- MODEL: ADIDAS SUPERSTAR VULC

The adidas Heartfelt is the result of a monolithic collaboration between adidas, now-legendary skateboarder, Mark Gonzales and Canadian artist, Andrew Pommier. This joint effort on a vulc sole Superstar. Pommier has teamed up with adidas for numerous other projects, including a mid-top Superstar and a slip-on shoe. The artwork consists of a stabbed ghost, a cell phone, broken hearts, bottles, a house, and an adidas Originals notebook to include a few of the sketches.
Featuring heavy black lines with prominent orange accents, the shoe is offset by the cool bone color which covers the majority of it. Bone is sleek and inoffensive, yet neutral enough to be matched with brighter colours without letting them take over.
A contemporary re-work of one of adidas’ most successful shoes, the Heartfelt combines functionality and form to create a great shoe. Plus, the rubber toe-shell means no creases, a certain deal-breaker for many sneaker addicts. The shoe comes with a pair of matching black laces.
