adidas Originals by Edison Chen, Second Global Collaboration Drop: CLOT Superstar

adidas Originals and Edison Chen announce the CLOT Superstar by Edison Chen in black, the second global footwear drop in their collaboration. This release is a continuation of an inner journey that encourages us to step up our fashion game and mature our style, inspired by Edison’s own artistic journey.

Designed as a modern spin on the Superstar and inspired by classic suiting, The CLOT Superstar by Edison Chen was first seen during CLOT’s runway show in Shanghai Fashion Week, and is now reimagined in black. Keeping the essence of tailoring but updated with sleek details, the new style is perfect for wearing in your neighborhood or on a wild adventure; from a cool speakeasy to a cozy bookstore or a chic runway. The iconic shell toe is reimagined with finely crafted handstitched ridges in premium leather for a modern twist. The midsole and outsole now sport a unique ripple sole, a visible black EVA wedge, and a classy leather welt. The pristine black hue is accentuated by contrasting white adidas stripes and logo embellishments.

Made to wear in far off locales, the CLOT Superstar by Edison Chen is designed with sophistication at the forefront, bringing forth a new level of elegance, where a sneaker becomes a collectible piece of footwear. This collaboration embodies the timeless intuition of traditional suiting juxtaposed against sportswear functionality. Edison Chen’s vision and eye for ingenuity is seen prominently through the collection’s footwear offering.

The “Black Superstar” campaign takes you on a personal journey, allowing you to immerse yourself into the House of Edison Chen alongside DPR Ian, Joyce Wrice, and Brent Faiyaz. Their thoughts, memories, and reflections bring the new collab’s silhouette to life, introducing a new perspective of EDC’s House to the whole community. Heritage is honored throughout this campaign, and connects you to a variety of cultures.

Continue embarking on the cultural journey with adidas Originals and Edison Chen’s CLOT Superstar Black by exploring the passion, motives, and perspectives that define Edison Chen’s world.

The CLOT Superstar by Edison Chen in black will be available in-store, online at, and through the CONFIRMED app beginning April 8, 2024 and is priced at $200 USD.
