Adidas is paying homage to the late Jam Master Jay with the release of their “Superstar” sneaker, VIBE reports.
The limited edition kicks will be released on what would have been Jay’s 51st birthday, Jan. 21st, 2016. With a white color scheme, the tongue will boast black and gold with Jay’s name etched into the design. The sneaker is similar to the Pro Model sneakers Adidas released earlier this year, also in Jay’s honor.
Limited Edition Superstar 'Jay' ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to give a massive shout to @shakejmj for allowing me to get my hands on these!?? With the anniversary of Jam Master Jay's untimely death, friends of Jay @shakejmj & @kingdmc came together to create a limited-edition Superstar & Pro Model dedicated to him, released in extremely limited numbers. In addition to the shoe, there's a dope limited-edition t-shirt and a shoebox that resembles a milk crate full of records. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #clicks #clickskicks #jmj #jmj4ever #originalsuperstar #superstar #adidasoriginals #adidasoriginals #rundm #jammasterjay #noairneeded #teamearly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
