A first look at Jonah Hill's adidas Superstar The American actor and director celebrates the 50th birthday of the iconic silhouette

After many leaks and rumours, the official announcement was released last January. With a short video posted on his Instagram profile, Jonah Hill had, in fact, made his partnership with adidas official, without giving further details. A few weeks later the campaign of the sportswear giant, directed by Hill himself, was released, which featured high-profile names close to the brand, such as Pharrell WilliamsYara ShahidiBlondey McCoy and Sfera Ebbasta

Now Hill has revealed the look of its adidas collaboration, which as expected, will focus on a silhouette that has made the history of the brand and that turns 50 this year. The adidas Superstar by Hill is characterized by white premium leather, the Three Stripes and the laces are dipped in white as well, the only coloured accents are visible on the heel of the sneaker, where Hill's initials are engraved and on the lateral side, where the writing Superstar makes its appearance. From what we can see from the images, there might be a similar artwork also in the inner part of the sneaker, while the tongue is enriched by adidas's claim written in French. For this sneaker, Hill drew inspiration mainly from the 90s, and especially from the style and the way hip hop and skate communities used to wear this silhouette, the fat laces might, in fact, be a clear reference to their stylistic choices. 

adidas Superstar by Jonah Hill will be available from April 10 on adidas website in a limited edition.
