Dookie ropes, sleve-rolled blazers, leg warmers and shoulder pads are the kinds of fashion cues more commonly seen in costume or ironic form these days than during their mid-’80s heyday, and that just goes to show how perfect of a design the adidas Originals Superstar ’80s really was/is.  Now a quarter-century after its debut, the Superstar shelltoes get a special nod from The Brand with the Three Stripes, this new release commemorating the pioneering rap group who broke ground both musically and in collaborative marketing.  The Run-D.M.C Superstars are set to release this Friday, which means that shortly after Darryl McDaniels arrives at Dr. Jays Harlem, it’ll be 11:11 on 11/11/11.  DMC will then follow that appearance with another stop at the adidas Originals flagship at 5pm; will you be on hand for one or both of these photo ops?
