Men’s Shoes sneakers adidas Originals Ultrastar 80S BB0171

PRODUCER: adidas Originals
MODEL: Ultrastar 80S
 In 1987, several years after the huge success of the adidas Superstar, the world was shown another member of the family characterized by a rubber nose – so called Shell Toe. adidas Ultrastar shoes, because that was the name given, were put into market in the framework of the still ongoing collaboration of the brand with legendary group RUN DMC. For the record – it is they who, through “My adidas” hit, eleviated Superstar to heights of popularity! adidas Originals Ultrastar sneakers are strikingly similar to their older brother, but good eye will quickly spot small details that make them a completely separate project. The very silhouette was actually borrowed from the adidas Superstar, but here we have such details as: thickly padded tongue, which allows wearing shoes without laces, giant logo – Trefoil on the heel, or a characteristic “notch” in the system of lacing, which strongly differentiate Superstar and Ultrastar models. Men’s shoes adidas Originals Ultrastar 80s have an upper made entirely of natural leather. Decorative elements are the side straps and counter, which were given the texture of snake skin. On the heel there is traditionally a big brand logo, and between the stripes there are perforations responsible for proper air circulation inside the shoe. Inside there’s a textile lining and a counter lined with synthetic leather. The whole is based on a fully rubber adhesive sole, which is somewhat “aged” to get the vintage effect.
