Introducing the new adidas Originals Superstar City pack, due to drop this month.
This limited edition collection features the classic Superstar 80’s silhouette and is presented in 6 bold, mono colourways.
The City pack is inspired by 6 major cities in the world and each colour represents this: London (Red), New York (Black), Berlin (Grey), Paris (Blue), Tokyo (Violet) and Shanghai (Yellow). Each style is presented in a premium suede, with subtle gold branding on the side that states the city it pairs with. They also have a famous landmark etched on the heel of each style in gold, adding to the luxe feel of the whole pack.
The adidas Superstar 80’s City Pack will be available online and in all stores.
Launch date: Thursday 28th May 2015
This weekend 3 of our OFFSPRING London stores were taking over by the adidas Originals x Pharrell Supercolor superstar collection, Commercial St (Shoreditch), Neal St (Covent Garden) and Camden.
Showcasing all 50 colours, the stores were like walking into a bag of Skittles and there were plenty of extra treats in-store, including cupcakes, sweets, keyrings and a GIF generator to play with.
The stores filled with eager customers who unsurprisingly found it difficult to pick a colour out of the 50 and we quick to make a GIF with their favourite colours.
Selected colours are still available in OFFSPRING stores and online here.
For the next 3 days we are lucky enough to have the adidas Originals x Pharrell Supercolor collection take over 3 of our OFFSPRING stores, Neal St (Covent Garden), Camden & Commercial St (Shoreditch). We have all 50 colours in stock.
These three stores will only be selling the collection, showcasing all 50 colours, so make sure to get yourselves down there before they fly out!

adidas Originals have teamed up with Korean menswear designer Juun J to rework some iconic silhouettes.
Known for its dark and elaborate collections, the Korean label keeps it simple with an all-white and all-black aesthetic and simple details. Featuring leather uppers, the iconic rubber shell toe box and three Velcro straps for a secure lockdown, the clean upper sits atop a white rubber outsole which rounds out the design.
Juun.J graduated from ESMOD Seoul in 1992 and worked at many prestigious fashion houses before creating his own label “Lone Costume” in 1999.
In 2007, Juun.J debuted his label during Paris Men’s Fashion Week to great acclaim. By deconstructing traditional ideas in menswear, Juun.J quickly establishes himself as the most innovative designer to watch during fashion week.
His avant design and classicism with his precise tailoring will no doubt continue to be a tour de force in the evolution of menswear

The iconic Superstar 80’s silhouette has embraced it’s history with the “Deluxe” pack, an adidas Originals release of some classic Superstar colourways that pay homage to the trainer’s original roots.
Constructed in a fresh, luxury off-white leather, the ever-popular shoe is enhanced with assorted three stripe branding that decorates the side panel.
The inspired launch is finished off with signature details such as the perforated side panel, gold foil blocked tongue branding, complementary trefoil branded heel tabs and the unmistakable rubber shell toe.
The adidas Originals Superstar “Deluxe” pack will hit stores and online soon in 4 colourways.
If anyone happened to find themselves walking down Bethnal Green Road in London last night they would have seen a pretty big queue developing next to a blacked out shop. The people looked like the familiar sneaker release crowd but it wasn’t the latest Jordan they are queuing through the night for, its the 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4.
To honour 20 years of PlayStation fever, Sony have released a special edition PlayStation 4 in the same grey as the original and are selling it for….wait for it….£19.94!
But there is a catch, there are only 94 in the stock room, hence the huge queue and the recipient has to be in possession of a piece of PlayStation memorabilia and a super secret password in order to receive this bargain.
This pop up store in East London is decked out like it has time travelled from 1994 and will have all the retro game favourites. It is open for 3 days only and will stock the full price Anniversary PlayStation from Thursday for £399 with all proceeds from the pop up going to the charity Games Aid.
To celebrate this exciting store opening we thought we would showcase some of our favourite 90’s trainers in case you decide to visit and want to get into the spirit of things.
The adidas Equipment Running models were released in 1991 as part of a performance range and boasted the adidas Torsion system which allows for movement and stability. The colourway of white, green and black is the OG colourway of this collection.
The iconic Nike Air Huarache also released in 1991 was the first to display the unique stretch grip neoprene sock fit upper. Inspired by the Native American sandal from where it takes its name, the Air Huarache doesn’t feature the Swoosh but has Nike written across the heel strap.
The PlayStation pop up shop is open for 3 days only from today and will close on Friday 12th December.

We have teamed up with adidas again to launch a pack of two unique styles featuring some classic silhouettes fused with premium materials.
First released in 1988 the ZX420 has been pulled into the 21st century featuring a mix of mono red croc effect leather, creased leather and suede uppers, whilst keeping true to its original ZX shape. The tongue features lightweight reflective components and contrasting, tonal branded ice gum sole.
Also reminiscent of the early 90’s; the Torsion Response Lite, adopts a modern style whilst staying true to its running roots. The classic moulded sock liner features a neoprene update, stingray effect, grey leather uppers and classic nubuck 3-Stripes.
Designed collaboratively in-house, this exclusive pack launches on the 21st November and will only be available in OFFSPRING stores and online here.
Modern styling meets retro technology in a special adidas Originals release, exclusive to Offspring.
This pack brings out two classic running models from the adidas archive and gives them a fresh makeover for 2014, courtesy of the Offspring creative team. Taking colour inspiration from vintage track tops and then updating the designs with premium materials,this release combines the best of retro design and modern construction in one special pack.
The adidas ZX420 was first released in 1988, when it was originally crafted for the serious long distance runner. Pre-dating the Torsion system by only a few months, this lightweight model features a comfortable three-piece EVA midsole and teams it up with a well-designed upper that has stood the test of time.
The adidas Torsion Response Lite premiered in 1992. This reworked version features clever and functional updates in the form of AdiPRENE cushioning in the sole unit, a revised inner sock and tongue area and special details, such as the spring-loaded lace locks. Flip the shoe upside-down and there’s the reassuring sight of the Torsion bar: one of the most-loved examples of functional design in sportswear history.
Both shoes get a full premium transformation here. The adidas Torsion Response Lite finds itself re imagined in luxurious two-tone pigskin on the toe box and side panels, with a vibrant green inner sock to hold the foot steady. Special elements, such as 3M detailing on the Stripes and heel tabs, the bright pink Torsion bar and colour-matched laces, complete the makeover. The adidas ZX420 steps out in full neon regalia: purple neoprene uppers offset the black suede overlays and pink 3M Stripes. An additional full-length 3M tongue panel is the perfect sign off on this unique and exciting twin-pack.
This UK exclusive pack launches Friday 3rd October and will be available online here and in all OFFSPRING stores.

From our exclusive collaboration with adidas we can now reveal the third and final instalment from our Retro vs. Marble pack, focusing on the ZX8000.

The lightweight mesh upper is supported by suede overlays, a pairing inspired by the adidas archive and includes lightweight EVA cushioning, a heel stabiliser and a slip-resistant rubber outsole.
The first exclusive ZX8000 from this pack showcases a ‘90s style retro classic in a mid grey, metallic silver and purple colourway.
The second ZX8000 features a black, pink and emerald colourway with our exclusive marble effect on the side panels, highlighted by adidas’ classic 3 stripes in metallic silver.
