      Hip-hop and high fashion

      Hip-hop and high fashion

      While we gave you a first official look back in May, this modernized variation of the iconic Stan Smith adidas superstar shoes is now confirmed to be the Shock Primeknit.

      Essentially colored in its OG theme of footwear white/green, the slip-on high-top model flaunts a sock-like feel that exudes comfortability and a retro vibe that can easily become an instant favorite this summer.

      Adidas adidas superstar 2017 , meanwhile, reached another milestone in 2017. While Nike, which also owns Jordan brand and Converse, dominated the list, Powell pointed out that it was the first time in memory Adidas had two shoes in the top 10—showing its continued strength against long-time market leader Nike.

      Adidas’ retro Superstar adidas superstar womens sneaker couldn’t quite repeat last year’s achievement of coming in at number one—the first time an Adidas shoe had done so in more than a decade—but it was again a strong seller, along with a newer Adidas model, the Tubular Shadow. Overall, the sneakers that Americans bought show the ongoing domination of lifestyle shoes meant for casual wear, at the expense of performance sneakers designed primarily for athletic use.

      That’s just one example of how hip-hop and high fashion have become deeply intertwined since the 1970s. In the 1980s and ’90s, hip-hop stars Run-DMC, LL Cool J, Salt-N-Pepa and others put their personal style on display. And today, no one bats an eye at rap star Kanye West’s much-hyped Yeezy line of apocalyptic-themed apparel and accessories for Adidas or clutches their pearls when rapper ASAP Rocky stars in advertisements for Dior Homme or Calvin Klein.
