Thanks to the post-recession maturation of streetwear and the sneakerhead scene, we’ve seen more formal shoe design cues applied to sneakers than ever before. One such popular element is to add the brogue perforations seen on wingtip shoes to models with a formal lean, a perfect example of which is this new adidas Originals Superstar LTO. The rich brown oiled leather extends to the Superstar’s signature shell toe and gives way to the aforementioned hole-punches between the side panel stripes. Toss in tonal laces, metal eyelets and a white sole and these are quite fetching, and you can fetch a pair from Three Stripes retailers like SNS.
