Yes, I do admit it that Adidas Superstar shoes was by far the best footwear that anybody could wear in the gym, not to mention everywhere else. It has always been touted as the perfect shoe with all-round benefits and most importantly, stylish as hell! Let us summarize all the good things that the customers had benefitted from the Adidas Superstar shoes.
Why were the shoes so popular?
As this article does not dwell in what is good about the shoes we shall not elaborate but still quickly have a glimpse because it is important in order to emphasize our point. The Adidas Superstar shoes had a moderately flat sole accompanied with a little heel incline which made it very useable for walking especially in the rain. The shoes were massively durable and yet had an understated classy look and appeal. The best thing about them was that by and far they were the best pair of shoes that a bodybuilder could wear at the gym. And the fact that it was affordable and reasonable to the pockets made it all the more fun.
Then what the hell is wrong?
Well, nothing actually was wrong with buying a pair of Adidas Superstar shoes online until the sports brand decided to make a few changes in it, which turned out to be worse for wear. The latest edition of the shoes has a lot of aspects that has not been preferable to the loyal admirers of this product. Let us have a look at them.
The horrible logo
I know this is more of a personal aspect but come on! The classic white on black and the cool Gold on white logos were just the best. The new design flaunts a Glossy black logo printed on the tongue of the shoe. While one may argue that the new black one added a bit of a “gansta” feeling to the pair, the classic white ones just made them standout a little more. They kept the same Gold tongue design in the women’s version of the Adidas superstar shoes then why deprive the men?
The new size, the updated one
The concept of updating has been taken a bit too farther by Adidas in their new Superstar version. Trying to one-up every aspect about the shoes they have even updated their sizing. The new number 12 is actually the old number 11. Try wearing the old edition of the shoe and ask for a pair of the same size. You are bound to find it much smaller. Now try the next size and voila! They are the perfect fit. Now it is obvious that your feet couldn’t have grown while you were changing shoes at the store. Or can they?
New design of the toe cap
The old one seemed to a bit wider than the new one. Also felt that the little marks of hash were not textured perfectly. There seems to be a change in the toe cap designing and it is certainly not for the better.
Tongue holder unchanged but laces become thinner
Not that we don’t like thicker laces. We actually do and also think that thin chunky laces are just not trendy enough. But if you widen your lace then you must also widen the small holder at the center of the tongue.
