The Superstar is one of the most iconic adidas Originals silhouettes and harks back to a simpler time. From the rubberised shell-toe to classically clean 3-Stripes, it never gets old. When Japanese cult clothing and design company BAPE designed its own take on this classic in 2003, it became an instant icon that spawned queues at the few destinations where it was available. B-Sides does not deviate far from the previously released model, coming in a neutral suede upper with navy stripes and ankle collar. A gold foil BAPE logo sits on the tongue, as well as an embossed black logo on the heel print. Characteristically BAPE, the inner sole is covered in a camouflage pattern. The BAPE x Superstar 80s is a timeless classic and sure to be in high demand once again.
The B-Sides collection will be available at BAPE, in the no6 and no74 concept stores in London and Berlin respectively and selected adidas Originals stores.
