Take away the hype, the fancy box and all the accessories and what you’re left with isn't a terribly exciting shoe if we’re completely honest. Of course they were a bit special due to the super-limited release and the unique approach to the materials and construction. But adidas kinda lessened the exclusivity of the leather shell and midsole build by releasing the Lux range, which barring the leather outsole, looks like the pretty much the exact same shoe in my opinion. They should’ve kept that style exclusively for the Top Secrets if they really wanted them to appear superior to all other Supes.

That and the fact that they can’t realistically be worn outside of a ballroom somewhat lessens their appeal for me. I’m not the kind of person who enjoys paying crazy sums of money to have boxes and boxes of pristine, unworn Supes sat in a room collecting dust. At some point as an old man I want to look over my Supes and I really want all of them to be worn out, torn up, creased to fuck and covered in god knows what. I want them to prompt memories and bring a smile to my face as I recall the adventures and escapades I got up to whilst wearing them: The dancefloor battles, the running from cops with spray paint falling out my bag and sloppily laced shelltoes flopping off my feet. Driving halfway across Europe in a brukdown £50 car on some mad roadtrip to find some fabled barn full of old adidas shoes. I couldn’t do any of those things in Top Secrets and creating those kind of memories will always mean much more to me than seeking internet props merely for possessing one particular pair of shoes.

Supe like Wanton, Buju like Banton
