Adidas Superstar Slip-On (Black) in Ortholite | How to Spot a Fake + Review


Adidas Superstar Slip-On  

Too lazy to tie up those laces on your shell-toes? Well, get yourself a new pair of Adidas Superstar Slip-On- a variation of the classic Superstar that has a more contemporary and stylish design. This is a must have for shell-toe collectors out there!

Adidas Superstar Slip-On in Ortholite Php 4,595

The Adidas (Men Originals) Superstar Slip-On is the second Adidas brand and the third pair of rubber shoes (the other one is a pair of Nike Air Huarache) that I bought this year. No, I didn't buy them on impulse or just to look fashionable. I bought these rubber shoes for comfort because I discovered that I have a heel spur or calcaneal spur.

Adidas Superstar | Background

The Superstar shoe debuted in 1969 and quickly gained ground first as a basketball shoe and then as a street-style favorite. Today, the beloved shell-toe look is reborn as a sassy slip-on. These Superstar shoes replace the laces with crisscross elastic straps for a snug fit. Other notable details are neoprene upper, leather details (on the ankle cage and tongue tab) and a rubber Superstar cupsole.


Adidas Superstar | Slip-On Version



  • Sleek slip-on shoe
  • Stretchy elastene upper with leather detailing
  • Classic rubber shell toe
  • Wide elastic straps that crosscross over forefoot for a snug fit
  • Enjoy the comfort and performance of Ortholite sockliner

  • Classic rubber shell toe completes the look

How to Spot a Fake | Adidas Slip-On


Adidas Superstar | Box

  • Comes in a blue box with featuring the Adidas stripes trefoil logo
  • Label features the style name, size, color and country of origin
  • Style number ART (ex. BZ0112) and PO# (117483645) must match those found on the label inside the shoe
  • MOST IMPORTANT!!! On the label inside the shoe, left pair has a different serial number from the right pair

Adidas Superstar | Shell Toe



  • The shell toe is a separate piece of material from the rest of the outsole
  • Three rubber stripes at the base of the shell toe

Adidas Superstar | Outsole



  • Check out the distinct pattern on the outsole

Adidas Superstar | Stitching




  • Stitching is even, with a good quality finish

Adidas Superstar | Logo



  • Adidas Superstar logo is debossed- the imprinted design causes depressions in the leather material leaving a depressed imprint of the image 

Adidas Superstar | Heel Tab


  • Heel tab, ankle cage and tongue tab have leather detailing

Adidas Superstar | Ortholite Insoles



  • Wicks away moisture
  • Long lasting cushioning
  • Air flow for a cool foot

What I like about Adidas Superstar Slip On




  • Super comfy, hello, Ortholite! I can wear it all-day everyday
  • Snug fit... thanks to its elastene material
  • Dirt-proof because it's BLACK!
  • I can pair it with any outfit

On a side note: My AdidasxKolor Special Edition Pure Boost ZG pair is size 5 1/2 (US). With Adidas Supestar Slip-On, I went half-size down to 5 (US). I highly suggest that you try on the Adidas Superstar Slip-On in store for comfort and fit before purchasing a pair. 

I bought my Adidas (Men Originals) Superstar Slip-On at Rustans, Shangri-La Plaza for Php 4,595 last June 23, 2017.
