The adidas Superstar Is Back At 80s CC In Track Top & Windbreaker Styles
The classic adidas Superstar Track Top is back in OG form with subtle updates as well as a new windbreaker format.
Adopting the same name as the iconic basketball trainer before it, the adidas Superstar Track Top comes from a world of 3 stripes nostalgia. If adidas are known for anything its trainers and most certainly tracksuits, both just as significant as the other to the German sportswear label’s back catalogue. Originally released in 1979, the Superstar Track Top was designed for the courts but soon became a key 3 stripes sportswear style forging a close connection to music and subcultures. With a name like ‘Superstar’ it was never really going to disappoint, with the track top now among some of the finest sportswear ever released from the 3 stripes label. Whilst the Beckenbauer had a football legend behind it, the Superstar gained a wealth of 3 stripes nostalgia throughout the 80s and 90s, from hip hop to Brit Pop, including the likes of Run DMC and the Gallagher brothers.

The iconic 3 stripes Track Top is back at 80s Casual Classics with some subtle updates. White piping has been added to the chest area running alongside the signature white 3 stripes on the arms. The iconic trefoil branding of the Originals line still remains embroidered to the chest with the original basketball inspired collar and ribbed cuffs. The Superstar looks great whether it be with a pair of shorts on holiday, a pair of jeans or a full tracksuit combo for the complete 80s sportswear look.

A great lightweight jacket for the upcoming festival season and an updated classic adi’ piece to add to your wardrobe.
