In the recent months, there seem to have a number of special Superstar Boost releases from adidas. Back in August, the Superstar was a part of a collaboration between adidas Originals and Hender Scheme, which also included the Micropacer and NMD. Any avid sneaker will know that Hender Scheme became popular for ripped off, vachetta tan leather recreations of popular sneaker models. Thus, the Hender Scheme x adidas Originals Superstar was entirely made up of vachetta tan leather, complete with leather laces and Gum Rubber soles. However, the latest special release of the adidas Superstar Boost is far more luxurious than ever before, designed in collaboration with Limited EDT.
Kasina, a clothing and sneaker shop in South Korea, celebrated its 20 anniversary earlier this month, on October 6th. adidas apparently decided to collaborate with Kasina, allowing the latter to design a special iteration of the Superstar Boost, which is perhaps the cleanest one to date. Using premium, clean White-colored leather for its uppers, the “Three Stripes” branding was embroidered onto the sides along with “1997,” the year of the store’s opening. Completing its minimalistic look, the sneaker was also given Gum Rubber soles and Tan-colored leather inner lining. Additionally, the right tongue featured adidas Consortium branding and the left one sported Kasina’s logo.
Limited EDT is one of the leading sneaker boutiques in Singapore and its latest collaborative release with adidas Consortium is nothing short of exquisite. It turns out that Limited EDT has had renovations done, inspired by bank vaults, and this Superstar rendition is being released to commemorate them. Primarily, it features premium Burgundy-colored leather uppers. Since the origins of the Superstar can be traced back to Southeast Asia, this luxurious iteration featured colorful floral embroidery on the sides, inspired by Batik. To mimic the appearance of classic leather sofas, its toe boxes sport an almost tonal gradient, while it is equipped with contrasting, clean White-colored soles.
Concidentally, the Kasina x adidas Consortium Superstar Boost makes its worldwide retail debut on October 21st, which is also the date for the presale of the Limited EDT x adidas Consortium Superstar in Singapore. Fortunately, the Limited EDT x adidas Consortium Superstar will eventually arrive at adidas Consortium retailers all around the world on October 28th, 2017.
