Very Cool and Great Quality
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 April 2017
I was gladly surprised with the high quality of these shoes, and they are exactly as described.
First off, the pair I received - bought directly from Amazon - is definitely genuine. There are many cases of online reviewers saying they don't know if their shoes are actually Adidas originals or cheap copies, for one reason or another. Mine are definitely genuine, since the quality of all materials is very high and the finish is greatly done, golden symbols are indeed golden and not yellow, the stitching is greatly done, there are no significant glue leftovers on the leather (which is itself very good looking and smooth), the back Adidas symbol is the correct size and has the usual relief, the small stars on the toes are perfectly aligned - all of these things are usually incorrect in replicas. They are made in Indonesia but the quality is definitely as good as can be expected, and I recommend buying these over replicas which are usually about 30 to 50 percent the cost but have very low quality when compared to the genuine shoes.
The Adidas Superstar are very cool looking and very comfortable, no breaking-in was necessary, and they fit my feet perfectly. I did buy one size up from my usual shoe size, since this is what I usually do when buying sports shoes and it's never failed. Not sure why sports shoes seem to be smaller when compared to other type of shoes.
I'm not sure whether they would make good shoes for sports and I only intend to use them casually. They were initially designed as basketball shoes, though, so they should be good at least for casual sports, but they're probably not suitable for advanced players or professionals. The grip of the sole is definitely very good, though.
