Throughout this summer 2019 adidas is launching a variety of Home of Classics. At StylePilot we really like footwear. So, we couldn’t be more excited to try the Superstar 80s from the three stripes brand.
In adidas own words: “Viewed as a whole, Home of Classics is a documentation of some of adidas Originals’ most influential designs, and a true testament to the timelessness of the brand’s craftsmanship that provides longevity for the wearer, regardless of their choice of experience or expression”.
The Home of Classics collection is inspired by the brand’s 50 years of experience in craftsmanship, sport, and culture. You cannot avoid feeling the nostalgia browsing this collection.
Home of Classics is led by the Stan Smith, Continental 80 and the Superstar 80s. The lineup also features the Supercourt, Torsion Comp, S.C. Premiere and A.R. Trainer.
The collection is made up of 10 timeless, court-inspired silhouettes. adidas Originals is paying tribute to its lineage of classic white leather sneakers that has now transcended several generations.
The perfect spot
Finding a location to photoshoot the Superstar 80s was the next mission.
These shoes keep the look classic with a coated leather upper. They feature all the authentic details, including zigzag edging on the 3-Stripes and the signature rubber shell toe.
A bit of history
This ’70s sneaker began life as a court-dominating B-ball shoe.
It wasn’t long before it was infiltrating the worlds of skateboarding and street style (not to mention the hip-hop main stage).
For decades, global creatives have regarded each sneaker as a blank canvas that carries them through experiences, granting the shoes greater meaning with every step. Symbolic of different stories and adventures, the Home of Classics collection has evolved through athletes, musicians, designers, style icons, and youth cultures alike that have re-interpreted each style to fit their lifestyle. Embracing how far people have taken, and will take, the brand’s timeless designs, the pack presents a line for the next generation of creators.
