This unusual construction first debuted in red earlier this year, showcasing a unique tonal knit upper. However, it seems that the Superstar 80s Primeknit is here to stay as adidas Originals has unveiled a new “Core Black” iteration for it. Returning in a more conservative colorway, the unexpected upper adds sophistication and texture to the sporty classic. To create a seamless effect, the iconic Three Stripes and AQ2881 model code on the tongue are knitted into the material as well. The remodelled sneaker is then completed with a matching heel pull-tab, white shell toe and herringbone-pattern rubber cupsole.
