To celebrate the upcoming Olympics taking place in Rio de Janeiro, athletic brand Adidas has unveiled a specially patterned pair of the Originals 'Superstar' silhouette. The design is a collaborative effort between several creatives including Gessica Justin, Hayala Garcia, Fernando Schlaepfer and others that showcases the pride of the South American city. The pattern reflects the city's skyline with a colorway themed after the branded Olympic games.

The Adidas Originals 'Superstar' 2016 Olympic game sneakers feature an understated print of the Rio de Janeiro skyline with the various buildings rendered in a blue, white and yellow pattern. The design is featured in the three stripes along the side of the shoe while a dark brown gum sole contrasts the pattern. The upper is made from an elegant cream colorway to keep the shoe minimal and classic.
