Adidas Superstar trainers have long been a firm favourite among the street style set, and it’s really not hard to see why—even if you can’t pinpoint the magic behind them. There’s no one reason this style has stuck around for so long, but it’s got to have something to do with its sheer versatility. It just goes with everything—everything!
Lately, A-listers (think Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Kendall Jenner) have been wearing theirs on repeat despite the many other sneaker options there are to be tempted by, and some of the smartest dressed fashion editors have traded in their sky-high heels in favour of the classics. It’s enough to make us fall in love with our Superstars all over again.
Still, like any wardrobe staple, it can be difficult to think of new ways to wear them. Lucky, then, that Adidas has so kindly released a few new variations of this hero shoe style, should you not yet own a pair. If you fancy a wardrobe refresh for an existing pair, we’ve got some expert styling advice to give yours the attention they so deserve.
Here are five new ways to wear your Adidas Superstar sneakers, old or new, plus three shoppable styles for summer.
