Superstar, the OG adidas basketball shoe is back and this time round, adidas and Foot Locker have teamed up with DJ/producer, photographer and all round high-qual creative Ta-ku. Ta-ku’s work ethic rivals that of any Hollywood superstar; undertaking numerous simultaneous projects and constantly travelling. As founder of Team Cozy, Ta-ku knows what he likes and what the people want when it comes to sneakers. For the campaign, adidas and Foot Locker asked photographer Anthony Berlangieri, to photograph for us exclusively Ta-ku in his pair of black and white superstars in the streets of Sydney.
On what it means to be a superstar, Ta-ku says, “Boldness and bravery. Initiative and innovation. It’s about bringing others with you in a positive way and trying to get the community involved”.
The adidas Originals Superstar shoes retail for $120 AUD and are available at Foot Locker stores across Australia.
