The adidas Originals Superstar changed the game of basketball forever. In the ’60s and ’70s, players in the NBA wore shoes constructed of mostly canvas. As a shoe for a game that involves quick cuts and changes in direction, the adidas Originals Superstar brought an all-leather upper for improved support, a signature shell-toe for protection, and an overall lighter silhouette than its canvas predecessors. After superstar Kareem Abdul-Jabaar started wearing a pair, the league took notice. adidas’ 3-Stripes officially took the hardwood by storm.
Technology evolved, and the adidas Originals Superstar’s court time may have come to an end, but its superstar status continued as the shell-toed classic was sported by some of hip-hops greats. Run-DMC, one of the hottest groups of the ’80s, donned the adidas Superstar on stage, giving the shoe a new level of streetwear status. The rap group’s recording of “My adidas” also helped turn the adidas Superstar into the epic sneaker staple it is today. With new collabs and colorways always on the drop, you can find the time-tested adidas Originals Superstar in men’s, women’s, and kids’ sizing right here at Foot Locker.
