Lego Adidas Original Superstar

Published By

The video for U2’s 1991 song Even Better Than the Real Thing, features the band and their own lookalike group, The Doppelgangers swapping places several times, and asks the question, is instant gratification better than the truth?

And while owning the Lego building set might not be quite as good as owning Adidas’ “Real Thing” –– the Original Superstar first released in 1969 — it’s still a realistic tribute to the brand’s most iconic silhouette.

The 731-piece brick model is packed with authentic details like the famous shell toe, three serrated stripes, trefoil logo, and inner stamping. The set includes 17 extra lego elements so you can choose whether to build the right-foot or left, as well as  real-tie shoelaces, and an authentic shoe box. It also comes with a commemorative stand and plaque, as well as an instructional manual with a plethora of information on the heritage of the sneaker.

Price: $80
