adidas Superstar “Starting Five” Samples Elements from Five Classic Hoops Shoes
Just yesterday we previewed a handful of Superstar/adidas Hoops classics crossovers in celebration of the former’s 50th anniversary year — and now it appears that the “Verses Pack” will include a “Starting Five” mashup which included elements of five of the finest Three Stripe Baseltball shoes in history. Obviously, the Stan SMith/Pro Moidel is the undefeated champ when it comes to the brand’s hardwood heroes, but not far behind it is the Forum, Americana, Streetball 2, Top Ten and Rivalry — all of which feature here on this Top Five-styled release.
Aspects of the Forum appear on the liners, lateral Trefoil logo, and heel clip-inspired paintwork, while the Americana only graces the profile Three Stripe overlays. The Rivalry hijacks the trimming on those, and also appears on the heel overlays and midsole paintwork, while the iconic Top Ten’s padded collar can be seen around the ankle. Capping off the design is a Streetball 2-inspired forefoot decal.
A Stateside release for the pair is yet to be announced, but with pairs already available in the UK, you can expect pairs to hit our shores shortly. Until then, take a peep at the official image set below, and make sure that you’re following HOUSE OF HEAT on Twitter for further updates on this and the pack’s future release.
