Adidas Blondey Superstar Shoes in Core Black and FTW White. The monochrome follow-up to his similarly styled release from late 2019, this clear TPU remastering of the iconic Superstar 80’s profile taps into team-rider and British artist Blondey McCoy’s irrefutable aesthetic and passion for boundary-pushing innovation. Remaining loyal to the classic shell-toe silhouette, this rehashed skate shoe features transparent quarter-panels, a fully vulcanised all-black rubber outsole and tonal shell-toe detailings for added impact resistance. A foam insole cushions each and every step for a comfortable day-on-day wear, whilst the bold-black flattened laces across the traditional 6-eyelet lacing system casts a striking contrast to the crisp-white adidas sidewall stripes. Added sidewall perforations provide a greater sense of circulatory value, whilst the gold-foil commemorative ‘Blondey’ detailing delivers a like-for-like finish comparable to its white and gum release from over a year ago. Classic ‘adidas’ Trefoil branding decorates the tongue and heel-moustache, whilst the design’s stark-white trims seal this timeless iteration of the Superstar 80 with a subtle reference to OG soccer-shoe stylings.
A sneaker close to his heart and his own model of choice whilst skating, the adidas Superstar continues to stand the test of time with its traditional composure and hard-wearing appeal. An icon of the ages with an honourable 50-year legacy to its name, Blondey McCoy’s latest rendition of the ageless Superstar is one inspired by contemporary aesthetics and a modernised approach to skate tradition.
