adidas Teams Up with Bloody Angle for a Vinyl-Inspired Pair of Superstars

While adidas Sambas have been garnering all the headlines lately, the world-famous brand’s latest collaboration is dressing up a pair of its timeless Superstar silhouette. The latest partnership comes courtesy of Bloody Angle, a Tokyo-based vinyl café whose eclectic taste in music trickles down to its extremely unique shoes.

The predominantly black shoe is highlighted by bright red and light purple accents added to the inner walls, stripes, and heels. To say this take on the Superstar is unorthodox would be an understatement. As a way of acknowledging Bloody Angle’s affinity for vinyl, the shoe’s upper features a pleated synthetic leather pattern that is meant to evoke the inimitable look of a literal record. On top of that, the shoe has no laces, making them incredibly unique and easy to slip into.

This isn’t the first time these classic kicks have been reimagined without shoestrings. Just a couple of years ago, adidas released a pair of standard-colored, Run DMC-inspired Superstars as a nod to the pioneering rap group’s ‘80s-era fashion statement, but those were still more conservative than this latest collab. The new vinyl-inspired Superstars are fittingly finished off with red Bloody Angle branding and a record-shaped hangtag.

Whether you’re a record collector or a sneakerhead, you’re bound to have some strong feelings toward this upcoming collaboration. You can find the joint effort on atmos Tokyo’s site beginning June 16, where you will have the chance to purchase a pair via lottery for ¥17,600 (~$131).

Purchase: $131
