Original Story (06/25/21): In early 2020, adidas welcomed Kerwin Frost to the Three Stripes family. Shortly after, the Harlem-born creative participated in the adidas Originals “Change Is A Team Sport” campaign for the Superstar’s 50th anniversary. We also saw adidas act as a sponsor for Kerwin’s charity telethon later in the year. However, we have yet to see an actual release from this partnership. That’s about to change, as the first Kerwin Frost x adidas shoe has been unveiled.
The eclectic personality takes on the Superstar for his first adidas collab. Dubbed the “Superstuffed,” the classic model has been puffed up with fat tongues, extra padding around the ankle, and an overall beefier profile inspired by clown shoes and mascot shoes. The “Superstuffed” Superstar appears in the Superstar’s classic white colorway, donning black stripes and heel panels as well as gold foil branding on the tongue, insoles, and side panels.
The Kerwin Frost x adidas Superstar “Superstuffed” is expected to release sometime later this year via adidas.com and select retailers. Check out official images of the shoe below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates on this upcoming drop.
