The Oscar-nominated actor and director announced in January 2020 a collaboration with Adidas to design multiple shoes. The first of these were recently revealed over the summer with a fresh take on a classic Superstar.
The special edition of the versatile kick gets three colors—core white for the full grain leather upper, off-white for the toe box and rubber outsole, and “Green Night” for the laces’ stitching effect and heel counter. Handwritten embroidery—also in green—spells “Superstar” and “JH.” The overall aesthetic is meant to be a nod to the 1990s music scene. It’s a fitting theme given that Hill’s acclaimed directorial debut Mid90s boasted a stellar soundtrack stacked with retro hip-hop and punk rock.
The Adidas x Jonah Hill Superstar is priced new at approx. $140 and used versions on StockX, the shoe buy-sell site, are trading hands at $89.
