adidas have been raiding their archives and bringing us treat after treat for the past year; and with classics including the Stan Smith, Gazelle and Hamburg, it’s clearly been quite the success. Shooting in to grab our attention now is the iconic Superstar silhouette.

Starting out as a basketball sneaker in the 70s, this popular profile has transitioned from its sporting heritage on the court and in skate style to being one of the most prominent looks in the world of hip-hop, becoming an essential look in street style around the world. If they’re good enough for Run DMC, they’re good enough for us, right? That’s right; you can touch these.

We’ve picked a couple of our favourites that we have here at schuh – there’s a style for those who prefer a more clean aesthetic with the crisp white and black leather to those who like to push the boundaries a bit more, like the edgy faux-snakeskin foil update.

Whatever shell-toes you prefer, we’re predicting huge things for this humble retro style. A regular feature on high-end blogs and fashion magazines, the adidas Superstar has gone from strength to strength this past year. With a collaboration due with legend Pharrell Williams, things are only set to get better for the celebrated look.
