Adidas Honors Legendary Hip-Hop Trio Run-DMC With Laceless Superstars

Feb 5, 2020

Category: Style

Around the dawn of the 1970s, Adidas released its Superstar model, the first production low-top leather basketball shoe. The Superstar was worn by a number of high-profile NBA players including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, earning the leather low-tops a good deal of attention, though in 1986 the Superstar reached new levels of notoriety when Run-D.M.C. released their hit song celebrating the triple-striped sneakers with; My Adidas.

For the more-than-three-decades since the track was dropped, the legendary rap trio has been closely associated with the German athletic wear outfit, both in official and unofficial capacities. And now that the Superstar is celebrating half-century since its initial release, Adidas is marking the occasion via the release of a special laceless version of the shell-toed classic sneakers. Being offered with white with black stripes or black with white stripes — both of which boast gold “Superstar” script and branding on the tat tongue — the Adidas Superstar Laceless Shoes are scheduled for a February 13th release and have been priced at $90.
