Adidas, Marvel And PlayStation Join Forces For Superstar Tribute To Miles Morales

Spoiler alert, Spider-Man dies. For those of you who didn’t already know we can only apologise, but poor old Peter Parker snuffed it in 2011, when Marvel comics introduced the none-too subtle storyline ‘Death of Spider-Man’. In his place came Miles Morales, the first black Spider-Man, who’s gone on to be a massive hit in comics and, if reviews are to believed, gaming as well.

And now, to mark the release of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, already available on PlayStation 4, and releasing on the brand spanking new PlayStation 5 this week, adidas have collaborated with Marvel Games and Sony PlayStation to create a shoe that takes inspiration from the web-slinging Morales. He was created by the writers after Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2008. Back then, almost every superhero was white and the writers believed children from minority groups needed a role model of their own. Now he’s not only got his own game, he’s got his own shoe.

To get your spidey-senses tingling, this classic colourway pays homage to the brand with its red premium leather upper beautifully contrasted by black leather and tonal stitching. The iconic three stripes are also a crisp black but the devil is as always, in the detail. The adidas Superstar Originals tongue print comes as no surprise but the PlayStation lace locks and the co-branded printed insoles are works of art. The red rubber outsoles make this sneaker pop - even the Green Goblin would envy these beauties.

As is the case with many sneaker releases these days, they will be available in either hi-top or low-top, take your pick. The shoes are already available in-game, which you can equip on Morales as you play, but if you want the real deal, you’ll have to wait until December 4 for European release, or November 19 in North America. They are set to cost around £70.
