Every piece of the Prada Superstar is made in Italy by Prada. Full-grain leather is used for the upper, which also features adidas Originals’ faithful rubber shell toe. Rounded out by a herringbone-pattern rubber cupsole, triple-stripe branding and a Trefoil logo-print on the heel, alongside the Prada logotype.
The release also includes the Prada bowling bag for adidas, executed in calf leather with a sports nylon strap. The body of the bag boasts the twinned logos of Prada and adidas Originals.
Both products are offered in pared-back “Optic” white with black detailing. Availability is limited to 700 pieces, and both the Superstar and bowling bag are numbered with a unique serial.

The adidas Superstar first launched in 1969 as an on-court basketball shoe, and was championed by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but later became a cultural icon thanks to RUN DMC and the seminal track “My Adidas.” 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic sneakers. Throughout its 50-year history, the Superstar has been previously manufactured in France and Germany, and re-interpreted by musicians, fashion designers, and retailers.
