2015 will see the iconic adidas Superstar enjoy its 45th anniversary, and to celebrate the occasion, adidas Originals has partnered with Ateliers Heschung. The family run factory manufactured shoes for adidas France in the 1970s, and the facility has been tapped to create a "Made in France" Consortium edition of the venerable silhouette. Using traditional handcrafted techniques, the shoe's premium leather upper is stitched to the signature rubber toe cap and tooling. The old-school motif continues through the black leather three-stripes and unbranded heel tab, while the crisp white upper is complemented by a subtle vintage ivory tone throughout the shell-toe, outsole and soft leather lining. A "Made in France" logo on the tongue completes the look. Retailing for $220, the adidas Consortium Superstar "Made in France" launches December 12th at No.42 Paris, No.74 Berlin and select Consortium retailers worldwide.
