Adidas Consortium Superstar 80’s Pack

 In News


“My adidas … Got blue and black, cause I likes to chill and yellow and green when it’s time to get ill.”
Der adidas Superstar, der 1970 seinen ersten Geburtstag feierte, ist zweifelsfrei einer der erfolgreichsten Sneaker und Design Klassiker überhaupt. Ein großen Teil dieses Erfolges verdankt die Sneaker Ikone mit der berühmten Shell Toe Kappe definitiv der New Yorker Hip Hop und Graffiti Bewegung aus den frühen 80er Jahren. Die 3 neuen Consortium Superstars stellen eine Hommage an genau diese Bewegung dar. Ab dem 8. Juni ist das Pack bei No.74(Berlin), No.6(London) und ausgewählten Consortium Händlern erhältlich!

“In 1969, when the Superstar was first unleashed, New
York was beginning to establish itself as the epicentre
of graffiti culture. As the volume, detail and size of
graffiti tags grew over the subsequent decade-and-ahalf,
so did the status of these low top versions of the
Pro Model basketball shoe.
The Superstar, the first ever leather low tops, was
originally championed solely by top-level ball players
but this iconic shell toe shoe eventually transcended
the court, making its way onto the streets and
becoming an inherent and vital part of youth culture.
In the early 80s, the worlds of grafitti and hip-hop,
both with strong foundations in the Bronx, began
to become intertwined as they both started to
make mainstream waves. The shoe of choice for
many of the major protagonists of these NY-based
movements? The Superstar.”
