I have always had this "thing" for Adidas. Fron one, they are super comfortable but I totally associate them with growing up in the Boogie Down Bronx. I will never forget when I saw my first pair on a girl on MTV back in the day when they used to show music videos. I just knew I needed a pair and that's when my love affair began. I mean, I remember when I used to save my allowance to go to B Boy (breakdancing) competitions but mainly to see what everyone was wearing and how they were rocking their shell toes.
Man, those were the days!
I really love these Adidas Superstar Up's because they've maintained their signature style but added a subtle 1.5" hidden inner wedge for us short girls. Yaaaaas! Like if I needed another reason to love them.
