Expanding on the silhouette mash-up experimentation seen on the Superstan, adidas introduces new “Vs.” colorways of the Superstar in a “Starting Five” pack that pays tribute to some old-school adidas basketball silhouettes.

This pack puts the Superstar up against the classic Rivalry, Americana, Forum, Top Ten, and Streetball silhouettes worn by basketball players throughout the 70s and 80s. A “Starting Five” colorway of the Superstar will also be releasing, combining elements of all five aforementioned models in one pair.

Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing wore the Rivalry High when it debuted back in 1986 in orange and blue New York Knicks colors, similar to the color schemes of the two Rivalry vs. Superstar colorways. The Forum vs. Superstar comes in the Forum’s OG 1984 White and Royal makeup, while the Americana vs. Superstar comes dressed in the 1974 model’s OG Blue and Team College Red. The Top Ten silhouette, which was worn by the league’s top ten players when it debuted in 1979, is celebrated with a Collegiate Navy and Red colorway.

The throwback basketball-inspired adidas Superstar “Starting Five” pack is available at select retailers worldwide. Three of the colorways arrive on adidas.com (US) on February 13th. Check out the complete pack below.
