The Supergrip was the go-to sneaker for basketball players in the mid-60s until the Superstar came along in 1970 and many of the details remain the same, what preceded the rubber shell toe was a rubber mudguard offering protection, the classic black stripes remain the same.
The never before retroed prototype sees a faithful recreation in 2020 as part of the Superstar's 50th-anniversary celebrations featuring a leather upper, rubber midsole, and gum rubber toe guard. There are two perforations above the edge of the sole in each of the gaps between the €œThree Stripes€�. The tongue material is PVC foam.
