We all know how crazy the last collaboration between adidas and Bape went down and it appears they will be linking up again, this time with the help of Neighborhood Apparel on the classic Superstar silhouette. Bape and adidas have collaborated on this model before, but this time it’ll be little different as everybody’s favorite cushioning system, Boost, will be implemented.
Unlike the images of the Stan Smith Boosts where the boost is visible, it appears they will encase the boost within the timeless Superstar rubber midsole. I personally much prefer the look of encased boost over exposed boost on classic silhouettes, it just makes a whole lot more sense.
They also are including some knit on the upper (tongue and heel areas) for additional comfort. Surprisingly, they are incorporating the NMD heel cup and pull tab on this model, which somehow works at least in my opinion.
What are your thoughts on this upcoming collab? I personally think it’s a fresh take on the Superstar, and anything with Boost will have most people’s attention so I definitely see this collab being a successful one.
