980s are over and they should stay buried”, just put that beautiful shoe of yours right in their face — the adidas Superstar 80s “Clean Shoes” will take care of the rest.
