Looks like a classic, feels like something else.

adidas Originals have introduced the cult comfort of boostâ„¢ to their true original: the Superstar. Utilising the compact EVA foam material - a modern innovation in comfort - and applying it to the Shelltoe design has thankfully not strained the recognisable aesthetics of an icon. adidas have modified the sole unit, coring out the traditional rubber and PU make-up and injecting a full-length boost midsole with an exposed wedge peering out from the medial arch and through a windowless outsole gap. Finer points include a premium leather upper on the men's OG edition complemented by Gold-Foil branding while metallic finishes on the Patent leather uppers of the women's edition round out the pack with aplomb.

To concide with the arrival of Boost, adidas have also remastered the Superstar with their lightweight Bounce foam. The Superstar Bounce PK is a complete redux of the first original, leaving the only discernible feature of shoe it's signature rubber shelltoe. The serrated Three-Stripes, heel tab and branding is replaced by a two-piece Primeknit woven upper with subtle texture differences and padded with a leather sockliner. A Bounce wedge midsole is then secured to a bonded heritage tread that completes the monochromatic duo. A second coming of the Superstar? It could be, but it's more likely these latest Shelltoes are the most comfortable pairs of superstars manufactured to date.
