It’s not hard to see why Chicago was chosen to host this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend. The Windy City’s reputation as a cultural and sporting hub — it's home to five major sports franchises including the Chicago Bulls, widely regarded as one of the greatest NBA teams ever — is surpassed only by its notoriously brutal winters.

As adidas continues to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Superstar, the first low-top hoops shoe to feature all-leather uppers, what better way to show them off than to layer up and stunt in the city that helped elevate basketball to new heights?

While the Superstar has since traded in its basketball glory for a more casual pedigree, it’s become the go-to shoe for a new generation of creators and tastemakers who value style just as much as the next NBA star. To show what we mean, we connected with local creatives in the Chicago area who styled the iconic shell toes their own way.

See how they're rocking them below, and cop your pair of adidas Superstars here.
