When we heard about the new Sneeze Mag x adidas collab, all we knew was that it was going to be a Superskate. Immediately we said yes because in our opinion, the Superskate is a wildly under-utilised silhouette from the adidas archives AND they chose to use the OG model ie: not the vulcs. Sneeze is very dope, creative magazine as well so we knew we were on:
SNEEZE Magazine is a poster-size paper trail of intrigue, published independently since 2008. Through the scrupulous eyes of its editor-in-chief, MR. SNEEZE, the mag prepares a seasonal *omakase of skateboarding, art, music, and anything else deemed fit to print. Thanks to its massive size — over four times that of a typical magazine — its unbound pages become posters for the walls of its loyal readers.
The Superskate consists of an all black suede upper with white stripes and a black sole, this has to be the best colourway for any adidas. Whenever they do it across any of their silhouettes, it sells out immediately. Sneeze made some slight adjustments to the upper:
For Spring 2023, SNEEZE has conspired with adidas to subvert the Superskate Hi, manipulating it to be worn like a low. A world-class team of engineers, physicists, psychologists, and mathematicians were employed and then deployed to execute this highly unusual concept. After a rigorous phase of research and development, a series of complex tests resulted in a unanimous conclusion: that a reduced number of eyelets (8, to be specific, down from a whopping 10) combined with a 100% wider lace (12mm instead of the standard 6mm) creates the perfect ratio of high-to-low proportions.
The findings also concluded that this precise combination gives the shoe a tougher look. Stylistically, MR. SNEEZE designed these to be laced halfway up without a care in the world, and encourages skipping an eyelet or two—some muss, no fuss.

*Omakase is Japanese for 'leave it up to you'.
