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 “Three Stripes”. The tongue material is PVC foam.
