The Superstar 80s is, for us, the definitive cut of a legendary shoe. We've been keen to play with this model for years - for 3Way, the opportunity arose. The problem with getting a Superstar to rework is that we found ourselves confused as to what to do with something so close to all our hearts without damaging that legacy, both personal and further reaching, and after all the attention it's had since it's 35th anniversary in 2005, what new looks can we bring to the table. First things first - this is a shoe that needs to be kept clean - there's no room for funny busines. A nap suede was the original sample fabric, but this ultimately switched this to off-white nubuck. Yes, it's easily marked, but keeping your shoes fresh has been part of the challenge for connoisseurs since the days when copping a pair of Shelltoes was a Herculean challenge.

Correlating suede 3-Stripes and heeltab, a black stitch along the midsole matching the top metal eyelet, a perforated premium nubuck lining and matching suede footbed finished with emroidery are 'quiet' details that work as a whole to make this our vision of Superstar perfection.

Then there's the emboss on the heel depicting a knotted lace that represents four minds, as our three team partners made their mark on this Crooked Tongues creation. Oh yeah - we haven't mentioned the killer application yet. When the Crooked Tongues BK3 adicolor Century Lo was released to great success in May 2006, the all-black shoe carried our brainchild - a set of removable tongues, a kind of play on our name, that fixed in via a Velcro fastening, packagewith matching laces for completely different looks using a single base shoe.

Thanks to the designers at adidas Originals, what sounded like gimmickry worked well. Since then, it's a CT technology that's been waiting in the wings to strike again. It's back on this Superstar, the perfect candidate for our 'swap' application. Each team store was allocated its own embossed tongue - VA opted for a grey and yellow, D-Mop went for a snake-effect pattern that incorporates browns, ACU chose green and we opted for Burgundy as a trademark colour. A more impartial option comes in the shape of a black one that carries all the names. A collection of laces, including an off-white pair, greys, burgundies, greens and blacks means a perfect match, and for starters, 5 individual looks in 1 package without any compromises on quality.

THIS MODEL IS TEAM RETAILER, EXCLUSIVE TO CROOKED TONGUESAND ONE ADIDAS STORE OUTSIDE OF ASIA.

Quite possibly the ugliest Adidas trainers ever made imo, good deal though! I imagine this is the kind of thing you could buy now and sell on for a profit later..

Can someone translate the marketing carp please?

Oh, I see - a pair of trainers for brand victims for £125! Reduced price gets a bit nearer to what they're really worth.

Don't agree at all with the ugly part, but thats subjective. As for re-selling, this will very probably be worth a decent amount, the longer you can keep them before selling the better.

You won't get them cheaper than this, ever. They will only go up in price once stock gets low/gone.

I got some Adidas Superstar 2's for £20 a couple months ago.

From the FAQ's

ARE THESE SIZES UK OR US?

UK. We're UK-based after all, but you can see a conversion chart here.

They have been around for years and 100% trustworthy, they are firstly a Trainer forum and community for collectors and enthusiasts. Also they are one of Adidas design partners whenever they have a limited range/release CT often get to do one of the designs. If you're into your trainers, its one of the best forums to get registered on. But be prepared to start spending big bucks on all the limited and rare stuff:thumbsup:
