This July, adidas Originals has worked with Jonah Hill to create a new take on the Superstar. Throughout its existence, the iconic Superstar has been worn by teams and crews who push culture forward. adidas Originals has collaborated with one of culture’s most game-changing and exciting creative forces, Jonah Hill, to present a striking new take on the timeless silhouette.

The Jonah Hill Superstar creates an organic connection to Jonah’s own childhood influences, inspirations, and points of reference. Speaking on the design inspiration Jonah explains the creative process and his personal relationship to the silhouette: “I started thinking back to all the experiences I had growing up while wearing them, and tried to make my fantasy version of what I would have wanted when I first wore them.” Directed by Jonah’s upbringing on the West Coast during the 1990s, the collaborative Superstar sneaker honors the creative’s love for the original silhouette while adding his own unique aesthetics to it. Blending sophisticated lines with a homemade punk aesthetic.

The Superstar is made-up in a core-white full-grain leather upper with an off-white rubber sole. Closer details of the silhouette include an abundance of personal touches, including “JH” and “Superstar” stitching in Jonah’s handwriting, and a lion embroidered on the back of the tongue, which is an ode to one of his tattoos.

The adidas Originals x Jonah Hill Superstar is online now.
