Managed to snag a new pair of Adidas Supermods over Christmas. This is only my third pair. My first pair was dark blue suede with white shell. Spotted them in a sports/trainer shop in the Overgate in about '97-98. At that time they were called Supermodified and I had first heard mention of a new style of Superstar with the stripes towards the toe in an article in the Beastie Boys' Grand Royal magazine ( They were discontinued not long after.
I think they made a short run again in the mid to late noughties as Supermods this time. I thought the black ones were to be my last pair.
These new ones are a bit garish for my taste but beggars can't be choosers.
