The adidas adiFOM Superstar Debuts January 16

Slip-on foam footwear was arguably the biggest trend in footwear over the past 18 months, with every brand from Jordan to New Balance joining the clog wave. Without a doubt, the most contentious entry into the market was adidas and their adifom Q, a sneaker that Kanye quickly called out for plagiarism in a time shortly before he was outed from the company. The Three Stripes quickly rebutted with some strong evidence of retro inspiration. Like that pair, their newest entry into the segment, the adidas adiFOM Superstar, draws from the brand’s extensive back catalog, this time being less obscure in its inspiration.

Ditching the lacing system and extending the shell toe all the way up to the ankle, the exoskeleton frame of the shoe is — pardon the pun — a shell of it’s inspiring sneaker. Still, the shapeless slipper seems to harness the OG with precision thanks to strategically placed Three Strip and heel paintwork.

A release date for the adidas adiFOM Superstar has been set for January 16th by Euro retailers BSTN, with a Stateside rollout likely to follow shortly thereafter.
