In sneaker culture and fashion, the Adidas Originals Superstar a.k.a. ”Shell-toes” has legendary status. This iconic sneaker was first released in 1969, and it was the first basketball shoe to feature an all-leather upper. The Adidas Originals Superstar was early endorsed by basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and within the first few years the sneaker was being worn by over 75% of all NBA players. Fast forward to the mid 80s, OG hip hop group Run D.M.C. hit the stage in Superstars, without laces, released the song ”My Adidas”, and the shoe has been a staple in hip hop culture ever since.
The Adidas Originals Superstar fits true to size. At Shelta we recommend that you choose the size you normally wear.
