These days, the adidas Superstar is strictly a lifestyle sneaker. But it began, of course, in 1969 as a performance basketball product—you know, before phrases like “performance basketball product” even existed. One of the most iconic sneakers in the history of footwear, the Superstar remains a fixture on feet worldwide.
The Superstar was originally manufactured in East France, so as its 45th anniversary approaches in 2015, adidas Originals is ready to celebrate with the “Made in France” Consortium edition Superstars. Luxurious leather, traditional distinctive rubber toe cap, crisp white upper and classic “Made in France” logo on the tongue, these things are fresh.
The special edition kicks will be available at Consortium retailers globally on December 12 for $220. Here’s the list of where to cop in the United States:
