For those of you who like to spend their free time at beaches and lakes – or are left dreaming of such spots – adidas Consortium have released a luxe, lightweight iteration of the iconic Superstar 80s for August 2015.
Utilising the sportswear giant’s revolutionary Primeknit technology, the Consortium Superstar 80s Primeknit stays true to the OG’s base construction, with the colours kept to the classic combinations of black/white and white/black.


The three stripes are transferred onto the fabric, a consistent detail in the Primeknit product family and key-factor in reducing the overall weight of the shoe. Another nod to the Superstar’s heritage can be found in the old-school tongue logo which is set in gold on black and black on white.
As a hybrid this Primeknit version of the Superstar is a well-balanced fusion of an iconic, old-school, basketball style with the most state-of-the art in production technologies

Look for the adidas Superstar 80s Primeknit online at on August 1st.
