adidas men’s limited edition standard fit white leather low top retro basketball/court sneaker. adidas pays homage to two of its most iconic sneakers—the Stan Smith and Superstar—with this special mashup “Superstan” model.
In 1965, adidas introduced a signature sneaker for French tennis player Robert Haillet that featured perforated holes in place of its traditional 3-Stripes branding and Haillet’s signature on the side. When Haillet retired in 1971, adidas tapped Stan Smith—the beast tennis player in the world—to wear the sneaker, only adding Smith’s now iconic signature and image to the design seven years later. Since then, with the help of early 2000s name drops from legendary rappers such as Jay-Z and countless copycats, the Stan Smith has transitioned from a performance tennis shoe into one of the most ubiquitous sneakers on the planet.
Introduced in 1969 as a performance basketball sneaker, the adidas Superstar first grew famous on the feet of legendary basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar before becoming a signature accessory of hip hop style in the 80s via Hollis, Queens natives Run-DMC.
