The Superstar was introduced in 1969 as the first low-top basketball shoe to feature an all-leather upper and the now famous rubber shell toe. Also known as shell toes, they were first made popular by hip-hop legends Run-DMC and have been a constant hit ever since. Adidas Superstars were the first low tops with an all-leather upper. Equally popular, are the classic Adidas Stan Smiths.The Shelltoes and Stan Smiths are the most customized of the Adidas family.
