LEGO 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar was revealed just a few days ago, along with our in-depth review of the set and the announcement of the Adidas Originals LEGO Superstar Sneaker. Designer Florian Müller talks about how he designed the shoe and the challenges he faced.
Florian has been wearing Superstar sneakers since he was 16 – he says it was obvious he would take on the project. He says the biggest challenge was that there had never been a shoe before and he needed to create an organic shape with static, mostly square bricks. Then there was the challenge of creating a good building experience, with a solid build. Florian had the opportunity to work with the Adidas Originals design team and get the ideas and perspectives they had when designing a shoe.
He mentions two new elements made for the LEGO 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar: the 5 × 5 dome and the lace. While the dome piece is printed for this set, he says we’ll likely see it in future sets. As for the lace, it is curious to know what the manufacturers will create with this new element.
There is a nice little clue throughout the video, which can be seen up close around 1:40 in the video. This is an Adidas Originals Superstar mini sneaker, in the inverted colors of the large version accompanied by a figurine that seems to carry a shoebox. There is one set, 40486 Mini Adidas Originals Superstar, which is most likely this one. However, there is no information yet on whether it will be a GWP.
