A Classic Reimagined: The adidas Superstar Bounce Primeknit

The adidas Superstar. One of the most classic athletic sneakers ever made. A favorite of multiple generations, cultures, and unique individuals. A shoe that has staying power that other kicks only dream of (do sneakers dream? If so we’d assume it’s about staying power. Or maybe being cleaned. Apologies, we digress). A sneaker that just received a super-ill, futuristic update.

Unlike the also-released Superstar Boost that keeps most of its original shape and detailing, the Superstar Bounce Primeknit offers a sleek, futuristic look made possible by an all-Primeknit upper (except for the classic rubber toe cap of course), and a Bounce midsole for upgraded comfort and support.

A modern take on a classic shoe can be a very hit-or-miss sort of deal. Sometimes a shoe is better when left the way it was originally designed … but sometimes an upgrade modernizes and refreshes it without damaging any of the original charm … and we’d have to say that’s exactly what happened here. These are perfect for the warmer months (a great buy-and-stash pair), and we’ve got a feeling they’d still look pretty dope with some grime on them (word to London) as well.

If you’re a fan of these jawns, you can grab them on the Urban Outfitters website (we’re not sure why they’re available there first, but that’s really neither here nor there). If we see you rocking these this summer … we got you on a dap. You’ll be doing your thing.
