So, happenstance that I was thinking about the 35th Supes, back in 2005 and then I did some maths (its not math!) and after a few minuites I worked it all out - THE SUPERSTAR IS FIFTY YEARS OLD.

So i did a google, but they just spy on you nowadays so I did a DuckDuckGo and got the following:

And that's all I found, which is a bit of a shame.  Gone are the days where we had a forum member on the inside working for the Big A. Rolling Eyes

Anyway, time for bed.  If you find any more info, post it here.  Or don't. You can Be like that.  You'll never get into technical college, though.

Hey Everyone:
I'm Laurie and I came across four (4) pair of the Superstar II shoes with the metal eyelets and shoelace metal logo in a storage unit I purchased. 
I can't seem to find any info on line of these particular shoes so I was hoping that the professionals out there can give me some input.
Are they more rare than the shoes without metal eyelets or lace logos?

Hi All.

Worn Superstars constantly for the last 20 years but up until last year only really ever had one pair, which I'd wear until they fell apart, then replace them with another pair.
Being a bit older now and having a bit more disposable cash, I got bit by the collecting bug about a year ago and have now managed to build my collection up to 13 pairs.

Although I like to make things a little more difficult so I have a rule.
Coz I'm tight ar*e, I'll only buy them if I can get them for half or less than the RRP.

Pride myself on paying as little as possible. Cheaper the better.
My last pair I pulled out of clearance in an Adidas Outlet store in Castleford. Box said £29.
When they scanned at the checkout came in a £14.95. 
Brand new Lemon Yellow SS 80S in size 12.5. Perfect.

Another time I managed to negotiate a £40 voucher out of Adidas and grabbed a pair Chinese New Year specials from their online outlet that were going for £44.98 so effectively paid £4.98.

Anyone else a tightwad like me?

As Pink Floyd once asked?

Has anyone seen this before? https://superstar.shoes/en/

The chap - Meyer Frank - seems to be from Germany, don't know if he's a member on here or not.  Doing some clicking it would seem he knows some some members on here, mentions Benji Blunt in his credits.  Nice site as well, guy is obviously a fan.  Shame this place isn't what is was.  I noticed Lurky and Spite, Pure have have their own Instagram thing(alas I am not on that).

Does Benji still do customs?

Anyway flyingcod here just posting, wondering if anyone will get this.  Sad

Hi,

The images attached are the original Superstars I purchased around six months ago. I purchased some others recently and while I was checking they were legit, it became apparent my original, shop bought ones were suspect.

Firstly the PO number on the box doesn't match the number in the shoes. OK so the box could have been swapped. I then noticed the the serial number in each shoe is the same. This points to definite fakes.
Are there any cases of right and left shoes having the same serial number? Could it be a genuine mistake? If they are fake there a bloody good fake. There's nothing different compared to the others.
What do you think?

Came late into Superstar ownership. Born the same year they were released!! Finally bit the bullet and bought a pair six months ago and now own four pairs. I can see how the collecting starts Laughing 

Came across this site whilst looking for details on fakes. I've purchased three pairs online, two from sellers on ebay and one from a sports shop online.

Ironically the first pair I bought from a "reputable" shop are the pair in question. Anyway. I'll post separately on this for your opinions.

Good to be here and the detail I've come across so far is great.

Hi, I purchased an Adidas Lite Racer, B43728, from a shop in Hong Kong, but I can't seem to find any information regarding the model number except in some Chinese websites. Could this be fake? thanks

Hey guys my name is Mike or Otter for short. I'm a glassblower by trade and have work superstars all my life. Literally. I've been looking for some of my favorite ones I had back in 08 or so. The Adicolor BL5 denims that had the interchangeable stripes. Well, I still have them but they're pretty dirty. The denim is work and green from grass. The whites totally washed out. I joined here hoping you guys might have some insight where some new ones might be. I'm an idiot for not keeping care of those rare shoes but I wore then so much. Being 16 didn't help either lol. So hello fellas and don't be too mean!!

Hi,

Looking for some help.

I have a pair of Adidas Superstar 86 060190 UK size 12 that have never been worn. How much are they going for on the resale market?

Not a collector, I was given them as a present when they were released and they’ve never been on my feet.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
