The heel tab looks like on vintages, but to me it looks like an 80s sole, unfortunately. The vintage sole has a different shape in my eyes.

long time no see everyone, been kinda off the supes for a while mainly due to my hobbies requiring different trainers, lol.

anyway, saw these pop up, liked the black ones and it reminded me of you lot, so hope you're all well..

Yes, I like the black ones as well. The design and concept is pretty cool. I'd rock them for sure. Thanks for sharing. Where'd you find those pics? Are they a USA kick as well?

Don't know what you're talking about, Vern.
We were all away at "Superstar Fest 18".
Didn't you get the invite? tongue

All these knitted things leave me cold.
Same as with those tumours.
Adi has saved me a fortune these last few years.
I used to get more pairs a week than I have in total for the last 3 years!

Hello!

I think a major issue of me not purchasing any recent superstars is the poor build quality, it is just gash.  I think Benji has mentioned this in the past when he has taken apart a supe from 10 years ago and a recent one, the build quality is just not there anymore, which is a big shame as I used to look forward to new releases.

Case in point: has anyone saw those Adidas X HENDER efforts?  puke_r They make Jeremy Scott's look a design classic!

If any one is looking to move on their collection of supes and has some in UK 10 that are from 2000 to 2010 I could well be interested.

Yeah, that certainly doesn't help either.
I refuse to wear those fucking RTs or whatever they are.
It's like they're made of tissue paper.
The Mi Adidas site is a joke as well.
The colour choices haven't changed for the best part of 3 years by my reckoning.
I don't know what noike does but I'd put money on them not leaving things to stagnate this long and they quite possibly don't remove options they just add more.
I could be totally wrong and they're in fact worse than Adi's farcical custom site.

Supes just ain't what they used to be, haven't seen a new pair that make me moist in a long time!

Yeah, mi adidas is crap. I was glad when they introduced the 80s model, but like mr. P says they haven't changed the colours for years. And the colours available aren't even good unless you like pastels, silver or gold. Which I don't. 

And the '45th Anniversary' or whatever we should call it was a huge letdown too. Most of the releases ended up on the sales racks, which of course was good from a buyers point of view, but it says a lot about the design too. You sure as hell didn't find any of the 35th consortiums on sale, that's for sure.

Superstars are indeed super...

You've hit the nail on the head there. Numbers didn't help though.
The releases for the 45th were barely limited even compared to the 700 UNDFTD's from 2005.
The Mi-Adidas thing is pissing me off now.
I can't be certain without actually doing some digging but I think it's been nearly 5 years with the same old pastel shit.

I concur. Mi-adidas is garbage. Boring stuff for a quite a while.

Seems someone at Adidas is still watching the forum. Within days of that post, the colours changed.
They flipped back very close to the colours that were available before the pastel shit came in.
Hopefully they'll add some more soon cos the selection is weirdly sparse for some of the materials.
