Before Rio de Janeiro hosts the Summer Olympics, the city first welcomed adidas Originals’ new store in the Ipanema neighborhood. The Brazilian Three Stripes design team linked with four local creatives to craft a Superstar in celebration of “Cidade Maravilhosa,” or “The Marvelous City,” and all of its splendor. The elements are translated onto the white silhouette: the beach, city, sand and cobblestones are mirrored in the blue side branding and heel tab, minute surfboards in the heel and speckled midsole made from recycled rubber.
Unfortunately, this pair is an Ipanema exclusive, but if for any reason you find yourself in Rio this season, find them at the adidas Originals store.
