In honor of its new store in Rio de Janeiro, located in the city's Ipanema neighborhood, adidas Originals has launched a special edition of its iconic Superstar silhouette.  The shoe is the product of a collaboration between the Brazilian 3-Stripe design team, in partnership with a quartet of local creative influencers. The result is a model inspired by the duality of Rio de Janeiro, spanning the beach and the city, the sand and the cobblestones. The predominantly white leather build is finished with a gum rubber sole unit, made with recycled materials. Launching just in time for the Summer Olympics, the kicks are available now exclusively at the adidas Originals Ipanema store.
