The Adidas Superstar is arguably the greatest basketball sneaker of all time. If you put it up against the Jordan 1, Air Force 1, Adidas Pro Model, Forum and the Puma Clyde, it holds its own against all of them in my humble opinion.

Its been over-saturated, its been underrated and its still a shoe that turns heads and has clout. With the classic Shelltoe turning 45 next year, the “Made in France” takes it all the way back to its original place of production. This rendition of the Shelltoe is a handcrafted ┬átake on the white and black colorway, topped off with a “Made in France” stamp on the tongue.

As an Adidas aficionado who loves the three stripes and knows the chances of ever getting an original pair are next to none, this is the perfect chance at getting as close to an original pair as possible. The shoe sits at a hefty price tag of $220. Despite the steep price tag, the “Made In France” literally takes cues from the original design and material. Be prepared for these (and your wallet) to drop on next Friday, December 12.
