LEGO and adidas Originals have partnered again in a partnership that focuses on the superstar kicks. The classic silhouette comes in both a sneaker form and a brick model set.
The real shoe has a simple black and white design with LEGO’s signature blocks that add contrasting textures. The three stripes, shell toe and heel tab come in brick shape, while the rest of the upper material is made of white leather.
The collector’s model Superstar 10282 presents the silhouette in rectangular blocks and offers all iconic details such as the shell cap, the trefoil Branding, three stripes on the sides and more. The set includes 17 additional LEGO pieces that you can use to build either the left or right shoe, as well as laces and a shoebox.
“As a child in the 80s and raised in the 90s, the superstar sneaker with its rich street art culture was such a cult object, and that’s when I got my first pair,” says LEGO senior designer Florian Müller in a press release. “I was really excited to be working on this model. Since shoes are very organic objects made of flexible material and look different in every person, it was a fun challenge to translate this into the LEGO system in Play, which is naturally square and blocky. ”
Take a closer look above. The Superstar LEGO Sneaker is available in adult and junior sizes and will be released online on July 1st. The 10282 model will be available in LEGO stores that same day.
