As preview earlier, adidas Originals partnered with chief buyer and designer, Ronnie Fieg, from retailer David Z, in creating a more streamlined yet stylish look for this holiday season. The result is the Black Tie Project Superstar, a unique design approach where premium pearlized leather, patent leather, and tone-on-tone pinstripes, all applied on the classic form of adidas Originals Superstar. As Mr. Feig stated "The main idea behind the Black Tie was to design a Superstar that looks like a shoe, can be worn with a suit but can still be worn with your everyday fashions. In addition, the traditional rubber toe cap was replaced with, in this case, a embroidered leather, also in black. All finished up with a leather stripe wrapped around the midsole. A "hidden message" on the insole highlights the release date.
Both David Z and adidas Originals will host a family and friends black tie gala this coming Wednesday, November 26th, where visiting gentlemen will all be given a special adidas 3 stripes black necktie for the occasion. Numbered at 400 units, the entire Black Tie Project is scheduled to release on this coming Friday, November 28th, to coincide with Black Friday. Retailers include David Z flagship store, Shoe Gallery in Miami and Major of Washington D.C.
