The adidas superstar noir has donned many highly-coveted ensembles over the past 50 years, but its arguably most iconic look has been the laceless style given to its original colorway by hip-hop enthusiasts in the 1980s. Back in February, the German sportswear behemoth honored Run-DMC – the trio often-associated with the no-laces-look – with the Superstar Laceless, which has recently added a simple, but bold “Cloud White/Blue/Soar Yellow” outfit to its roster. </br></br> Most likely, yes. If a sneaker could have a mid-life crisis, this would be it. The adidas superstar pas cher is coming on 50, but is definitely still young at heart, with thematic makeups including everything from faux-gold to reptile pelts. Here, it goes for the high-visibility treatment in what adi are calling ‘Solar Yellow’.Searing shades aside, it’s a formulaic formulation of the classic sneaker, down to its leather construction, raised Three Stripe branding, and rubber toe bumper. But, they are very bright indeed. </br></br> Nigo fans and hypebeasts rejoice: the adidas stan smith is getting a wider release after launching this past weekend. Official adidas ecomm imagery is seen above, meaning we should expect an online drop.With more angles visible, it really is a subtle collaboration. Built atop the OG white leather and green combination, the deviation occurs on the lateral and medial panels. The lateral side displays HUMAN MADE’s heart logo, punched in with the Stan Smith’s perforated branding. On the medial side, the dots are replaced with red-backed hearts to continue the motif. </br></br> There’s always something special about a shoe that has a good back story to it. You know, the ones that are steeped in history with several references in their design. It’s like a game of hide and seek.While movie-endorsed sneakers are more common today, this wasn’t the case in the early 2010s. You probably don’t remember the adidas zx flux femme that dropped in 2012. These were a tribute to the comedy/horror animated movie ParaNorman, and were limited to only 800 pairs. The promotional kicks were marketed as 'weird kicks for weird kids' and could only be won by those who submitted a weird photo of themselves as a kid as part of the ‘Weird Wins’ contest. </br></br> The adidas zx flux blanche is the beneficiary of parental good-looks mixed with today’s tech. The lightweight sneaker sees its one-piece mesh upper made up in a light green kept in place by a set of welded black stripes. Cutting through the verdant mix, the sneaker sits pretty atop a palate cleansing crisp white ZX 8000 outsole. The Flux is practically a wardrobe staple – especially in such a fresh colourway.
