The adidas Superstar has kept a relatively low profile following an important 50th anniversary last year, but Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver, Henry Ruggs III, has recently outfitted the classic sneaker in an eye-catching “Bold Blue” colorway.

Ostensibly inspired by the impending colder weather, the latest take on the adidas Originals staple delivers a fleece-lined proposition. Leather and suede across the upper indulge in a “do-it-yourself” style given its unrefined edges, contrasting stitching and layering. The 22-year-old athlete’s initials are stamped onto the lateral profile in “Gold Metallic” styling, while “Something Great” phrasing appears on the heel. Underfoot, adidas‘ iconic shoe opts for an off-white sole unit that allows for the components up top to revel in the spotlight.

Enjoy official images of the “shell-toe” here below, and find pairs available at adidas.com on September 22nd.
