LEGO Creates an Adidas Sneaker

A LEGO and Adidas collaboration has produced an Adidas Superstar LEGO Brick Set.

"As shoes represent very organic objects, made from flexible material that also look different on every person, it was a fun challenge to translate this into the LEGO System in Play, which by nature is square and blocky", said LEGO senior designer Florian Müller. 

The said construction is made entirely out of toy bricks. Of course, it is not meant to be worn – but it features all of the “shell-toe’s” signature details. 

For starters, the set takes on the sneaker’s original “Cloud White/Core Black” colorway. Shimmering “Metallic Gold” branding on the lateral profile and tongue further nod to the model’s retail version. The iconic toe-cap is recreated, but not out of durable rubber. Laces, however, are transplanted from the made-to-wear shoe, delivering yet another touch of accuracy to the special edition release.

It comes with a display stand and plaque, collectible shoe box and 17 additional LEGO elements to create a one-of-a-kind model. The LEGO Adidas Originals Superstar Shoe is the size of an actual US 7.5 shoe and will sell for $90. 

It will be available via on July 1st.
