Deviating from its louder commemorative takes found on the Solar Hu and Crazy BYW, adidas is set to release a mostly-white Superstar for the upcoming Chinese New Year. According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2020 is the Year of the Rat and the critter appears in a gold-foil finish on the tongue. Sharing the silhouette with the rodent, three water color-like graphics depicting a crane, tiger, and koi fish appear throughout the sneaker, although the latter two animals alternate between left and right shoe. Symbolic of longevity and peace, the feathered-bird on the lateral side midfoot has been adorned with a red beak and crown, as well as blue gradient feathers in a style resembling traditional Chinese painting. At the heel on the left shoe, the King of all Beasts – the tiger – gazes out mid roar. Rounding out the trifecta, a pink koi-fish – representative of good fortune – takes over much of the heel on the right shoe in a pinkish-purple palette also done in a water-color effect.
