Summer in Japan is always sticky business. To help cope with the sweltering conditions adidas Origials have trimmed down the Superstar, turning it into a waterproof Beachstar sandal. The Crocs and Native comparisons are obvious, but the silhouette has a particularly Japanese bent thanks to the cutout neoprene heel. Kids in Japan have long been wearing their Superstars as slip-on sandals by crushing down the shoe’s heel with their foot, so these colourful rubber clogs kind of make sense. A Japanese release exclusive to the giant ABC-Mart sneaker supermarket chain, thanks to Espionagekicks for the news.
