4.0 out of 5 starsGreat shoes.... but can a middle-aged man wear them in 2016?
September 6, 2016
I loved these shoes when I had them as a teenager in the 1970s. Fast forward.... I bought a pair of these in 2010. I loved wearing them again! Retro! Modern! Then they wore out I bought another pair in 2015. I loved wearing them again.... again! Then my son pointed out that Superstars are very popular with teenage girls. To rub it in, he sent my lots of pictures of girls at his high school wearing them.
Just received mine about an hour ago. They look good, like good fakes. I own a few pair of Adidas and these don't look the same quality. You can see the glue seeping from the seams. On top of that, they feel horrible. Extremely narrow, and I'm a slim guy I don't have very wide feet. Will be returning promptly. I don't recommend purchasing from this seller unfortunately.
Markedly more narrow than similar pairs Ive bought in the past. I compared the sole to a pair it is replacing and the sole is more narrow. Probably just another manufacturer cutting corners by using less material to sell an inferior product . If you have wide feet Id pass these up .
No way these are real. THEY ARE FAKE!. They look good out of the box but the second you put them on you know they are fake because they do not feel right. The fit is horrible and the padding is extremely thin. I bought these in the winter thinking I would wear them in the summer. After about a month they literally fell apart. The padding is so thin that if you step on a small pebble you can actually feel it through the shoe. I knew the price was just too good to be true. The material is so thin that on a really hot day, you can actually feel the heat from the blacktop or concrete you are walking on. As a Prime member, I am so disappointed in Amazon. They let these shoddy merchants hawk their fake wears on their site. Disgusted!
The Adidas Original Men's Superstar shoe is a wonderful classic shoe. This is a shoe that I have bought many times over. Simply because I love the shoe! It's comfortable. It fits well and feels great. I primarily bought this shoe for myself. However, my husband who has Multiple Sclerosis loves to wear this shoe. He suffers from "Leg Drop" and needs a quality shoe that also provides traction and looks great all at the same time. This shoe is it! It does everything he needs in a shoe!
You can find similar models in outlet stores, however, finding this specific shoe can be difficult. The gold trim on the Adidas Original Superstar really does make you feel like a superstar! I am constantly getting compliments. 5/5!
