The Superstar Vin has always been a classic silhouette from adidas and the model is frequently featured in collaborations between various boutiques, creative designers, and the infamous three stripes.
A collaborative project known as BBU was formed between Beauty & Youth (by United Arrows), Bedwin & The Heartbreakers, and Undefeated (UNDFTD). This group had collaborated in 2010 on a Stan Smith, and this time their focus would be the well-known Superstar Vin.
The shoe’s main feature is its navy blue canvas upper, uniquely marked by the ventilation holes that lay between the white leather stripes. The heel tab and laces are also white, and the shell toe and out sole are done in the traditional off-white coloring. The footbed is made of cork and bares the BBU project logo above a basket and hoop symbol and the adidas branding.
Packed in a royal blue adidas Originals box, the kicks also come with navy blue lace replacements in two forms: flat and squared. Released on May 1st of 2011, these Superstar Vin’s came in a BBU pack including various clothing and accessories.
