adidas Consortium reunites with Singapore-based retailer Limited Edt and presents a luxury rendition of the Superstar. The release is a follow up to Limited Edt's stunning pack in 2015 and coincides with the refitting of their Vault store. The new store maintains a hidden special section modeled on a bank vault and references the sublime interiors of gentlemen's clubs decorated in burgundy, gold and mahogany. It stocks exclusive footwear alongside presentations of special editions and the rarest sneakers.
For this release, Limited Edt takes the Superstar silhouette and reworks the model to pay homage to their new Vault store. While its previous collaboration with adidas Consortium was unequivocally bold, this one plays with contrasts. The outside of the upper is the more refined section. In burnished burgundy and with the stripes removed, it looks reminiscent of a dress shoe. As well as arriving in a similar colour to the store’s interior, Limited Edt draws inspiration from smoking jackets and cigar rooms. The grade on the shell toe reimagines the Superstar’s signature detail as though it was part of a leather sofa. The result is a luxurious and understated silhouette.
The medial part of the Limited Edt Superstar is bolder. It shows a detail from the 2015 ZX Flux which was covered with floral, Batik-inspired patterns. The complex dying method is traditionally used in Southeast Asia and in 2017 Limited Edt incorporates this regional element as an embroidery. In greens, red, gold, and blue, it is a rich and eye-catching explosion of colour.
The adidas Consortium x Limited Edt Superstar will drop exclusively in our CPT & JHB on Saturday the 28th of October for the retail price of R2799.00
