I used to save up all summer working a paper route for a pair of Superstars to wear in the new school year. Skip almost 40 years later and I've got easily 10 pairs in rotation(I have a lot more boxed up!). Adidas has perfected this shoe - back in the day the leather upper was matched to a more yellow rubber outsole but today it is a very crisp and clean bright white. As for the shoe--it starts off comfortable and becomes more so over time. It is a very durable shoe and can put up with a lot of harsh wear. I tend to rotate my shoes daily as to keep the interior in top shape. I buy when I see an original or interesting strip color as these rarely wear out. I can't recommend highly enough.
These shoes are very comfortable. I have a pair of the all black superstars that i wear for work and i love them so much i just had to have something with a little more color for everyday use. I got these in record time which was a happy surprise but i noticed that they were quite a bit smaller than my other pair though they were the 'same' size. The only difference between them was that my all blacks were made in Vietnam and my new pair were made in India. It's good that i have small feet and I like roomy shoes because they do fit quite well, it was just a little strange. Overall still very happy with my shoes and their quality.
As others have mentioned the sizing can vary depending on the country of manufacture. I had tried on some size 7s locally, that were made in Indonesia, but they were too narrow & no half sizes were available & they did not have the black ones I wanted. So I ordered 2 pairs 7 & 7.5 & good job I did. Both pairs were made in India & the 7s come up slightly larger so fit. The upside of ordering 2 pairs is you cross the £100 threshold for free shipping & it is then also free to return the unwanted pair. The return went perfectly & I have had the email saying Adidas has processed my refund. Excellent service fully recommended.
Ok, I LOVE these!! I'm a girl and I got these shoes just before starting highschool, which, was a decade (10 years!) ago and I still wear them nearly daily!! They are a bit dirtier and the backs have wore out a bit, but, they still are in great shape and my go-to tennis shoe!! I recently decided I needed to maybe look for a new pair and I was happy to see these are still being made. I haven't ordered yet, but hoping soon to get a new pair, just had to share my story with anyone who is thinking of these. I will never in my life have a pair of shoes last as long as these one have, and, again, I'm still wearing them as daily shoes 10 years after purchase! Amazing!! :D (And, I still remember the sales guys telling me, a girl about 13 or so that they were men's shoes and none would fit me, but, I insisted, I fell in love with the color/design, got a pair size 6 and it was a great fit!)
It's only taken me about 20 years to get a pair of originals in my size (14uk). But I worn them out with pride this weekend!!! Now please Adidas make them in somemore styles and colours PLEASE!!! Great trainers and look so cool, I'll being buying somemore.
I have large feet and so typically find limited selection. I have found that Adidas shoes fit me well, their construction in the way they form their shoes fits my feet well. Also I've found that their size 15 fits me well, from one year to the next and one Adidas model to the next. So I trusted ordering on-line, and was not disappointed. The shoes fit well so I did not have to send them back, and this saved a trip to a retail outlet store. The shoes are attractive - I wear them to work. Very good on-line experience, good shoes. Thanks.
I'm don't have any shoe fetishes but i can assert these are by far some of the best pairs of shoes i have bought in a long time. they fit great once you break them in in about 2 days depends how much you walk but they are great shoes. i gave them a shine with some foam for car tires for the rubber tip, some leather cleaner for the leather parts of the shoes and put the laces in the washer machine for a shoe good as new. Great shoe in style and comfort
Aight, real talk first time i've ever worn these shoes was when I was about 11 me and my brother were dirt poor and went looking through trash can after trash can in rich neighborhoods looking for clothes, food and what not. As some people say "another man trash is another man's treasure" and then I stumble across these pretty much new shoes, and I was like wow... blown away.. better than wearing 2 different worn out tennis shoes. Good memories, and reminiscing. =) Looks very great i'll tell you that. ya heard
I've owned a paid of these shoes since they came out 30 years ago. Still great. Pure Classics,
I have always loved the old-school Adidas shelltoes, known as Superstar. They got re-released (2.0), slightly different but equally as comfortable and rugged as I remember. The small differences are a different insole than I remember, slightly higher arch, but still comfy. I like the leather black with white stripes and the old ones had the stripes as the only thing white, but the 2.0's have a white upper heel. Not a biggie, but I likes it black with the Adidas logo in white. All in all, very pleased with my purchase, same price as anywhere and fast shipping made it good for me. I hate having to got to the malls and try to find the right shoes when I know the ones I want.
I bought the superstars in black about two months ago and i remember reading all the reviews! I honestly love these shoes so so sooo much, they are my favourites :) The shoes are really comfortable and I have no problems with them. When I first started wearing them, I got so many compliments too !! ^^ A slight issue however which some people may face is the sizing. Because these are in mens sizes, I had to measure my foot's length and contact the Adidas support team for reinsurance of the size. I am a size 8 in womens so I got a size 7 in mens. However, the shoes are slightly loose by maybe half a size or so but with socks, and tying the laces I guess I kinda 'grew' into them. Just something to think about when buying these :) But overall, AMAZING shoes and if you're having trouble choosing the colour like I did, search up on google images pics of people wearing superstars and see which colour you like the best! (I couldn't choose between the black and the white w/ black)
I love these shoes. This is my second pair. My son 'took' my first pair because he said they were 'fresh'. I take it that is good.
Over 10 years ago I bought the same sneakers, but I don't remember them being so uncomfortable. I have a size 11.5-12 EE foot. I'm also flatfooted so it's hard to find comfy sneakers. So since I had them before I figured I'd buy them again to go with my new adidas hoody. I tried everything to make them work, but they are not made for people with sasquach feet. I don't recomend them if you have wide, flat feet. Otrherwise, They are a well built pair of sneakers. Also wanted to add that most adidas that I've tried on have the same issue with prominant arch support. Also they run small so if your normally a men's size 9, I would try a 10.
These are the best casual shoes ever. Period. I believe old school shell toes literally beat out Air Force Ones and any other type of New School casual shoe. Adidas All Day Everyday.
Classic product from a classic site. Thanks Adidas. I will be back to purchase more......
