If so far it has seemed like just another suggestion from sneakers that are being hyped for whatever reason, then it’s time to learn the history of these iconic shoes. And that’s really interesting with the superstars! We’ll also give you tips on how to wear the iconic superstars in the new season!
Promising beginnings of the legend
It all began in Germany in 1924, because it was there that two brothers – Rudolf and Adolf Dassler – decided to found a company that was to deal with the production of sports shoes, the Dassler brothers OHG. The first shoe designs were created in the laundry of the mother of the Dassler brothers and were made from rubber seals from fuel tanks and from linen fabric from military tents. Despite the lack of sufficiently good conditions, the siblings always strived for success. After not even four years of founding the company, the Dassler brothers were already providing professional athletes who were taking part in the Olympic Games with the necessary sports equipment. Fortunately, the brand’s good name was not lacking in success – the American runner Jessie Owens became a four-time gold medal winner in the shoes of the Dassler brothers OHG.
But all good things come to an end … After the Second World War, the Dassler brothers decided to split up and each of them opened their own company – Adolf started working under the adidas logo, while Rudolf became the owner of the Puma brand.
How long has adidas Superstar been around??
Of the iconic adidas superstar First released in 1969, it immediately captured the hearts of most professional basketball players. Every NBA or NCAA player had at least a pair of Superstars in their closet, and the interest in this model was so great at the time that it was almost a miracle to get it without vitamin B. Not only did they stand out from the competition because of their interesting design, but also because of their unique quality and durability.
And since we’re already talking about their looks, it is worthwhile to dwell on this topic for a moment, because the superstars have revolutionized the way in which correct basketball shoes should look. Of course, you have to admit at this point that they are undoubtedly also unusual because on the one hand they are low cut and on the other hand they have characteristic reinforcements on the toes in the form of a rubber cover (the so-called “shell toe”).
