Editor’s Notes: The new atmos x adidas Superstar boldly uses denim on the upper of the classic sneaker. Light and dark blue-colored denim comes together on the pair, which welcomes exposed bronze stitching as a complementary design detail. On the heel you will find a special adidas carabiner that completes the look of the jeans-inspired makeup. The more you wear the collaborative Superstar, the more the texture of the denim will change, leaving you with a truly unique pair of sneakers.
