‘My Adidas, walk through concert doors / And roam all over the coliseum floors’

Sneaker: SUPERSTAR SHOES

 

 

THE AUTHENTIC LOW TOP WITH THE SHELL TOE.

Originally made for basketball courts in the '70s. Celebrated by hip hop royalty in the '80s. The adidas Superstar shoe is now a lifestyle staple for streetwear enthusiasts. The world-famous shell toe feature remains, providing style and protection. Just like it did on the B-ball courts back in the day. Now, whether at a festival or walking in the street you can enjoy yourself without the fear of being stepped on. The serrated 3-Stripes detail and adidas Superstar box logo adds OG authenticity to your look.

 

‘I don’t know if it’s the name or the BAPE gum bottoms.’

Sneaker: BAPE COURT STA

These low top BAPE COURT STA designs come in a more muted Mist Grey / Royal Purple color way, or the light and fresh Light Grey / Cream. The grey and purple design has a suede upper, while the grey and cream is done in leather, each hot pressed with the ABC CAMO pattern, and with the BAPE signature logo embroidered into the back heel of the midsole. Not only the pattern, but the unique use of tone-on-tone blocking and color contrasts really elevates this design into something as yet unseen in the BAPE STA™ collections.

 

‘Let’s take it to the basics, you in the midst of greatness / My Martin was a Maison, rocked Margielas with no laces’
