adidas currently lays claim to several silhouettes that have been able to withstand Father Time’s enduring wrath; two such models being the Stan Smith and Superstar, respectively. Brand new to the label’s historic catalog, is this hybridized variant, dubbed the Superstan, combining elements from both aforementioned sneakers. Equally iconic in their own right, each has undergone a myriad of reworks, not only from the Three Stripes brand themselves, but at the hands of some talented creatives to boot.
The accompanying visuals, ironically enough, features Stan Smith in his Florida-area home, as the 2-time Grand Slam tennis champ can be seen sporting the sneakers alongside a tonal adidas tracksuit. Recognizable elements borrowed from each heritage sneaker come together on a new, yet instantly familiar backdrop. The sleek, minimalistic uppers of the Stan Smith combines with the bulky shell toe portion of the OG Superstar, resulting in a new lifestyle-oriented shoe that easily tethers on to any casual wardrobe.
Set to a retail price of $120 USD, the new adidas Originals Superstan will make its debut on February 1 through adidas’s official web store. Meanwhile, in other relevant Stan Smith news, HUMAN MADE fashioned its own version of the throwback classic.
