The adidas Superstar has been one of the Three Stripes’ best-sellers since it hit shelves in 1969. The summer of love was also the summer of the Superstar, and we’re all still in love with it.
The silhouette has remained highly relevant throughout its life. Whether it’s being adopted and popularized by subcultures like B-Boyism or having new life breathed into it by collaborators like Human Made, Jonah Hill, or Blondey.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite adidas Superstar sneakers of the recent season. Ranging from collaborations from the likes of André Saraiva through to new-age colorways that nod to the silhouette’s long history, there’s an adidas Superstar for everyone.

Team Dark Green
One of our favorite new colorways of the classic Superstar is this simple, block-colored Team Dark Green iteration. The classic green looks perfect against the Cream White trims.
Artist André Saraiva’s distinctive characters are no strangers to classic adidas silhouettes. The partnership between the artist and adidas is ongoing with a pared-back Superstar detailed with an embossed signature to the heel.
Clean Cloud White forms the blank canvas for this pair of adidas Superstar Sneakers. Standing in contrast to the white backdrop is a textured indigo hue to the Stripe logo and heel tab.
In the same style as our first selection, this retro-tinged version looks to a two-tone finish with Shadow Navy against white.
Cloud White / Core Black
We couldn’t do a Superstar roundup without the OG included. This shoe carries with it more history than most other current trainers combined. It’s a groundbreaking design that continues to be wildly popular; they don’t make them like this anymore.
We’re always in favor of neutral sneakers. With a majority beige upper, this quiet version of the Superstar becomes even more versatile than it usually is.
Who needs color? This Triple White finish is yet more evidence that classic designs often look best when the focus is placed solely on the silhouette.
Chalk White / Crew Navy
Few colors work together better than off-white and indigo. It’s an age-old truism, but you can see why.
One of adidas’ most recognizable signatures is this color palette. Collegiate Green against Cloud White is one of those nominations which never gets old. Dressing the equally timeless adidas Superstar, it’s a lesson in style over fashion.
As we move into fall and winter, it’s worth thinking about bringing some darker shoes into your rotation. The Core Black base of this Superstar makes it a fuss-free selection for the upcoming seasons.
