Cop these crispy, deadstock kicks

It seems that Sneakerheads have found a new way to collect their favorite classic designs without devastating their bank accounts. Ever since the introduction of the LEGO 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar set, I’ve personally been looking forward to seeing how sneaker fanatics would adapt their own bricks into iconic shoes from the past and present. Builder John Huang is one such inspired fan. He’s made a few different sneakers so far but this Adidas Stan Smith model is the first to feature a brick-built display. The shoe itself is well built, capturing the sleek, simple design of its namesake and its patch of vivid green on the heel. The display stand for the shoe is based on the lid of an Adidas shoebox and John did a great job at capturing the angles of the iconic Adidas stripes, as well as the logo on the sides of the lid.

LEGO 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar [Review]

We first learned about the collaboration between LEGO and Adidas last September when the teaser appeared on social media. Recalling some of the previous LEGO Wear products, the fans rightfully expected nothing more than several pairs of LEGO-themed running shoes in Adidas stores. Although the actual Adidas ZX 8000 sneakers were an instant hit, hardly could we see what the collaboration may bring in the future. As it turns out, LEGO designers saw a unique opportunity to take the partnership to the next level, building an Adidas Superstar sneaker with LEGO bricks. This way comes 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar, a 731-piece model of the most iconic Adidas shoe. The set will be available from July 1 for US $79.99 | CAN $109.99 | UK £79.99. And it’s so much more than just a building set: to understand better what actually this product is, we talked to Florian Müller, Senior Designer, who took the idea from the concept to the actual model in the box.

The LEGO Group provided The Brothers Brick with an early copy of this set for review. Providing TBB with products for review guarantees neither coverage nor positive reviews.

These sneakers were built for... walking?

Being an adult fan of LEGO isn’t easy these days. Before, all you needed was to buy new sets and to visit local meet-ups. Today, it’s not only about organizing your collection and home displays but also about updating your wardrobe. However, it looks like builder mcvennie decided to build a pair of the latest Adidas ZX 8000 instead of spending a hefty sum chasing exclusive shoes. I’d say the LEGO version of the LEGO sneakers looks as good as the real ones. The colors are obviously spot on, and I particularly love the abundance of open studs; there’s no better way to give something a LEGO identity. Now, I wonder if I have enough bricks to build some in my size…
