With a name fit for the hip-hop and basketball stars who’ve worn the shoe over the years, the kids’ Superstars are the ultimate icons. These kids’ sneakers keep their true-to-the-original details like a herringbone cupsole, zigzag 3-Stripes edging and signature rubber shell toe while scaling down to junior sizes and beefing up the padding for a more cushioned ride.


The history of kids’ Superstars starts as much on the court as on the streets of New York. First adopted after the 1969 NBA championships, the name Superstar felt fitting, and it stuck. Years later, Superstars found their off-court home in the underground hip-hop scene, winning over rap legends Run D.M.C. and inspiring generations of kids. Today, athletes, artists and everyday stars continue to make the shoe their own.
