Is adidas Going To Release The adidas Originals Superstar “Metal Toe” Sneaker That Rita Ora Wore Recently?
Over the years, we have seen many, many different versions of the adidas Originals Superstar. The Superstar is one of the most popular adidas sneakers ever, so adidas has released it in all sorts of different colorways and done it up in different silhouettes for people to wear. As a result, there’s not much that would surprise us when it comes to the Superstar sneakers. Because adidas has done so much with it over time, we pretty much assumed that we had seen everything that they have to offer with regards to the Superstar.
However, we apparently haven’t seen it all. Recently, Rita Ora revealed that she has signed an endorsement deal with adidas Originals that will go into effect this year. And while it’s still a little bit unclear what her role will be with the company—we believe she’s going to be designing some sneakers and some clothing, but nothing has been confirmed by adidas yet—she did give us a little taste of what’s to come from her and adidas Originals earlier this week when she posted the photo that you see above on Instagram. It features an adidas Originals Superstar with a metal toe—yes, a metal toe—which is something that we obviously haven’t seen before. And Rita also captioned her photo with “When you ever see a Shell Toe with a Metal TOE? NEVER! But it’s coming.”
With that in mind, it sounds like adidas Originals might actually get around to releasing this Superstar “Metal Toe” sneaker sometime in the near future. If they do, will you be picking up a pair? Or do you think that a “Metal Toe” version of the Superstar is unnecessary? Check out an additional image of the sneaker below, courtesy of Rita Ora, and let us know what you think about it.
