The adidas Superstar has always been a cornerstone in sneaker culture, garnering widespread popularity following Run D.M.C.'s endorsement many years ago. Its iconic design and historical significance have made it a favorite for many sneaker enthusiasts worldwide. The XLG version of the adidas Superstar, distinguished by its enhanced proportions and platform sole, emerged as an innovative spin on the classic silhouette. Partnering with atmos, a brand that recently made headlines due to its US operations closure, the Superstar XLG is about to get a contemporary revision.
This collaborative effort on the Superstar XLG reveals a captivating all-black design, where subtle yet impactful red accents can be seen on the tongue. These red details highlight the expertly stitched boundary surrounding the debossed adidas branding. The shoe exhibits its signature shell toe, complemented by leather overlays and underlays. Plastic eyelets offer a slight deviation from the norm, adding another layer to its rich textural profile. A consistent black theme extends underfoot, with a matching midsole and outsole completing the aesthetic.
The atmos x adidas Superstar XLG will release October 20, 2023, via adidas in Asia and on October 21, 2023, via atmos Japan. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price remains TBA.
