Back in 2020, adidas Originals and LEGO announced the extension of its partnership with the release of the ZX 8000 LEGO sneaker. The duo are back with not one, but two drops. The team has reimagined the classic Superstar sneaker in two variants. Launching for this unique drop is the adidas Originals LEGO Superstar sneaker, as well as a buildable Superstar LEGO brick model. Both releases feature unique features for an awe-inspiring collection, whether you’re a sneaker or figurine collector.

The latest drop brings its unique slant to the classic Superstar silhouette. adidas’ archival aesthetics are at the fore of the redesign. Paired with LEGO, it adds its instantly recognisable bricks.
It is featured in the iconic black and white colourway synonymous with the sneaker. As with the previous collabs, the adidas Originals LEGO Superstar sneaker includes the capability of building your LEGO bricks on the sneaker itself.
The upper is crafted in a leather construction, elevated by the custom three stripes, shell-toe and heel tab. Each of these elements have been carefully crafted to perfectly emulate the LEGO brick pattern. Rounding off the aesthetic is the striking gold foil accents.
Paired with the adult version, kids sizing will also be available. It brings a colourful and playful style to the Superstar, providing options for the whole family.
The adidas Originals LEGO Superstar will be available online at adidas.co.za, as well as selected retailers.

Complementing the sneaker is the LEGO Superstar set. You’ll get to build your very own Superstar sneaker, while also adding your own elements of flair and colour.
Mimicking the real thing, the LEGO version features the same graphics, shell toe, trefoil logo, the serrated three stripes and even the classic insole.
Owners will be able to build either a left foot or right foot, as the instructions include both options. Or you could buy two sets and create a pair to match your sneakers.
In addition to the sneaker set, it also includes 17 extra LEGO elements to customise your designs. It also includes its own shoelaces to tie the look together. And finally, there’s even an authentic shoebox, which can be used to display the final build.
LEGO requested six creators to take their ideas to the next level to create one-of-a-kind pieces with the LEGO adidas Originals Superstar. This featured a mix of colours and patterns to create something truly unique to match their individual style.
The LEGO adidas Originals Superstar 10282 model is also set to launch on 1 July. It’ll be available online at LEGO.com. This also includes in-store availability at LEGO stores and adidas stores globally.
Both the sneaker and the LEGO model will retail for R1,799.
