atmos x adidas Superstar 80s G-SNK IV

  • DESIGNED BY: atmos
  • MADE ON: --/11
  • ART.NO: V21864

Tokyo’s well-known sneaker store atmos has once again collaborated with adidas Originals on a release for Fall 2011. By now both companies have a reputation for glow-in-the-dark snakeskin and this will be the fourth in a series of Superstar 80s, aptly nicknamed “G-SNK IV” (meaning glow-in-the-dark snakeskin number four).

This time they’ve released the most simple, classic colorway made of an all-white, snakeskin upper with black stripes and heel patch. Of course, the main feature is the glow-in-the-dark snakeskin, shining a bright green when worn in low-light settings. The kicks are made complete with an off-white vintage style outsole and the infamous Superstar 80s shelltoe, and are packaged with both white and black laces.

The Superstar 80s G-SNK IV was a Tokyo-only exclusive and available from atmos online for those who did not live within Japan. However the shoe was sold out quickly just as the previous four versions were, and it’s destined to be found for high prices on eBay and other online auctions and collector forums.
