Reminiscing the first pair of classics that he ever owned, Ranveer Singh shares his obsession over the sneakers during his university years in the United States. “I walked to a store and among all the shoes, my eyes fell on this one white beauty with the trefoil that stood out from the rest; it was the Superstar! Then on started my romance with adidas Originals. Though adidas leather kicks are meant to be worn out, I still remember the amount of care I used to take of my Superstar and spend hours cleaning it up. Flaunting the sparkling white kicks in front of my friends and peers, and envy in their eyes was just priceless.”
Speaking about the new collection, Ranveer added, “Always been a fan of these timeless sneakers all my life, and with the launch of the Supercourt, I get to further extend my classics collection. I can’t wait to make a statement in these new icons!”
Rooted in deep cultural crossover moments, the iconic white leather sneaker is best represented by creative and progressive voices across various fields. A testament to the brand’s 50 years of expertise in making classic white leather sneakers, the ‘Home Of Classics’ celebrates the iconic white sneaker - a style statement that has revolutionized the trend in years of fashion history.
