This Kasina x adidas Originals Superstar 80s collaboration should remind you of the one and only adidas Yeezy Boost 350. The say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, if that’s the case, the Boost 350 has a full-on blush right now.
adidas links up with Korean sneaker store Kasina to create a unique looking pair of Superstar 80s. Opting to take the minimal route, the Superstar comes dressed in a smooth tonal suede construction that takes care of the majority of the upper. Black suede makes for nice contrast as it can be found on the heel, tongue and the medial side panels. Speaking of the side panels, don’t they look exactly like the side panels used on the Boost 350? Red accents placed throughout give the shoe some nice pop. Giving it even more of a Boost 350 feel is the tonal branding placed on the medial side panels. If you’re diggin’ the look, you’ll be able to get your hands on a pair beginning August 20th.
It’s not something I would wear. I don’t even like the Boost 350 to begin with. It’s definitely an easy pass on my end, I’d rather get a original looking pair of Superstars.
