Why We Love Them: Adidas has teamed up with Sean Wotherspoon for its Superearth initiative, and together they have reimagined a rad new version of the iconic Superstar sneaker that has flowers embroidered on it. You probably remember Sean from his collaboration with Nike for his creation of rainbow Air Max 97s that went viral a few years back. For his collab with Adidas, Sean made sure the sneakers are free from animal ingredients, making this one of a handful of vegan sneakers by the brand.

"People know that I'm vegan, and it's a foundation of who I am. It's a cornerstone of all my projects, and part of sustainable living. Adidas loved it and we started to look at all the ways we can bring vegan materials to the Superstar," he said in a press release. The sneakers feature floral drawings sketched by Wotherspoon, with embroidered threads emerging from the upper.

Through the Superearth initiative, the sneakers were created in mind to reduce material waste during the footwear manufacturing process, as well as the use of products like recycled rubber.
