Def Jam x adidas Superstar II – 25th Anniversary Collection – Redman

Brick-City icon Redman has long been a favorite among hip-hop heads, and now Adidas has given the Funk Doctor his own version of the iconic shell-toe Superstar. Most of the upper is blood-red, while the collar, laces, and small band around the thick rubber sole is a lighter, almost orange colored red. A comic-styled likeness of Redman adornes the tongue, his name is on the sole of the heel, the painted “R” appears on the heel in what appears to be a clear gel print, and the silver logo on the heel says “Funk Doc”. Providing some nice updates on the Superstar, the sole bottom has a nice splatter pattern, while the shell toe stays with the traditional white. Black appears on the lining, laces, and on the three stripes. A matching t-shirt is releasing as well that pays direct tribute to the artwork on the debut album, “Whut? thee Album”.
