When the Beastie Boys relocated to Los Angeles in the early-‘90s, it signaled a shift in their sound after the group’s second album failed to take off commercially, but it was their impeccable style and preference for the Three Stripes that remained largely unscathed.

As Highsnobiety and adidas Originals continue to celebrate 50 years of the Superstar, we’ve been looking at how the first low-top basketball sneaker became a fashion statement for a new generation of creators all across the country.

From New York City to Chicago, the iconic shell-toe lands on the feet of LA locals — like stylist Dominic Grizelle and professional dancer Melany Centeno — who show us how the City of Angels is wearing the Superstar today.

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