the adidas Superstar shoe has been going strong since 1969
The Superstar Baratas celebrated its 30th anniversary not too long ago, but has since taken a backseat to a number of silhouettes in the three stripe’s catalog that’s now more focused on innovation and new technologies than anything else. That doesn’t mean that the 80s icon hasn’t been revamped itself, as adidas Originals is ushering in the New Year with two premium “Metallic Toe” takes on the Superstar’s legendary shelltoe construction.The adidas Superstar Gold Toe and adidas Superstar Silver Toe takes the precious metal route to task while each colorway features smooth white or black leather uppers for a more traditional juxtaposition. Even the tongue branding featuring the trefoil logo is revamped with metallic prints while the side panel ‘Superstar’ wordmark gets a matching gold or silver finish. What do you think of the look?Check out more detailed shots of the adidas Superstar Gold Toe & Silver Toe options below and know that this women’s exclusive will be available come January 2017 at select shops.

If you thought by now adidas Originals would have ran out of ideas for the Stan Smith Mujer, you were wrong. The Three Stripes find yet another stylish new way to present one of their most classic sneakers of all time, this time featuring the Stan Smith in a fully woven upper. Looking like any old pair of Stans at first, especially in the OG white and green colorway, you’ll quickly notice the basket-like woven upper that still retains the iconic original silhouette. Along with the classic white and green color combo, the woven Stan Smith also debuts in white/navy and a reversed navy/white. All are arriving at adidas Originals retailers overseas now, so expect them in the US at adidas.com and select shops soon.
The ladies-only adidas Zx Flux Mujer drops this fall in an all-new blue colorway, with just a touch of pink thrown in. The Primeknit upper features a unique geometric graphic stitched into the upper with a series of randomly placed stripes and dots, while pink striping is found at the elastic collar. Look for your pair at select adidas Originals retailers soon.
The Nmd R1 Mujer Primeknit “Sun Glow” was one of the more sought after general releases of the adidas NMD this winter.

Today we have some good news: those of you hoping to get the adidas NMD R1 Sun Glow will have another shot on the day after Christmas morning, as select international retailers like Germany’s own The Good Will Out will be stocking the pair in a full-size run.The adidas NMD R1 Sun Glow benefits from that premium woven Primeknit construction with an aesthetic reminiscent of the early “Glitch Camo” releases. The high-contrast combination of pastel pink and charcoal grey is accented by a gradient three stripe branding that fades from Dark Grey to lighter shades for a unique twist.
