atmos and Adidas Superstar 80s Gold Metallic Best Price team up once again to bring us a new rendition of the ongoing G-SNK project atop the venerable adidas Superstar 80s. We’ve seen the combination a number of times before, as atmos hits the upper of the famed three stripes lifestyle silhouette with a faux-snakeskin textile while giving the added benefit of the futuristic glow in the dark aesthetic, thus the abbreviated name standing for “Glow Snake”.
While the 2014 FIFA World Cup is in the rearview, adidas doesn’t seem to be quite done issuing lifestyle shoes tied up in their on-pitch offerings. Case in point is this scaly version of the Adidas Superstar 80s Chalk White UK Clearance, which carries a “Predator” nickname in reference to the boot line of the same name. So far we’ve only spotted them at the adidas UK store, but here’s to hoping that they’ll show up elsewhere.
Kanye West, Pharrell, Raf Simons, Nigo, Jeremy Scott, and others are all doing their best to reinvent the adidas catalog at the moment through their collaborations. But that doesn’t mean that the brand has turned their back on the most beloved of their past silhouettes. Case in point is this Adidas Superstar 80s Core Black Cheapest that’s on display here in a straight white/black palette with a little bit of gold for the tongue.
The Adidas Superstar 80s Oddity MgsOGr Discount is a sneaker that’s been a little slow on the special editions lately. Sure there was that atmos “Glow Snake” version, but that’s a route we’ve seen them take a couple of times before so it wasn’t exactly a mind blower when it showed up. What might blow your mind though is this version of the shoe, known as the adidas Originals Superstar 80s Cage, that encases the sneakers in some extra support struts on the side panels.
This new collab from atmos and Adidas Superstar 80s Lowest Price is one of those glow in the dark sneakers that looks way different in the night than it does in the day. In regular lightning you can just barely make out the snake textures, but when the sun falls you’ll find a detailed reptilian pattern that’s highlighted by the luminescent treatment. This isn’t the first time these two entities have been down this path either, just last year we were treated to another incarnation of the adidas “Glow Snake” theme.
