Most likely, yes. If a sneaker could have a mid-life crisis, this would be it. The adidas Superstar is coming on 50, but is definitely still young at heart, with thematic makeups including everything from faux-gold to reptile pelts. Here, it goes for the high-visibility treatment in what adi are calling ‘Solar Yellow’.
Searing shades aside, it’s a formulaic formulation of the classic sneaker, down to its leather construction, raised Three Stripe branding, and rubber toe bumper. But, they are very bright indeed.
Alas, if that Shelltoe was made from metal (which they’ve done before), these might just pass muster at your local construction site. Out now from adidas.
