ADIDAS ARCHIVE: BASKETBALL SHOES
In 1969, as professional basketball was reaching new heights of popularity in the United States, adidas debuted its iconic Superstar and revolutionized in-game footwear. The shoe featured the first genuine leather upper and a herringbone outsole for enhanced traction on the court, making it popular with players across the league. Since then, adidas has continued to debut innovative tech designed for bucket-making and defender shaking, along with eye-catching silhouettes and colorways that helps athletes stand out in the arena and on the blacktop.
