Original Story (03/12/21): Along with the upcoming ZX 8000, Sean Wotherspoon and adidas are releasing a sequel to their SUPEREARTH Superstar that initially dropped in August of 2020.

This SUPEREARTH Superstar follows the same mission of the first version to eliminate manufacturing waste and use environmentally friendly manufacturing techniques. While the first Superstar came in mostly white, this version is a direct contrast with the vegan leather upper dressed in black, accented by green along the eyelets, blue on the heels, and red sock lining. The colorful embroidered flower designs come in different colors but are very familiar in their construction.

The SUPEREARTH Superstar uses 100% vegan materials, inspired by Wotherspoon’s vegan lifestyle. While the Superstar’s leather upper is an obvious target for a vegan redress—this Superstar’s is made from 100% recycled polyester—its rubber sole uses 90% sustainably sourced natural tree rubber with colorful flecks of waste rubber. Additionally, its vividly branded insole is made from leftover Ortholite material and cork (considered highly renewable and environmentally friendly).

Wotherspoon originally teased this second SUPEREARTH Superstar on Instagram last week, announcing a surprise China-only release. Today, Wotherspoon followed up that announcement to say that due to the excitement they would be releasing worldwide. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for release updates.
