Huge thanks going out to my man Marko for the hook up on these Stussy Huaraches. I had the oranges a while ago, but had to let them go as they were too small, so I’m really glad to now have them in a size that fits better, and as a bonus the greens as well.
This brings back some happy memories of skating in the late eighties/early nineties. The tricks were so basic when you look back at stuff like this….good times though.
Thanks to Dave from Daves Wearhouse for pointing this out.
Anyone who’s got experience of buying vintage stuff from a selection of manufacturers, will probably sing the same song as me: Probably 80% of vintage Nikes are not wearable and will invariably crumble when worn….Adidas however, seem to have a better reliability when it comes to retaining integrity….whether that be down to the lack of air units or not I don’t know, it just seems to be the case.
This, Quesence is one of my very favourite vintage adi pieces and is in amazing condition for their age….every other pair I’ve seen (of which there are very few) seem to have had some pretty bad colour bleeding issues. They do however, have a slight problem on the left shoe where some of the stitching on the upper has failed….as long as they don’t fall apart/crumble though, I’m happy to show them off whenever I can.
As uncomfortable and difficult to photograph as they are, the Superstar will always hold a special place in my heart. Maybe it’s got something to do with the fact that I was brought up in the 70’s and 80’s when Hip Hop was becoming more and more prevalent. Either way, I’ll always have a few pairs in my collection, and they’ll always get aired out from time to time.
This Vintage canvas version, is a fine example of how, you don’t need to flashy colours or space age technology, to make a nice shoe….the very fact that the Superstar has stayed popular for so many years is a testament to it’s timeless design.

I thought I’d wear these Vintage Adidas Street Plus one last time before sending them off to Adidas Germany. Looking at the recent spate of early 90s runners being put out by the legendary German marque, here’s hoping that they make it onto the production line sometime in the near future.

If someone can let me know what model these are it would be greatly appreciated.

Big up to Jerome (The man from Le Mans) for sorting me out with this fine pair of buttery leather vintage 577. You have to feel the leather to appreciate exactly how soft it is….proper quality.
