Yes, you did read that right. You can now get an Adidas Originals Superstar Lego set, sold in an Adidas shoe box.
I know, it’s a mad idea. But if you are a big fan or a collector of Adidas, you will want this one. I suspect this will be a future rarity.
You might know that Lego has an Adidas Collection available right now (or vice versa), which is a mix of clothing and footwear inspired by the iconic brick. If you want to check it out, you can see it here and also at the Adidas site if you want the adult designs too.
But the set you see here is a one-off. This is a 731-piece set of an iconic Adidas shoe. One that has been in the range since 1969 and designed as a basketball shoe back in the day. But famous rubber ‘shell toe’ has crossed over into popular culture, most notably when rap legends Run DMC sported them in the 1980s (and beyond). In fact, you can get a pair of the Adidas x Run DMC Superstars in the End Sale right now.
There are so many other variations of the design available right now, all of which you can see at Adidas, including a few others in the sale if you fancy a bargain. Check them out if you want to treat your feet. Or check out this Lego set.
I mean, it has everything. And I mean everything, From the shell toe to the labelling inside and the Adidas branding to the heel and tongue. There’s even the gold Superstar branding to the side as well. Oh yes, real laces to finish it off too and your own Adidas Lego box.
Once you have finished making the shoe (which I suspect is a long job and down as an adults-only task too) you can set it on its own stand featuring key facts about it. This will look great as a piece of design in your home. Want a pair? Buy two sets. There’s a good chance they’ll be worth a few quid in future, so likely a shrewd investment.
Yes, I do love it and I hope one day they’ll think of expanding to other styles too. But there’s no word of that just now. So enjoy this one and if you want a set in your life, £79.99 is the price.
