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.
Length was ok, but it is really a narrow shoe. Too much hassle to try to return them. It's the hazard of buying online, I reckon. Other than that, these are the shoes of my youth in a nice green color. Really nice shoe. Just watch the sizing.
I bought the shoes as gift for my son and he is very happy with it. The price is quite reasonable as we have searched for awhile and compared extensively with online and brick-and-mortar stores elsewhere.
